I am always on the look out for quick and easy recipes that help me get dinner on the table fast. This easy red pepper chicken recipe does just that. You can make it very simply by seasoning the chicken and cooking it in a pan. This recipe is great for picky eaters too because you can control the amount of seasoning on each chicken piece. My kids prefer a bit less seasoning on their chicken and with recipes like this that is simple. If you want to take this recipe to the next level, you can also make a sauce with a bit of cream cheese, heavy cream and bacon and top everything with it. It isn’t as healthy but it sure is yummy! You really can’t go wrong with heavy cream and bacon. Mmmmm.
