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.

Ingredients

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

Directions

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.

  1. Wonderful recipe, Lynz. The sauce sounds – and looks – delicious. I’ve a feeling that what you’ve called garbanzo beans are what we call chickpeas here. I’ll have to look that up.

  29. I am sooo making this dish! I love the ingredients and can’t wait to eat it. (I’ve already pinned it.) I’m enjoying reading about your life – and looking through your delicious recipes so much. I feel like I’ve made a lovely new friend. I just finished reading your post “New School’ – it was excellently written and so interesting. I thought I was resilient – but you are BIG TIME RESILIENT. You’re my hero Lynz!!

      • I lost my husband to cancer eight years ago. He was an International Banker – a French Canadian who lived in the States when I met him. We were both 18. The young sure think anything is doable – don’t they. And didn’t we – and we did it!! I always believed the two of us achieved so much more together than we would’ve separately. (I thought he was a ‘pain-in-the-patoot’ but reading about your life (and ‘the ever-changing rules’..). makes me feel that he wasn’t all that bad !)

        • wow I didn’t know that! Sorry for your loss. I thought at the time it was just fine, I was a trouble maker if I dared step out of line,according to him, until I hit 40! I then saw things as they were! I raised my kids to be free thinking and creative! I love differences and being unique.Well once they started getting older they did not care for his rules and thought it was all quite ridiculous! so they were the ones to really stand up and say NOOOOO
