Reviews forChicken Veggie Skillet
"When I saw this , I thought it would be a good way to use up the last of some leftover turkey, so I used that instead of the chicken. I also used the end of the frozen asparagus from last years garden. It was really tasty! I will definitely make this again when I have more fresh in the garden."
"Didn't think this had much flavor. Maybe it was because I also used a non-stick pan. Maybe next time I would add some fresh thyme with the mushrooms and finish the dish with some fresh parsley."
