Lemony Spanish Pepper Chicken

Lemony Spanish Pepper Chicken

To make quick work of seeding a bell pepper, try this technique: Set the pepper on your cutting board, stem side up. Slice off the four "sides," which will fall away to leave the stem, membranes, and seeds standing. Discard stem, membranes, and seeds, and cut the pepper pieces into strips.
