"We don't keep chilies in our home so I substituted green and red bell peppers and it's amazing. If I'm feeling adventurous I'll mix in green onions. I like that you can hide vegetables in it."

"Best chicken recipe I have ever made!! I suggest breading the chicken. It makes it extra wonderful. It's mine and my husband's fallback dinner when we don't know what else to make. Amazing!"
