IMG_3516I hoped to have this recipe up last week but had a bit of  planning to do as we prepared to celebrate a very special occasion. 

With that said…  

Here’s  a tasty chicken dish with peppers and tomatoes in a lemon-wine sauce (sort of a like a mediterranean stir fry).  Serve this with brown rice or whole grain orzo (Tip: cooked in stock or bouillon for added flavor)



First, sauté the peppers and onions


Then, I sauté the chicken



Return peppers and onions and add the tomatoes and liquids until done

…without further ado here’s the quick and easy recipe card:
