Ohhhhh the colors in this dish make me weak in the knees. I had an extra chicken breast (that was already cooked!) so this rainbow of flavor and vitamins only took me 15 minutes to make… and about 30 seconds to inhale.
I would highly recommend trying to find thai basil for this recipe because it has subtle hints of mint and licorice to it, but regular basil will do just fine.
Piperáde is a style of cuisine typical of the Basque Country and its staple ingredients of onions, green peppers and tomatoes are said to mimic the red, green and white colors of the Basque Flag. There are a number of ways to interpret this style and combine the ingredients to make a variety of dishes. I decided to play around and go the visual appealing route of thinly sliced peppers served underneath a sexy poached egg.
Can you tell that I like to eat food that is pretty?
