My Recipes: Roasted Red Pepper & Garlic Chicken

I made up this recipe a few weeks ago and loved it. Plus it's simple... my everyday cooking mantra. I love garlic, I swear I could put it on just about anything. I especially love garlic when it's mixed with something fairly spicy. Nom nom nom.

We had ordered a boatload of Chinese food the day before and so I had all this leftover steamed rice and some green and red bell peppers in a spicy black bean sauce. So it made it pretty easy to piece together a chicken dish. I decided to really go hot, so I chopped up some marinaded pickled green peppers and a couple breasts of chicken and tossed them with chopped garlic, red chillies and some chili paste.

This stuff is the bomb:

I decided to cook it all in the oven, so it'd be a bit slower cook time and help the chicken absorb the flavors and stay nice and moist. I guess it was probably 15-20 min. around 400-425. (My oven is in celsius and I never pay attention to a particular temperature unless I'm baking. I just crank it up and keep an eye on the food inside!)

Once the chicken was nicely cooked, I re-heated the rice and made a small heap of it on the plate, topping it with the chicken and peppers, being sure to drizzle some of the juices on there as well. I was craving veggies, so I loaded up on carrots, broccoli and asparagus as our sides and voila! A healthy little 15-minute meal full of flavor.


  1. Hard to believe you made that gorgeous dish in 15 minutes!!! Way to go! I have some chicken and rice leftovers (Rice a Roni) that I will spice up and serve for lunch! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Where did you get the Very Lazy products? :)

    1. Hi! I believe they came from the HEB grocery stores that is in the Houston/South Texas area

  3. Oh, okay. Thanks!! We're in North Dallas, my best bet will probably be to check Central Market.
