Basque Chicken Recipe
Here is a very simple recipe for Basque chicken. It is perfect to fix when you have fresh bell peppers on hand. It makes a lot of wonderful sauce, so try serving it over rice. Or, even more simply, it can be served with a crusty loaf of fresh French bread.
The Basque Region
This recipe comes from the Basque region, which is located in the southwest of France and extends into Spain. The region includes the western part of the Pyrenees as well as the coast along the Bay of Biscay, which looks out on to the Atlantic ocean. It is both a mountainous and coastal region.

Preparation Time: 1 hour
The Basque region has its own history and cooking traditions that are somewhat distinct from the rest of France. It features lots of seafood (squid in its own ink is a popular delicacy), garlic, and olive oil and tends to be a bit spicier than most French cooking. As with all good French cooking, the emphasis is always on quality, fresh ingredients.
Bell peppers are popular as well in Basque cooking, as in this French Chicken Recipes recipe. I like to use a variety of different colored bell peppers for a pretty effect, but choose whatever suits your taste and is available.
