I have recently discovered mini sweet peppers, a variety of colorful peppers that are petite in size. They come in the gorgeous colors of yellow, orange, red and they look just like green peppers, with seeds inside, but they are not spicy.
They are amazing for stir-fries, just this beautiful Sweet Pepper Chicken.
Sweet Pepper Chicken is absolutely delicious and mouthwatering. Just the colors alone are so inviting and appetizing that you can’t wait to just dig in and enjoy the dish.
The mild tasting mini sweet peppers add a tint of sweetness but the best part is the texture.
Mini sweet peppers are crisp in texture, with a nice bite that is bursting with freshness! When you stir-fry them with chicken and Asian sauces, the interplay of all the ingredients make it one of the most delicious stir-fry dishes ever.
For the sauces, I used a combination of soy sauce, oyster sauce and Thai sweet chili sauce. You simply can’t go wrong with them.
What I love most about this Asian-inspired Sweet Pepper Chicken is its simplicity. It comes together in less than 20 minutes. It’s so easy!
Serve the chicken with steamed rice or noodles and you will have the most amazing dinner ever!
