Recipe Ingredients for Chicken and Red Peppers

0.05 cup Cornstarch
0.5 cup Light
1 clove Garlic
0.5 tsp Lemon
8 oz Fresh Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 large (2-1/4 per lb, approx 3-3/4" long, 3" dia) Peppers, Sweet, Red

Recipe Directions for Chicken and Red Peppers

  1. Stir the cornstarch, 1/4 cup of broth, garlic and lemon pepper together until smooth; add the chicken strips and toss to coat.

  2. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

  3. Add the chicken mixture and remaining broth; cook and stir for 2 minutes.

  4. Add red pepper strips; cook and stir until the chicken is no longer pink and the peppers are crisp-tender, about 6-8 minutes. (During this time, I added a little water to the pan because I was afraid it was going to cook dry. It worked out well, and produced a nice sauce.).

  5. Garnish with green onions or chives.
