Chicken and Peppers Skillet

Quick, easy, and bursting with nutrients.
As busy as I am with three under three, it's vitally important to me to prepare healthy foods for my family. But time is quite sparse these days so it has to be quick! I pre-grill or bake chicken at the beginning of the week to use throughout the rest of the week in meals. Makes life easier, for sure!
And for those wondering, I do make red meat, too =) Just not as much as white!
This meal is perfect to serve over rice or in a tortilla wrap!

Chicken and Peppers Skillet

2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded or cubed
2 Roma tomatoes
1 red bell pepper
3 Italian pepperoncinis (I use plain ones, not marinated)
1 hot pepper (I use Chinese purple, but a red pepper would suffice! or leave out of you don't like heat)
1 handful rinsed and minced cilantro
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
 Salt to taste

Saute peppers and tomatoes on medium heat, covered, until tender. (You don't need to use oil or anything as the tomatoes and peppers will sweat and form a juice of their own) Add chicken and cilantro and heat through. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.  Serve over rice with salsa or in a tortilla wrap. Or with chips. Or taco shells. Or whatever else you can imagine up!


  1. I am curious.. Does Craig like all these foods w/ the tomatoes and all? I thought he was Tim's brother? LOL When he would eat at our place (eons ago) he would ask if Tim liked it before he would eat it...

  2. He sure does! He's a changed man ;-) He still doesn't like them raw, but he'll down sauteed onions, peppers, tomatoes no problem now.
