We were finally home for an evening and I was even able to work from home, so I took the time to cook up the Chicken with Garlic, Mushrooms and Peppers from the Paleo cookbook I have. It turned out really good and was definitely a hit with the boy too.
Lots of mushrooms which is always a good thing!
Here is the recipe, I made this in my Le Creuset which I think really made the chicken cook up nice and tender.
Garlic Chicken with Mushrooms and Pepper Sauce
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces (I have been buying the free range organic from Trader Joe's, I cannot believe the difference in flavor)
2 T olive oil
1/2 t. sea salt ( I never measure salt and pepper and just put in to taste)
1/4 t. pepper
1/2 t. chili powder (we like things with a little heat, so I added a lot more than this)
1 clove garlic (I don't think a recipe should start off with the word garlic and just have 1 clove, I think I added 4)
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 carton white button mushrooms, sliced
2 red bell peppers, sliced (I used 1 red, 1 green, colorful!)
1 can lite coconut milk
Marinate the chicken in 1 T. olive oil, garlic and chili powder. Refrigerate 1 to 4 hours. In a pot/pan (whichever you prefer) saute in 1 T. olive oil, onions until translucent, add chicken, saute until brown, add peppers and coconut milk. Simmer 20 minutes or until done. Enjoy!
