Chicken in Cilantro Sauce

Looking for a way to use  cilantro, I discovered this simple, tasty recipe.

About 1 1/2 lbs. chicken pieces, skinned
1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
3/4 to 1 cup fresh cilantro
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 clove garlic or about 2 tsps chopped garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1 bell pepper

What to Do
Place chicken in baking dish. In blender, mix tomato sauce, salt and pepper, cilantro, onion, and garlic. Leave it a little chunky.  Pour over chicken and top with green bell pepper rings. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. I sprinkled cheese over the top for the last 10 minutes of baking.  This has a fresh taste, and worked well with brown rice cooked in chicken stock.

  1. I reheated it, and there wasn't a lot of sauce so I served it with angel hair pasta. It was even better than the rice!
