Expert Tips

Sweet bell peppers are green until they mature. Red bell peppers are fully ripened green bell peppers. Bell peppers are perfect for roasting because they contain lots of moisture; roasting enhances their sweet flavors.

One cut-up frying chicken can be used in place of the chicken breast halves.

Purchase focaccia or an Italian pizza crust to top and serve with this easy supper dish. Sprinkle the surface of the bread with crumbled goat cheese and your favorite fresh or dried herbs. Drizzle a little olive oil over the cheese and herbs. Heat the bread in a 350°F. oven until warm and slightly crisp, 10 to 15 minutes.
