Sounds very good, and the beauty of this is, it is a one pot dish, always a bonus when it comes to clean up. I think this would be a very nice side dish or a light meal with a salad on the side.

This sounds interesting, and is wide open to what you want to fill the peppers with, but the anchovies seem to be the key ingredient here. This is a bit of a rewrite from what I found originally. When I make this, I will edit the recipe even further on my findings. On my to cook list.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180 C, place peppers in a lightly greased with butter baking dish; set aside.
  2. Heat about a tablespoon of the reserved anchovy oil in a large heavy skillet over low heat. Saute onion until translucent, then stir in garlic. Let garlic cook for 2 minutes, then stir in the rice and chicken. Add the anchovies, olives, 1 tablespoon of the reserved anchovy olive oil, black pepper and red pepper. Mix until well blended, removed from heat.
  3. Mound pepper halves with stuffing. Surround peppers with tomato sauce and a small amount of water. Cover with foil.
  4. Bake 45 to 60 minutes, or until peppers are tender. Uncover for the last 15 minutes of baking, and baste occasionally with the sauce. Serve by spooning some sauce on pasta and topping with a pepper half.
Recipe Notes

Two cups of cooked chicken is low cost, maybe about 30 Baht, at the most. The anchovies however, will run about 125 Baht per tin. Use the shortcut to make the tomato sauce from tomato paste for additional savings. For 8 servings, this is about 60 cents per serving, great value.

Lot of room for changes as you see fit. I made this last night on 14 Aug 2016, very nice flavor but nothing to write home about. I made this again on 1 Nov 2016 and modified the recipe to reflect new findings, less oil and used Fettuccine pasta, much much better.

  1. Fettuccine that I buy, and all brands that I have seen here, the pasta is in little spirals in the package. I normally use 2-3 spirals for 2 servings. This is a 250 gram pack that has 6 spirals, this is imported from Italy and is surprisingly low cost. One spiral is about 40 grams.
  2. Cook pasta in a pot of boiling water until just tender, about 5 minutes, drain well, and set aside.
  3. Heat a heavy non-stick skillet over low heat, add the garlic and open the tin of anchovies and dump the contents into the pan, season with black pepper to your liking, use a spatula to break up the anchovies a bit most will basically melt into the olive oil and cook until garlic just begins to color, 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add the pasta and mix to coat the pasta well and heat through, remove from heat. This is 2 spirals of pasta used.
  5. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and grated Parmesan cheese if desired. A a green salad on the side would be good with this.
Recipe Notes

The anchovies cost me 125 Baht per 47 gram tin. For 2 servings, this is about $1.84 per serving. The cost is due to imported anchovies. Overall not a bad price for a once in a while meal.

This recipe screams of changes that you can make to dress this up anyway you wish to fit your taste. Think chopped spring onions, fresh chopped basil, sliced mushrooms such as Shiitake or King Oyster, cubed chicken, Italian sausage, etc.

Instructions
  1. Season the chicken with salt and coarsely ground black pepper. Toss with a little flour. In a pot or large skillet, brown the chicken in batches in a little olive oil. Once the chicken pieces have been browned and cooked through, transfer them into a bowl. Set them aside.
  2. In the same pot or skillet, add a little more olive oil. Saute the garlic over medium heat for about 30-40 seconds, or until fragrant. Add the red pepper and stir to mix. Add mushrooms and the anchovy fillets. Mush the anchovy fillets – they will disappear into the sauce and impart the most amazing savory flavor to the dish!
  3. Return the chicken into the pot or skillet and stir to combine. Transfer all the ingredients from the pot into a bowl. Set this aside.
  4. Add white wine (or replace with the same quantity of chicken stock if you want to omit wine) into the pot. Bring this to a boil. Using your spatula, gently scrape the bottom of the pan to dislodge the brown bits of flavor. Add the additional chicken stock, bring this to a boil then add the pasta. Make sure the pasta is submerged in the liquid, turn the heat to low and cover the pot. The pasta will cook and soften. Stir occasionally and cook until the pasta is done.
  5. Return the ingredients into the pot, add more black pepper if you like, and toss to combine. Sprinkle chopped parsley and serve.
Recipe Notes

Chicken breasts run anywhere from 60 to 75 Baht/kilo. 4 breasts should be less than that. This is about $1 per serving for 4 servings. Very reasonable and inexpensive meal. I need to locate anchovies so I can better price this.
