How to make Roasted Red Pepper Chicken

This recipe looks fancy but it is so easy to make.

  • Melt Butter – In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. You can also use olive oil.
  • Cook Chicken – Add the chicken, season with the salt and pepper and brown on both sides. We recommend cooking chicken for 4-6 minutes on each side.
  • When Chicken is cooked – When those are brown on both sides, remove from the pan and place chicken on a separate plate.

  • Add in Ingredients – Add the garlic, red peppers and broth to the pan. Sauté on medium heat until the peppers are tender (approximately 5-6 minutes).
  • Stir in Heavy Whipping Cream – Then stir in the heavy whipping cream and parmesan cheese. Reduce the heat to low to simmer. Whisk and cook until the cheese is melted and combined (2-3 minutes).
  • Place Chicken back in pan – Add the chicken to the pan in with the roasted red pepper sauce, simmer for a few minutes to bring the chicken back to a warm temperature.
  • Serve and Enjoy – Then remove from heat and enjoy!

How long do I cook Chicken in a Skillet?

When cooking the chicken in the skillet, we like to use a iron skillet. Cook chicken in the iron skillet over medium heat about 4 to 6 minutes on each side. Use a meat thermometer to make sure your chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

We always use a meat thermometer to ensure the chicken is done before serving.

Variations:

  • Cream Cheese – You can use cream cheese instead of heavy whipping cream.
  • Add in Spice – If you want it a little spicier, you can add in some crushed red pepper flakes.
  • Lemon Juice – Before serving, squeeze lemon juice over the top.

What to serve with Roasted Red Pepper Chicken?

  • Serve over Spinach – Our favorite way to enjoy this chicken is over a bed of fresh spinach. It goes perfectly with this chicken. Since the red pepper sauce is so rich and creamy, the lightness of the spinach really balance the meal out. It is an amazing combination.
  • Add a Garden Salad – You could easily use mixed greens or what you have on hand. It really is so tasty with very little work.
  • Pasta or Potatoes – If you are not following a low carb diet, you can serve this with pasta, potatoes or rice.
  • Low Carb Option – Make cauliflower rice or zoodles and for an easy keto option.

How to store leftovers:

We love having leftovers with this meal. The creamy sauce really marinates in the chicken overnight making it so delicious the next day.

It is perfect to place in individual containers in the refrigerator. It will stay good for about to 3 to 4 days. This makes a perfect lunch for my husband and I the next day. Which saves us time and money.

Store the leftover chicken in an air tight container for up to 5 days. 
Make sure to use the grated parmesan cheese instead of shredded as it melts more evenly.  If your sauce is too thick, add more chicken broth until it’s the consistency that you prefer.

  1. Hi, the instructions say to use the rest of the ingredients but also to use the Parmesan to top it. I added it to the chicken and sauce and it’s a globulated mess stuck together with cheese that won’t thicken. I’ve made lots of Alfredo so am a bit lost! Should I have made the sauce with the chicken out of the pan?

  2. 5 stars
    Made this tonight, and the entire family was delighted! This will definitely make it into the rotation!
