Delicious Chicken with Peppers and Onions

Chicken with Peppers and Onions is one of the most popular recipes in my home. It has a wonderful mix of flavors and textures — savory, tangy, lightly crispy, crunchy — that makes your mouth water!

Chicken is so versatile that one can create endless recipes with it. My version of Chicken with Peppers and Onions is simple, delicious, spicy, and easy to make. This method does not require any frying or searing. The chicken must only bake until golden brown for 45 minutes in the oven after marinating for a few hours.

This recipe was created because I was trying to figure out other ways to cook poultry with my Veggies Hot Pepper Sauce. Just a quick marinate with this sauce and a few other ingredients added, and you have wonderful flavors. The sauce is peppery and has a lot of vinegar. So the more liquid than veggies added, the more vinegar taste you will have.

The only way to reduce the vinegar taste is to use let marinade when making the sauce. The taste is a little pungent but still quite good if you like vinegar and spicy foods. The sauce is made with a little bit of hot pepper sauce, tomato paste or tomato puree, onions, peppers, water, and butter to give it that buttery taste and silky look.

Here are the ingredients you will need for the Chicken with Peppers and Onions

  • ½ cup sweet red peppers chopped/sliced
  • ½ cup onions sliced
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 4 pieces of chicken legs and thighs cleaned
  • 1 lime/lemon
  • 5 tablespoons veggies, hot pepper sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon low sodium
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

This is a great recipe that’s easy to make, uses common ingredients, and has a nice combination of flavors. The chicken turns out beautifully tender and juicy, with the right amount of texture and saltiness from the other flavors in the mix.

This dish can be enjoyed with white rice or any other grains you prefer or with root vegetables. I like to enjoy this dish with a side of white or brown rice.
