Vegetable Chicken Recipe

The original recipe for this dish only called for vegetables, but I eventually added the chicken to make it a mouthwatering main meal.

  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 3 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1. In an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish, place the chicken, celery, green beans, carrots and onion.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the zucchini, tomatoes, tapioca, sugar, salt if desired and pepper. Pour over chicken and vegetables.
