There are three main elements to Chinese cooking: color, aroma, and taste, or in Chinese 色香味.

Color is very important as food is supposed to appeal visually to the eyes, and hence stimulates one’s appetite.

When I was making this bell pepper chicken, I made sure that I incorporated the element of color into this dish, and used both green and red bell peppers to accompany the chicken meat to bring out the beautiful color of the dish.

Anyway, I often make bell pepper chicken for my family.

The reason is simple: it is bursting with the aroma and peppery flavor of the bell peppers and the light sauce pairs well with the chicken (click for more recipes using chicken).

I also like to add some fresh button mushrooms for an extra layer of taste to this recipe.
