Chicken with Balsamic Peppers

I’ve come to find that I adore peppers. On pizza, chopped fresh in a salad, in a stir fry, in anything, really. And with the chicken and balsamic sauce in this recipe, I’ve become an even bigger fan. I made this the other day for dinner, and my friends devoured it. It also smells heavenly. And though it’s pretty easy to throw together, it sounds (and tastes) complicated. So if you want to impress, try this!

(This recipe is a variation of a recipe by Gluten-Free Goddess.)

Ingredients (4 servings)

4 large ripe bell peppers: red, green, orange, yellow; cored and sliced thin

1 large onion, sliced thin

1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons gluten-free Worcestershire Sauce

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup of chicken broth

4 fresh cloves of garlic, chopped

1 tablespoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon thyme

1/2 teaspoon rosemary

2 fresh, organic free-range chicken breasts, rinsed and patted dry, cut in half length-wise

Sea salt and ground pepper, to taste


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit

2. Slice the peppers and onion and place in a bowl.

3. In a large cup, mix your sauce: balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, broth, garlic and herbs. Pour the mixture over the sliced peppers and onions and toss well to coat.

4. Place the split chicken breasts in an oiled baking pan. Season with sea salt and pepper, to taste.

5. Pour the balsamic pepper mixture over the chicken and arrange evenly. Use every last drop of sauce.

6. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes. You want the chicken to be cooked through (no longer pink inside) and the peppers to be limp and soft.

7. Serve with a side dish of rice or quinoa, a creamy soup, or crisp green salad on the side. Enjoy!
