recipe: chicken with roasted red pepper sauce October 17, 2011

I first ate a roasted red pepper sauce at a restaurant, where they made me something special because I wasn’t able to eat anything there. and although I’m not a big fan of meals with plain chicken breasts (I overdosed on them when I was first diagnosed with celiac disease), this dish was beyond delicious! in fact, the sauce was so good that I practically licked the bowl. I immediately went home to try and figure it out, and it turns out it’s extremely simple!

just take one of those little jars of roasted red peppers, and throw the whole thing (juice and peppers both) into a blender. then throw in a can of whole peeled tomatoes. and that’s basically it! the rest is just optional. I usually throw in a little olive oil (one or two Tbls), possibly garlic, some salt and pepper, and blend it up. it’s ready to go!

I usually cook the chicken breast in the oven, and then throw the sauce on top for an extra 3-5 minutes at the end, so that it’s nice and warm, but you could also warm the sauce on the stovetop or in the microwave. this has got to be one of the easiest recipes I make. and one of the tastiest. definitely a great meal for a busy night!
