Directions

Put the prepared chicken into a resealable bag. In a bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the marinade and pour it into the bag with the chicken. Seal the bag and set it aside.

On a clean cutting board prepare the peppers and onions. In a skillet, heat 1 Tbs. grape seed oil and add in the onions and peppers. Cook over medium-high heat until the peppers are tender and the onions are translucent. Remove the peppers and onions from the skillet, put them in a large bowl, cover, and set aside.

In the same skillet, cook the chicken over medium high heat for 6 minutes, or until cooked through. Return the pepper mixture to the skillet and heat through.
