"Easy one-pot recipe! Added garlic to the chicken and doubled the zucchini. It had too much liquid for my liking, but wasn't a huge problem after letting it sit for a bit."

"Didn't have any onions, so added onion powder and used petite diced tomatoes. It was great! My 4 year old really enjoyed it!"
