How to Make It

Step 1

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook for 10 minutes or until well browned on both sides.  Remove the chicken from the skillet.

Step 2

Heat the remaining oil in the skillet over medium heat.  Add the peppers and onion and cook until the vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.  Stir in the broccoli and cook for 2 minutes.

Step 3

Stir in the sauce.  Return the chicken to the skillet.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.  Slice the chicken before serving.

Recipe Tips

  • Make Ahead Freezer Meal:  Prep the vegetables and place into a resealable freezer bag.  Place the chicken into another resealable freezer bag.  Seal the bags (removing all air) and freeze.  Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before following recipe as written.

    I made this as a spur of the moment decision. Did not take me long at all and was so easy to make. To give an example as to how good it was. I doubled the recipe with the thought for left overs the next day. Turns out I did not make enough. My family devoured it. Even the two that are extremely picky when it comes to food. This was so good. I will definitely be making this one again.

    Good but much better with more seasoning

    I like it better after I added some oregano, basil & Italian seasoning. I also added a can of diced tomatoes. I guess it's the Italian in me that needs the Italian seasoning. I also placed it over spaghetti. Excellent for company.
