Sundried Tomato and Bell Pepper Chicken Bites

Sundried Tomato and Bell Pepper Chicken Bites

If you are looking for a tasty, healthy and quick meal idea, well this recipe is perfect for you! This is a slightly different version of my Mediterranean chicken recipe as it integrate a few sun-dried tomatoes and it is cooked in a pressure cooker.

Pressure cookers are great kitchen tools to use if you need to dramatically reduce cooking time of your foods. I don’t use them very often but every now and then, when I am hungry and it’s getting too late, then I reach out for my Kuhn Rikon and tah dha, dinner is ready in 30 min!

Here is the recipe!

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 1 whole chicken breast, skin on
  • 3 bell peppers (red, yellow and green)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 clove garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. capers
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumb

Wash up your vegetables and herbs
