Brown the second side and then transfer the chicken to a bowl. Add the garlic and onion and saute until tender and starting to brown.

Add the bell peppers and continue sauteing until the peppers are bright in color and beginning to soften.

Add the paprika and saute until very fragrant. Return the chicken to the pan along with the stewed tomatoes, salt and tomato paste.

Simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the bell peppers are tender. Taste, and add more salt if needed. Garnish with chopped parsley.
