We love this Skillet Chicken with Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Sauce! Simply blend up store bought roasted red peppers along with garlic, chicken stock some spices and a touch of cream. Pour over seared chicken breast and dinner is done!
In a world full of food no’s, this Chicken in Creamy Red Pepper Sauce is a big old yes!
Store bought roasted red peppers are the base of this lovely dish . This recipe makes a ton of sauce. Don’t you hate making creamy recipes that never have enough sauce? I have that problem with homemade frosting…why is there never enough frosting? Or filling? There is never enough filling….so glad I have a blog to change all that!
How to make this delicious Chicken
in Creamy Red Pepper Sauce
A jar of roasted red peppers that you puree with whatever blender gadget you have. I have a Nutri Bullet and love that thing. A food processor will do the job nicely as would an immersion blender. If you have no blender gadgets, you can simply mince the red peppers and have a heartier sauce.
Pour the blended sauce over your seared chicken and simmer! Its that easy!
I have many many plans for this pan. Big Pan Plans! Huuuuuge plans.
Sprinkle with feta, goat cheese or parmesan cheese and serve with pasta if you like.
There is plenty of sauce for it! We like our sauces around here and this makes a ton!
You can use whole chicken breasts, or cutlets. If using cutlets simply reduce the simmer time a bit checking for doneness after 8-9 minutes.
This recipe easily doubles or triples to feed a crowd. You can use this sauce for fish as well.
Other great recipes that includes roasted red peppers and a shot of cream is our Gnocchi Sausage Soup .
Or forget the chicken and just go with pasta! Roasted Red Pepper Fettuccine with Creamy Feta!
