Cubes of chicken and chunks of smoked turkey kielbasa, plus plenty of herbs and veggies, make this a hearty stir-fry. I sometimes top off servings with shredded mozzarella cheese and minced basil and parsley. —Sharon Clemens of Groveland, Illinois

MY REVIEW

This was so good!!!! I'm always looking for healthy things to make with fresh ingredients and a lot of flavor. This surpassed my expectations! I didn't change a thing. Served over organic wheat spaghetti and it was amazing. Thank you for the great recipe!! :)

I admit that when I started preparing this recipe, I was afraid that my family wouldn't like it because of all the bell peppers. I also finely chopped them all up, making it seem as if there were more peppers then there really were. I was shocked when my 11 y/o ate his entire plate and even my 2 y/o twins ate theirs! My husband raved about it! It had great flavor, and I loved the fact that the kids were getting plenty of veggies! Next time, I will serve over rice. Thank you for a great recipe!
