    I made both these recipes last night & they were good! The chicken calls for A LOT of different peppers & it is spicy (which is a good thing ).

    Vodka Pepper Chicken

    kenRecipe courtesy Douglas Wede (Calling All Cooks - FoodTV)

    3 tablespoons black pepper
    3 tablespoons white pepper
    3 tablespoons red pepper
    3 tablespoons cayenne pepper
    3 tablespoons lemon pepper
    4 (8 to 10-ounce) boneless skinless chicken breasts, whole
    2 tablespoons butter
    4 to 5 green onions, white and green parts, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/4 cup vodka
    1 (16-ounce can) diced tomatoes with juice
    1 cup sliced black olives, drained
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 teaspoon dried oregano

    Serving suggestions: Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes (recipe follows)

    Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
    Mix black, white, red, and lemon pepper together in a pie dish. Rinse chicken and roll while still moist in pepper mixture to coat both sides of breast. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat and then add chicken, onions, and garlic. Brown the chicken on both sides.

    Add vodka and let cook until chicken is cooked through, approximately 8 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet, place on a lined pan, and keep warm in preheated oven. Add tomatoes, olives, Worcestershire, and oregano to the sauce and mix ingredients well with a wooden spoon. Let simmer for 3 to 5 minutes. Return chicken to the skillet and cook until the tomatoes break down and make a sauce, about 15 minutes.

    Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes

    6 large potatoes, peeled and quartered
    1 to 2 cups sour cream
    1 (8-ounce package) cream cheese (room temperature)
    1/2 cup milk
    1/4 cup fresh chopped chives
    2 cloves garlic, minced

    Place the cut potatoes in a large stockpot, cover with cold water, and add some salt. Bring to a boil, then simmer until tender when pierced with a fork, approximately 30 minutes.
    Drain well in a colander; place into a bowl for mashing. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher and add sour cream, cream cheese, milk, chives, and garlic; mix well. Serve warm.
