Chicken With Potatoes, Peppers and Onions

Chicken With Potatoes, Peppers and OnionsBy IFBB Pro Carlo Filippone

Let’s talk chicken! An obvious staple in our weight training diet, and by far one of the most important, chicken can be boring. It can be bland and yes, at times, it may make you wanna just —-! That’s why I’m here. Now I can come up with thousands of different ways to make chicken, having grown up in an Italian household— however, there weren’t many weeks that passed where mom didn’t make a sausage, pepper and onion type dish. Whether it was a sandwich or by itself, I loved it! It inspired me to create my Chicken With Potatoes, Peppers and Onions!
