Dinner Recipes Quick Easy Chicken and Peppers Stir Fry - It Is a Keeper

My kids are all involved in swimming so during swim season–which is pretty much year round– I am always looking for quick and easy dinners that I can whip up in no time and are full of flavor. For my family, Chicken and Peppers Stir Fry fits the bill perfectly!

This meal is so simple to make and it is great because I can make it earlier in the day and then just warm it up as needed later–and the longer it sits the better the flavor gets.  Plus it is full of peppers so I don’t have to worry about making a vegetable side dish, it is a  balanced meal in one pot!

This dish is great too because you only have to make it one way but you can make it kid friendly too.  I like to make a large pot of brown rice to serve with the Stir Fry but my kids love to wrap up the chicken and peppers into a corn tortilla and eat it that way–either way it is delicious!

  1. This looks like a great recipe but my wife and I don’t handle peppers very well. If I subbed broccoli florets for the peppers, I think it would work well. Any thoughts on this? If so, how would you suggest I saute and for how long?

    • I’m sure it would be great! I would blanch them for a few minutes before sautéing them. That should make them tender enough.
