Chicken in bell pepper gravy

The weather has stared getting cooler, the sun shine has started getting softer, that means falls  is coming. I’m eager to decorate my home with pumpkins, maple leaves, cornucopia, scarecrows, and many more. But, alas! Still now the end of remodeling  job is far away. My rest of the house is a dumping ground now. 

So, I cannot even imagine to decorate. Not only my house, my garden is also is in a ramshackle condition. In that garden few sunflower was striving hard to  bloom. Until Friday there had been blooming, but Saturday morning I found them in very bad shape, some were broken, some were bended. I couldn’t find the cause of their sorry state. Suddenly, Saturday evening Mr. Man discovered that, little squirrels were climbing the sunflower plants, tearing the flowers, taking them down, and eating the seeds. My poor sunflower plants! No more love for those rodents! Nope!  
Anyway, my whining is over, now is the time for smile, with a healthy and delicious chicken recipe. *smile*

Remodeling is only for the strong. It takes so long and makes such a mess. The chicken breasts look delicious.

Thanks to you sharing your yummy recipe, I AM smiling!! Very nice of you to do that.
I have been through major renovations before. It is just a blur now, but I remember wishing the work would move faster. When it is over, I'm sure you will think it was worth it.
And those squirrels - had that problem, too. I even caught them swinging on my corn stalks!

No way do I care a thing for a squirrel. They tear up terribly. We moved quite a few trees and it took away squirrels with them.
The soop looks so good. Thank you for your recipe. I love this type of comfort food.
Renovation - a headache for sure. I know it will be so nice when it's over.

Krishna, I like the idea of putting cinnamon on your chicken stew...I can already imagine how delicious this recipe is. Thanks for sharing. Hopefully the builders will be finished with their job before the weather turns least by that time, you've got the advantage of a cool weather to do your share of tidying up and all the interior decorating. Just a little more patience:)

Squirrels can be very destructive. I'm sure they enjoyed your sunflowers though.
Hopefully your home will soon be back to normal.
Have a lovely week planning your decorations as I'm sure there is room for one or two :)
