- Heat a large frying pan, preferably non-stick, over medium-high. Add 1 tsp oil, then peppers. Stir-fry until peppers soften, about 2 min. Remove from pan. Add 1 tbsp oil to pan, then chicken. Cook until lightly golden, 3 to 4 min per side. Transfer to a plate. Do not crowd pan. Work in batches if necessary.
- Whisk remaining 2 tsp oil with Dijon, lemon juice and zest in a large bowl. Stir in peppers and mint until combined. Set aside.
- Return chicken and juices to pan. Add 1/2 cup water. With a wooden spoon, scrape up and stir in any brown bits from pan bottom. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer until chicken feels springy when pressed, 4 to 6 min. Transfer chicken to a platter and keep warm. Increase heat to high. Boil sauce until reduced, about 5 min. Pour sauce over chicken. Serve with salsa and French fries.
