Here is my healthy version on how to make Chicken Guisantes with a twist. Made with boneless chicken breast, guisantes or green peas, bell pepper and spiced up with Spanish sweet paprika from Nanay's Best Home of Quality Spices. Sweet Paprika has a sweet pepper flavor and less intense compare to other kind of paprika. This spice adds vibrant color to any dish and can also be sprinkled over potato salad or deviled eggs.
This Chicken Guisantes is an ideal recipe when you want to eat something quick and simple, and a great dish for any occasion. It is easy to make, healthy and full of flavours. This Filipino guisantes dish is typically made with chunks of pork. You can also use boneless chicken thighs instead. Chicken thighs are fattier than the breasts and are also moister in comparison but both are good sources of protein. If you are watching your fat intake, chicken breast is a great option. They are very low in fat and high in protein.
