Chicken Saute with Peach and Sweet Pepper

Spread the love

One of my new favorite easy dinners. It really has such an amazing flavor combination with the fresh peaches, fresh basil, ginger and oregano. All in only 20 minutes, which makes this dish perfect for school nights! Just add some rice or quinoa and you’re done!

  • 1 small sweet pepper
  • 1 small onion, preferably red
