Chicken in Sweet Pepper Sauce Recipe

Chicken in Sweet Pepper Sauce Recipe

"I learned to prepare this dish from a local chef before I was married, but I've varied it slightly," Jennifer Class of Kirkland, Washington shares. "Served with a green salad and rice or potatoes, it makes a simple but elegant meal for two."
