SUMMER RECIPE WAGON: Chicken Breasts with Pepper Sauce  

Bell peppers are a good source of vitamin A which is needed for a healthy skin.  This low calorie dish is as appealing to the eye as it is to the taste.

¼ cup all purpose flour

4 large boneless, skinless chicken-breast halves (about 1 ½ pounds)

¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 cup canned reduced-sodium chicken broth

½ teaspoon dried basil or oregano , crumbled

2 tablespoons dry white wine or water

½ cup diced green bell pepper

1 teaspoon cornstarch

½ cup diced red bell pepper

On

a sheet of wax paper, combine flour and pepper.  Dip chicken breasts in the four mixture until well coated, shaking off the excess.

In

a skillet, warm oil over moderately high heat.  Add the chicken; cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes on each side.  Transfer the chicken to a warm serving platter, cover and keep them warm.

Wipe

out the skillet with paper towels.  Add broth and basil to the skillet; bring the mixture to a boil. Add red and green peppers, and cook for 3 minutes.

Meanwhile

in a cup, combine wine and cornstarch; stir the wine mixture into the broth mixture in the skillet. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Continue cooking until thick, for 2 minutes.  Spoon the sauce over the chicken.  Pack warm in a heated lunch tote for a hot lunch to go.
