BASQUE CHICKEN

  • 4 slices cooked Canadian-style bacon, crumbled
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, seeded and sliced into thin strips
  • 1 medium yellow pepper, seeded and sliced into thin strips
  • 3 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup wine, white
  • 14 1/2 oz canned diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste
  • 2 cup cooked white rice
Coat a Dutch oven with cooking spray. Cook chicken over medium-high heat until no longer pink in center, about 4 minutes. Remove and set aside.

Reduce heat to medium. Add onions and peppers; cook until soft, 5 to 7 minutes, stirring

frequently. If necessary, add water to pot to keep onions from burning. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more.

Add wine, tomatoes, thyme and reserved bacon and chicken. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Season to taste. Serve over the white rice.

Serves 4, 7 POINTS per serving

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
