Great American Recipes


  • 4 half chicken breasts, boned, skinned, cubed
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml). chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml). garlic powder
  • 3 Tbsp (45 ml). chopped fresh parsley
  • In large skillet, cook bacon over medium high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towel.
  • Discard all but 1 tbsp (15 ml) bacon fat.
  • Rinse and seed peppers. Cut into strips.
  • In skillet with bacon fat, add onion and peppers. Saute over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Add chicken and spices.
  • Cook, stirring, for about 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  • Crumble bacon and sprinkle on top.
  • Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve immediately.
Use chopped cilantro for a different taste in place of parsley. You may add more exotic spices like cumin or mace, if desired. Good served with warm corn tortillas or cooked rice or beans and a green salad for a balanced meal. I also like this recipe with turkey instead of chicken.
