    This was delicious! The chicken was very moist and the peppers were nice and crisp. A big hit :) - 5/11/10

    Make sure your chicken isn't too thick. Also, I had to use more than 2 TB of olive oil. - 10/15/09

    Very, very good. I had to use cider vinegar in a pinch, but it still came out great. With a whole wheat pita and a glass of wine, it was downright luxurious. - 5/16/07

    This is a colorful, healthy main dish. I used a white balsamic vinegar, which has a more delicate taste. Hubby and Mom-In-Law sang praises. - 4/15/07
