Hearty chicken and red sauce
This is a delicious hearty chicken dish that my self proclaimed middle child, loves! I have seen many variations of this recipe and this is mine.
5 chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
1 can garbanzo beans
2 green bell peppers sliced
1 onion chopped
1 -15 ounce can tomato sauce
1 -23 ounce can crushed tomatoes
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
A pinch or Cayenne pepper or 1 tsp. (or amount desired) sriracha sauce
juice of one lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
Chop the thighs into big chunks or you can leave them whole.
Saute chicken in olive oil for a few minutes.
Add bell peppers and onions and continue to saute.
Add tomato sauce and crushed tomatoes, as well as spices. Stir these ingredients until mixed well and let it boil, turn down heat and cover. Let this low boil until chicken is well cooked, for approximately 60 minutes.
Add 1 can of drained garbanzo beans and sriracha sauce, continue simmering.
My kids do not like hot spices so I add a little sriracha but my son who loves
this recipe adds more to his! So, add according to your taste.
Season with salt and pepper.
Add lemon juice and continue to simmer on low. I like to simmer to get the flavors
combined and until chicken is well cooked and tender.
