Chicken & Peppers Goulash

IMG_4267

Dining with Dani should really be called “The Lazy Chef”. It’s not that I am a lazy person, per say, it’s just that when I really hate having to measure things out. So when I found this recipe at Abbe’s Cooking Antics and realized it used the metric system because she lives in the UK, I just used the same ingredients and put however much I wanted into the dish so I didn’t have to convert it.

Really.

I’m that lazy.

I also don’t really know much about goulash except that it’s usually a stew made with beef and potatoes. I only know this because my friend got mad when she requested this be made for dinner and this is the recipe I came up with. But….this  recipe is low cal and includes tons of veggies. Why would you want fatty red meat and starch when you could have a beautiful rainbow of veggies like this?
