This recipe is so delectable that I'm often asked to double it when family members visit over the holidays, writes Janet Lebar from her home in Littleton, Colorado. She also suggests preparing it with shrimp for a quick convenient alternative that's also delicious.

"I am a late bloomer when it comes to cooking so I don't deviate to much from recipes. I didn't have chicken so I just used veggies. No fresh tomatoes so used 1/3 can of diced. I added artichoke hearts and fresh spinach. I was mainly using recipe for the sauce. I am my biggest critic and I really enjoyed it. Hubby and 3yr old grandson chowed. Didn't even have left overs. I will def make this again. ~Thank you for sharing!"
