Chicken with Garlic-Pepper Sauce

The sauce, called sofrito, is used in many Latin American recipes as a seasoning base; it can even replace salsa as a dip for chips.

  • prep: 15 mins
    total time: 20 mins
  • servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 cup thawed Garlic-Pepper Sauce
  • Rice and green salad (optional)

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Cook chicken until lightly browned on the first side, about 5 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Turn chicken; add Garlic-Pepper Sauce and 2 tablespoons water. Bring to a simmer. Cover, and cook until chicken is opaque throughout, 8 to 10 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Divide chicken among four plates. Season sauce with salt and pepper; spoon over chicken. Serve with rice and salad, if desired.
