Roast Chicken with Balsamic Peppers

 

Roast Chicken with Balsamic Peppers

I was recently sent a copy of  My Recipes America’s Favorite Food (see information about the giveaway at the bottom of this post) that is filled with delicious recipes from several of the country’s best magazines.

There was a recipe for chicken breasts that sounded simple yet gourmet. We loved the flavor that the rub gave to the chicken and the softened peppers and onions in the balsamic sauce were really delicious served on top of the tender chicken.  I served this dish with the Grilled Vegetable Panzanella for a hearty, healthy, and seriously tasty meal.

How to Make Roast Chicken with Balsamic Peppers

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Heat a large OVEN PROOF skillet coated in cooking spray and 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Combine the fennel seeds, garlic powder, oregano, sea salt & freshly cracked pepper, to taste in a small dish and mix well.  Sprinkle spice rub evenly over both sides of the chicken.

Add chicken to the hot skillet and cook for 3 minutes or until browned. Turn chicken over; then place into the oven for 20 minutes, or until the chicken has cooked through. Remove the chicken to a serving plate and cover with a tin foil tent.

Add the remaining olive oil over medium-high heat in the same skillet. Add bell peppers and onion; sauté for 3 minutes. Stir in broth, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Reduce heat; simmer for 5 minutes.

Increase heat to medium-high. Stir in vinegar then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste; cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Serve bell pepper mixture and sauce over chicken. Enjoy!

  23. I know that the contest is over but still want to comment. I think the scan it feature is rather cool, first time I have seen that in a cook book but it totally makes sense.
    I went with Recipage for my micro-formatting because it had the built in share links too (for Pinterest, Twitter, and FB). But now it seems like those aren’t working right. I might look into using ziplist instead.
