  4. Keep warm until ready to use.
Roasted Peppers
  1. While the chicken is marinating, preheat a toaster oven to 180ºC (350ºF). Drizzle whole peppers with olive oil and place in the toaster oven. Roast peppers for 30 to 40 minutes, or until peppers are nicely roasted and skin has separated from the flesh. Remove roasted peppers from toaster oven and immediately transfer to a plastic bag and seal. Allow peppers to cool in bag.
