Pepper chicken smothered with caramelized onion and green celery leaves! Yummy!! This is one of those recipes that get better every time I make it. I don’t usually add caramelized onion to my pepper chicken, but this time I did and it gave it that extra zip that turned from yummy to WOW! I have a magic ingredient that makes my pepper chicken easy and loaded with flavor. I use McCormick’s Grill mates Steak seasoning. It is chock full of cracked pepper and other ingredients which add so many flavors to any dish. The texture of the seasoning itself is all coarse and crumbly and just a whiff can send my senses soaring. I have not been paid by the McCormick company to say this but I really love this product. I had onions lying around so as the chicken cooked I caramelized them in another pan and gently folded them in at the end and the pepper chicken came alive. When you caramelize onion it brings out the intense onion flavor! I used some celery tops to add some color to the dish but it added some flavor too. All in all, an easy to make dish I am sure will become a family favorite!! Look at all that peppery goodness!
Chicken is a good source of lean protein, iron, B vitamins and helps build immune function. Onion is known for its anti-cancer properties, so adding a lot of it to any dish is protective. Additional spices like pepper and paprika increase the anti-inflammatory quality of this dish! Perfect for when you have a cold!
