Chicken is such a versatile meat that one can create endless recipes with it. My version, Gemma’s Chicken with Peppers and Onions, is simple, delicious, spicy and easy to make. This method does not require any frying or searing. The chicken only needs to 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 other types of ways to cook poultry with my Veggies Hot Pepper Sauce. Just a quick marinate with this sauce and 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 a made with a little bit of the hot pepper sauce, tomato paste or tomato puree, onions, peppers, water, and butter to give it that buttery taste and silky look.
This dish can be enjoyed with rice white or any other grains you prefer or with root vegetables. I like to enjoy this dish with a side of white or brown rice.
