Colorful Chicken Pasta Recipe

Colorful Chicken Pasta Recipe

I'm tired at the end of the workday, so fast meals are always appreciated. I came up with this pasta dish one night using ingredients we happened to have on hand. I knew it was a success when my husband, who doesn't even like chicken, couldn't stop eating it!
