Chicken in Green Pepper Sauce

Loved the combination of chicken and green pepper…

One veggie that’s always found in my refrigerator is green pepper, my refrigerator looks complete with this particular veggie. As I love to add green pepper to many of the dishes like stir fries, Indo Chinese dishes or while roasting veggies. The other day, I combined the cooked chicken with green pepper sauce, it tasted really different and had an intense flavor of green pepper. If you are someone who loves green pepper you are going to embrace this dish.
