This has been a lazy week for me.  I’ve had time to relax, catch up on some reading, and find some new recipes.  I’ve done a lot of cooking and have really enjoyed some time just chilling.  I have even been making more relaxed, simple dinner this week.  Last night we had chicken with red pepper sauce.

I put some simple seasonings on the chicken breast and sauteed it in a pan.  The red pepper sauce is made from a combination of red peppers, seasonings, white wine, and chicken broth.  The color really pops against the chicken.  The sauce is slightly spicy and a little bit sweet.  It’s delicious and perfect with a side of vegetables.

Red Pepper Sauce over Chicken  (adapted from Tasty Trials)

2 T. chopped shallot
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 t. cumin
1/2 t. red pepper
1/2 t. black pepper

2/3 c. chicken broth
1/4 c. dry white wine
1 lb. chicken breasts
1 t. paprika
1 t. salt
1 t. black pepper

1.  Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat.  Saute the shallots for 2-3 minutes.  Add in the garlic and saute for an additional 30 seconds.

2.  Add in the chopped peppers and saute for 5 minutes.  Stir in the spices, chicken broth, and white wine.  Bring to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes.

3.  Meanwhile, sprinkle the chicken breasts with paprika, salt, pepper, and oregano.  Heat the remaining olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.

4.  Cook the chicken breasts for 5-7 minutes per side or until they are cooked through.

5.  Pour the cooked pepper mixture into a food processor and process until almost smooth.

6.  Place the chicken on a plate and spoon red pepper sauce over top.

  1. Looks Great. Peppers are one thing I’m usually able to grow pretty well, so I’m sure i will be referring to this recipe this summer.
