Easiest chicken dish you've probably ever made
This dish is perfect for those cooler days that pop up unexpectedly in the middle of warm weather. You are hunkered down with ice cream and watermelons and then the mercury drops leaving you craving some warm food. Pepper comes quickly to the rescue and nothing carries pepper to advantage as chicken does.

Ingredients for Pepper Chicken


Pepper Chicken is easy to prepare and can be marinated and left in the fridge for easy cooking when emergency hits. It calls for simple ingredients that are probably just lying around in the pantry.
