What's For Dinner: Garden Chicken

One of the best things about summer is being able to cook straight out of the garden.

I came home yesterday, picked a couple of Santa Fe peppers, a couple of Anaheim peppers, a couple of green sweet Chilean peppers and one red sweet Chilean pepper.

I chopped them, and added them to my saute pan.  I then added two diced tomatoes and some basil.

In another pan, I sauteed about a pound of chicken thighs.  Once the chicken was cooked through and the vegetables were soft, I added the vegetables to the chicken, and cooked for another 5 minutes or so.

In about 20 minutes, I went from this:

Tasty and fresh from the garden!  Love it!  What's on your table tonight?

  1. We're having a Hamburger Cabbage Casserole. I'm swimming in cabbage here, so I made a huge pot of Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage for the freezer, and still have green cabbages to use up. Luckily Mr. Granny loves the casserole. Some yeast dough left over from yesterday will make a small baguette to serve with it, and sliced tomatoes (garden), carrot sticks (garden) and olives will finish it off.
