Another one pot meal I serve over rice. Once again I double the vegies and liquid making more for the rice. Nice combination of flavors. Enjoy!

Excellent! Half the recipe was 3 chicken breasts, which I boned and added back right before serving. 3 cups of cooked rice was the perfect amount with our half recipe. Used a yellow squash and about half the Can. bacon called for (so expensive!), so we upped the peppers a tad. Really different and delicious!
