Fire Roasted Tomato-Red Pepper Chicken
Serves 4
Simple and easy. This recipe is all about the sauce which means it's all about the roasted freshness of both the tomatoes and red peppers. It's almost a Chicken Cacciatore style but much simpler. Having said that, feel free to add other sauteed ingredients like eggplant or mushrooms to garnish.

  1. 1 1⁄2 lbs. Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast
