"We had this dish tonight and it was delicious. So easy to prepare. I made a couple of minor changes. I cut my chicken breast into strips to cook faster and it did. I also sprinkled them with creole seasoning before sauteing them to give them a little flavor thanks to a reviewer. I used fire roasted tomatoes and brown rice to complete the meal. This recipe is a real winner. Both hubby and I cleaned our plates.

"This was a quick, good dish for a fast dinner. I made my own creole seasoning rather than use the chili powder. The veggies were still crisp tender which is what we like rather than mushy veggies."
