  2. Add the uncooked chicken (or steak) to this marinade...either in a glass bowl or in a gallon sized ziplock plastic bag. Let the meat marinate for a minimum of one hour up to 4 hours in the refrigerator.

  3. Strain marinated chicken and discard the liquid marinade.

  5. On a rimmed baking sheet toss together the bell pepper and the onions with olive oil until coated.

  6. Add the marinated chicken (or steak). Toss to separate and spread it out mixed with the peppers and onions. Bake for 30 minutes. Half way through the bake time, take the pan out of the oven and flip all the pieces of chicken over to ensure even baking on both sides.
