Chicken breast with peppers recipe

Exploring the versatility of chicken

Chicken, with its tender and tasty meat, is one of the most versatile and loved ingredients in the kitchen. The culinary possibilities offered by chicken breast are practically endless, and it is precisely this versatility that makes it an ideal choice for many recipes, both traditional and creative.

In this article, we will embark on a tasty culinary adventure by exploring a recipe, which has numerous variations based on the region we are in, and which marries the delicacy of chicken breast with the liveliness of peppers: chicken breast with peppers.

Chicken breast: a versatile option

Chicken breast is a lean, protein-rich part of the animal, and is widely prized for its versatility. This meat lends itself well to a wide range of preparations, from summer barbecues to winter stews.

Its ability to absorb aromas and flavors makes it an excellent base for a variety of dishes, and it can be combined with sauces, spices and herbs to create unique flavors. If you are looking for a meat that adapts to healthy but creative cuisine, chicken breast is the ideal choice.

Variations of pan-fried chicken with peppers

In addition to chicken breast, we can also use other parts and create a tasty and waste-free dish. Let's see some variations:

  • Chicken with Roman peppers : Roman recipes include breast or a whole chicken, tomato pulp, Roman mint, red and yellow peppers.
  • Sicilian-style chicken with peppers : in this recipe, you can use thighs or thighs, red peppers, some add potatoes, capers, black olives, oil, salt and pepper.
  • Tuscan chicken with peppers : in this case, you use a whole chicken cut into pieces, peppers, chopped tomatoes (not in sauce), basil and parsley.

Organic chicken: a quality choice

Before we dive into the pan-fried chicken breast with peppers recipe, it's important to highlight the importance of choosing high-quality ingredients. Organic chicken is an increasingly popular choice among those looking for high-quality, ethically farmed animal products.

In many cases, organic chicken is raised in more natural conditions, has access to outdoor spaces and is fed organic feed. This results in healthier, tastier chicken meat, free of antibiotic or pesticide residues.

At our online butcher shop, we offer a selection of organic chicken meat that will allow you to prepare delicious and nutritious dishes for you and your family. Choosing high-quality ingredients is the first step to ensuring the success of any recipe, and our organic chicken is the perfect base for creating any chicken dish.

Chicken breast with peppers: a quick recipe

Chicken breast with peppers is a dish that embodies the essence of Italian home cooking.

This recipe is a riot of flavors and colors, with the tender chicken breast and crunchy peppers coming together in a delicious combination. Here's what you need to prepare this delicacy (we chose a hybrid but delicious recipe).

Chicken ingredients with peppers in a pan

  • 2 organic chicken breasts
  • 2 peppers (preferably one red and one green for a pop of color)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup peeled tomatoes, chopped
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (to taste for garnish)


Preparing the chicken breasts: Start by preparing the chicken breasts. You can cut them in half to make them thinner and more uniform or into cubes. Season them with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Brown the chicken: In a large nonstick skillet, heat a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and brown on both sides until golden brown and fully cooked. Transfer the breasts to the top of a covered griddle to keep warm while you prepare the sauce.

Making the pepper sauce: In the same pan you cooked the chicken in, add another drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, then add the chopped onion and garlic. Fry until golden brown.

Adding the peppers and tomatoes: Cut the peppers into thin strips and add them to the pan with the onion and garlic. Continue cooking until the peppers are soft and starting to caramelize slightly.

Add the chopped peeled tomatoes and chicken broth. Mix everything well and let it cook over medium-low heat for about 10-15 minutes, until the sauce thickens slightly.

Once the pepper sauce is ready, return the chicken breasts to the pan. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, so that the chicken absorbs the flavors of the sauce.

Before serving, garnish your chicken breast and peppers with chopped fresh parsley for a pop of freshness and color.

This dish is perfect to enjoy hot or cold as a snack at work, perhaps accompanied by a portion of basmati rice or a side dish of grilled vegetables. The contrast between the softness of the chicken breast and the liveliness of the peppers will make every bite an unforgettable culinary experience.
