Number of Servings: 8


    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    3 bell peppers - I use multi colored - cut into strips
    1 large onion - cut into strips
    5-6 cloves of garlic
    juice of 5-6 lemons
    2 tbsp olive oil
    1-2 cans stewed tomatoes - smash these up a bit
    cooked rice of your choice


Chop chicken into strips or bite size pieces and marinate in the olive oil and lemon juice. You can also add a little vinegar if you like more zing and you can decrease the amount of lemon if you want a more mellow flavor. I like to season with summer savory and a little salt and pepper. Marinate as long as you like but I try to let it go for at least 3 hours to tenderize the meat.

When ready to cook:
spray skillet with pam and cook your onions and garlic until they wilt.

Add your chicken, including the marinade, and cook on high heat until the chicken in nearly cooked through.

Add your pepper strips and your stewed tomatoes, cover and cook until your veggies soften.

Serve over rice - in this recipe, the calories are calculated with white rice at 1/2 cup per serving.
