Day 21 → A recipe

Okay, this is my favourite thing to make in the world. It’s super easy and super delicious and everyone should make it. I think, in the book where the recipe came from, it’s called “bell pepper stir fry.” But honestly that’s very boring and doesn’t sound too delicious, does it? So I call it Chicken Wonderful.

You need:

  • 1 c. of chicken broth
  • 2 tbs. tomato paste
  • 2 tbs. flour
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • 1 medium dill pickle
  • some curly noodles (really, this depends on how much you like)
  • 1 medium white onion
  • 1 medium red bell pepper
  • 1 medium green bell pepper
  • sliced white mushrooms
  • 1 medium/large boneless, skinless chicken breast

You do:

In a bowl mix together broth, paste, flour and seasonings – set aside. Dice the pickle – set aside. Cut the onion and peppers into good size chunks. This is when I boil water for the noodles, add those when it’s really going. Cut your chicken into pieces. Over medium-high heat, saute the peppers and onion  in olive oil for a few minutes before adding the mushrooms. Cover for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, and cook all your veggies until they’re softened to your liking.

Remove the veggies from the pan and set aside. Cook your chicken over the same heat in some olive oil – season with pepper otherwise your girlfriend will yell at you for never using pepper. When the chicken is done, push to the edge of the pan – stir the tomato-paprika sauce and add to the center of the pan. Let it cook while stirring and the sauce will thicken. Add the veggies back to the pan as well as the pickle. Mix everything all together and give it a minute to heat everything. Serve on a bed of noodles.

Seriously guys, this is the best meal ever. It’s so easy and yet so very delicious. Even though it might sound kinda weird to put a pickle in, don’t even think about leaving it out because it is awesome. If you’re vegetarian I suppose you could substitute tofu for chicken. Kristi wants to try this but we haven’t yet, so if you try it with tofu, let me know how that worked. 🙂
