  • 2 tsp butter

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

  • 1 red bell pepper

  • 1/3 cup apple juice, or chicken broth

  • Melt butter in a large, wide frying pan, preferably non-stick, set over medium heat. When hot, add chicken and cook until golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Meanwhile, slice peppers into strips. Slice zucchini in half lengthwise, then into thin pieces.

  • When chicken is golden, add juice, Dijon, honey and cayenne. Stir until mixed. Scatter peppers and zucchini over chicken. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring vegetables and turning chicken occasionally, until chicken feels springy when pressed, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in sour cream. Wonderful over rice.
