I got this recipe from a website called ShapeFit.com. I just tried it and it was really good. I made some whole wheat pasta to eat the chicken and peppers over and it was really good. The sauce is a little sweet, but I think the pasta really helped to make it not too sweet. And the recipe actually calls for a full pound of chicken breasts and it is supposed to be 4 servings, but I only had three small chicken breasts so I just split the peppers and sauce over those.
