A finalist in the 2012 Just BARE® Just 5 Cooking Challenge, this recipe comes from Debbie R. of Clearwater, FL. Greek in inspiration, the chunky sauce topping this chicken makes good use of jarred roasted bell peppers, salty feta cheese, and briny olives.


  1. Place red peppers in blender container; process until smooth. Set aside.

  2. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, or until golden brown and no longer pink in center. Cook to internal temp of 165°F. Remove from skillet; keep warm.

  3. Reduce heat under skillet to medium-low; stir in puréed red peppers and olives. Cook and stir about 1 minute or until heated through.

  4. Serve chicken topped with red pepper sauce, cheese, and basil.
