Makes 4 servings


  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Flour, about 1 cup, on a flat plate
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic or red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 3 cups bell peppers (a mixture of red, green and yellow), cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 cup mushrooms, thinly sliced


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a saute pan large enough to hold all of the ingredients, heat the oil over medium heat.

Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper to taste and dredge them in the flour, shaking off any excess. Add them to the hot oil and cook the chicken on all sides until golden in color and fully cooked. Remove the cooked chicken to a strainer set over a bowl and let the oil drain off.

Pour any excess oil out of the pan, return the pan to the heat and add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Slowly add the vinegar and cook for 30 seconds. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Add the peppers and mushrooms and cook, stirring from time to time for 3 minutes. Place the chicken back into the pan.

Put the pan into the preheated oven for 5 minutes and serve.
