Colorful peppers are stir-fried with chicken. Balsamic vinegar and basil bring plenty of flavor to this exciting dish.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
- 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into strips
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 orange bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 4 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon dried basil
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, divided
Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the chicken in the skillet, season with salt and pepper, and brown on both sides. Remove from heat, and set aside.
Heat remaining oil in the skillet over medium heat, and stir in the red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, orange bell pepper, and onion. Cook about 5 minutes, until tender. Mix in the garlic, and cook and stir about 1 minute. Mix in the basil and 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar.
Return the chicken to the skillet. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Stir in remaining balsamic vinegar just before serving.
