Creamy pepper chicken

I’ve got some awesome news… I got a new job!! πŸ˜€ It’s temporary one for now, as I’m planning on returning to college for my Master’s degree in September, but it’s great, the people are fun and the whole work environment is wonderful. So I’ve been working for the past week, from noon till late in the evening and I just had enough time to prepare something for supper and pop by to check the notifications on my blog. I’m happy to finally be posting a recipe, a dish I first made last summer… oh how I wish it was summer again, I’m actually started a countdown.

A few interesting facts about bell peppers:

  • Bell peppers originated from Mexico, and Central and South America
  • Despite the similarity in name, bell peppers are in no way related to black pepper
  • Aside from the more common green colour, bell peppers also come in red, orange, yellow, white and purple, there are even black and brown bell peppers
  • The bell pepper tops the list of foods with the highest levels of Vitamin C
  • Red bell peppers have more than twice the vitamin C of a green pepper

      1. What a great outlook!
        I try and do one in-country and one-out-of-country vacation every year just so I make sure that I get out and see new things.
        Traveling (for pleasure) is one of my favorite things to do hee-hee πŸ˜€

    I definitely can relate so much to the part, about the countdown to summer, I’m going to start university again this week after a long break and it is going to be hectic! It is almost like this long holiday wasn’t enough… Anyways congratulations on your new job and good luck!

  16. This recipe sounds absolutely amazing. When bell peppers are back in season here (more bitter in the winter due to greenhousing) I will surely be making this. Thanks so much.
