WHAT ARE BELL PEPPERS?

Once you’ve heard of peppers, you might instantly think of those hot red peppers with extreme levels of spicyness. But did you know that there is a type of pepper which is suitable for those who doesnt like too much spice? And surpisingly, this pepper has a Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) of zero!

Bell pepper is a type of pepper which is sweet rather than spicy. They are related to the jalapenos, but think of them as cousins rather than siblings. Tomatoes and breadfruit are some which can also be considered as its cousins. They are fresh, sweet and crunchy!

Another exciting thing about bell peppers is that they come in different colors– green, red and yellow. Most of the time, the red and green ones are available in the markets.

With its subtle fresh taste and crunch, bell peppers are used in different dishes like afritada, picadillo, escabeche, chopseuy and many more. For this recipe, lets give the spotlight to the bell peppers which deserves its own recognition.

I still can’t decide which among the colors is my favorite one, and I try not to be biased and use different colors whenever I can. If you have been an avid fan of my recipes, you already have an idea how much I love bell peppers.

For me, bell peppers are like onions, in a sense that you can safely put it in any dish. I somehow think it should also be an automatic aromatics! Bell peppers do not add too much strong flavors but would definitely highlight the colorful dish and give an extra crunch and freshness. Aside from being an ingredient, you can also use chopped bell peppers as a garnish! That’s an instant 3 colors to your dish!

My love for bell peppers started when my lolo made some picadillo and added a lot of bell peppers. My lolo was the one who taught me that bell peppers are not spicy. He made sure to cook them nicely while maintaining its crunch. It is always me and him who always get our viands first, and we are always nag uunahan among the bell peppers.

HOW TO MAKE Pepper Soy Chicken

Preparing the soy and pepper chicken is super easy and will only take you a few minutes.

Start with mise en place, which means prepare all the ingredients before you start the cooking on the stove. Grab your chicken breast. It is recommended to get the fillet one. If not, remove the breast bones before cutting them. For this recipe, we want to cut the chicken breast into thin strips. You can also cube them if you like. Our goal is for them to be medium in size to cook well and soak all the flavors in the sauce for later.

Before anything else, marinate the chicken first. I used the basic soy sauce and liquid seasoning for this one but feel free to add the seasonings of your choice. Ten to fifteen minutes of marinating is already good to go but better if you can rest them in the fridge overnight.

Once the chicken is ready, stir fry them in a pan lightly coated with oil. Be careful not to overcook them as they might become dry and chewy. Just watch them change into a light brown color. Then, saute the aromatics with the chicken. If you have a small pan, you can transfer the chicken onto a plate, saute the aromatics, and the put the chicken back to the pan.

Add your choice of seasonings. Since the chicken is already marinated, I only added a small amount of oyster sauce and sugar. Adjust the taste depending on your preference.

Lastly, add the red and green bell peppers. If you had been an avid fan of my recipes, you already know how much I love bell peppers. For a more colorful dish, I highly recommend to use both red and green bell peppers. Adding them will surely give a freshness crunch to the dish. More textures, more fun to eat!

The soy and pepper chicken is ready to be devoured. The thin and small cuts of the ingredients make it a nice choice for rice topper. Grab your big bowl of hot steaming rice and enjoy this dish anytime of the day! If eaten for breakfast, make sure to fry an egg! Yum!
