Valerie Moore of Olathe, Kansas likes using a colorful blend of peppers to brighten her skillet specialty—and a little balsamic vinegar to flavor the tender chicken. If you prefer a stronger flavor, add a little more!

"Eliminated the salt and substituted a salt-free "mural of flavor" herb mix (Penzey's). Ended up using less oil too - very yummy, even the 4 year old loved it. Served with mashed potatoes but would be very good with orzo or roasted potatoes (perhaps with a little Parmesan)"
