Caramelized Peppers, Tomatoes and Capers are a savory topping for these tender chicken thighs.
Ingredients
  • 1 pack of boneless, skinless chicken thighs (4-6)
  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 Tb butter
  • 2 Tb olive oil
  • kosher salt + pepper to taste
  • 3 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 3 oz prosciutto
  • ½ cup white wine
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 Tb fresh oregano
  • 1 Tb fresh thyme
  • 1 Tb fresh parsley
  • handful of capers
Instructions
  1. Season chicken thighs with kosher salt and pepper.
  2. In a cast iron skillet or heavy casserole dish, saute chicken thighs in olive oil on both sides until slightly browned, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove and set aside.
  3. Add butter and sliced bell pepper and saute on low/medium heat for 20-30 minutes until soft and caramelized. Keep the heat low and stir them to avoid sticking or burning to bottom of skillet.
  4. Add garlic and prosciutto and continue to saute for 3 more minutes until prosciutto gets a little crispy.
  5. Scrape up any crusty goodness in the skillet and add canned tomatoes, wine, chicken stock, oregano and thyme and bring to a boil.
  6. Add chicken back to the pot, cover and turn down heat to simmer for 25-30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
  7. Garnish with parsley and a handful of capers before serving. (*Tip-- saute capers for 1 minute in a hot skillet before adding to finished chicken dish. This brings down the "brininess" of the capers and hardens them slightly so they have a light crunch.)
