We loved this dish! Great flavor and so easy! I DID make two changes to the recipe-1) I used small pieces of boneless, skinless chicken thighs and breasts and prepared per the recipe. I also used diced canned tomatoes since the recipe called for chopping them anyway. I served it over gemelli pasta (probably not very "Basque" but really good). We had the leftover a couple of nights later and it was just as good as the first time. Definitely something we will have often and I will also try it with pork. I wonder though why anyone has a problem with "Piperade", it sounds fancier than "pork and peppers".

I thought this was very good, I didn't have a Spanish onion, so I substituted a sweet onion, and my husband doesn't like red peppers so I substituted orange. I served it with Spanish rice and it was good, next time I will use less peppers.

CountryGirl, I took your advice and tried this. Absolutely fabulous! I used the red peppers and diced tomatoes. I also had some Spanish rice that I added right to the dish. Flavor was excellent. I think you are right about the name throwing people off. Try this dish. You won't be sorry.

O.M.G this is SO good! I make this a lot but I use 4 green bell peppers because the green is cheaper than the red bell peppers. I also use 2 cans of stewed tomatoes instead of the tomatoes called for in this receipe. I have made this more than any other T.O.H receipe that I've collected over the years. I'm so glad I first tried this over more than 15 years ago. I can't believe that there isn't more reviews for this AWSOME dish! It's always been my "Go to receipe" when ever I want to make something that's really good. I will always make this for my family as well as for myself..lol. It's in my TOP 5 ALL TIME FAVORITES!! Please try this. I'm wanting to see how many of you T.O.H lovers will Love this! I always call this my "Pork and Peppers" I think people see the Piperade word/part of this receipe and say "What's that?" It's just a fancy word for "Pork and Peppers" You really got to TRY THIS ONE!!!
