Here's a little known fact about me .... I love gangster/mob movies and tv shows. I can't help it and I'm not even sure why I like them! One thing I notice in almost every one of those movies is, how close the family is and how much time they spend enjoying great food. Truthfully, I was always kind of envious of the people in those movies - I wanted those things - not so much the gangster life, but the close family and great Italian food. :)
My oldest son, Elijah, and I have been watching several of these gangster movies lately. Just the other day, we watched "Goodfellas" and I kept thinking to myself that I should make an Italian dish soon. One of these days, I'm going to make Henry Hill's meatballs! I wish I had an Italian grandma to share all of her cooking secrets with me.
Skillet Chicken and Peppers
Yield: 6 servings
1½ cups all-purpose flour
Salt and pepper, to taste
3-4 lbs. chicken pieces
2-3 tbsp. Star Butter Flavored Olive Oil
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 green peppers, seeded and cut into strips
2 red peppers, seeded and cut into strips
1 can (14.5 oz.) petite-diced tomatoes, undrained
½ tsp. Italian seasoning
½ cup red wine or chicken broth
Cooked pasta or rice, for serving
Parmesan cheese, if desired
Combine the flour, salt and pepper in large zip-top bag. Add the chicken pieces to the flour mixture and shake until the chicken is coated. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Brown the chicken on both sides. Remove the chicken to a plate.
In the same skillet, saute the onion, garlic, green peppers and red peppers until the veggies are slightly browned. Add the tomatoes, Italian seasoning and red wine; stir. Add the chicken back into the pan. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat for about 30-45 minutes or until the chicken is tender and the juices run clear. Serve with cooked pasta or rice. Top with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
