Hmmm. Another red and green, Christmassy coloured dish, like that Shrimp Fra Diavolo I made a few weeks ago. All those holiday ads must be having a subliminal effect on me.
I got this Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Chicken recipe from Yummly, an interesting all-purpose kitchen site with 20 million registered users. It was an simple one, with only nine ingredients.
The red and green accents came from roasted red peppers and chopped basil. I made the sauce in the frying pan, with onions, garlic, crushed red pepper, cream cheese, and chicken broth.
This was the easiest dish I’ve made in quite a while. It tasted fine, but it didn’t have enough heat. I think I should have doubled up on the crushed red pepper.
★ Disaster. Inedible. Poisoned the cat.
★★ OK, but once is enough.
★★★ Mixed results. Something went wrong, but might try this again.
★★★★ Good, but lacks that special something.
★★★★★ Excellent. Goes into my “This is a winner” file.
