I ladle this vegetable-packed chicken dish over jasmine rice. It’s a long-grain rice that’s not as sticky as most, but any cooked rice, including brown, works here. —Virginia Crowell, Lyons, Oregon

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil, divided
  • 3/4 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup undrained diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons chicken broth
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh basil or 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • Hot cooked rice
  • Minced fresh parsley, optional

Directions

In a large saucepan, saute the green peppers, onion, celery and garlic in 1/2 teaspoon oil until tender. Add mushrooms; cook until liquid has evaporated. Stir in the tomatoes, broth, oregano, lemon juice, basil and spices. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 5-10 minutes or until slightly thickened and flavors are blended.
Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, saute chicken in remaining oil until no longer pink. Return chicken to pan; stir in sauce. Heat through, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Serve over rice; garnish with parsley if desired. Yield: 2 servings.
