I had boiled chicken breasts the night before just to have something quick on hand, so when I came home tonight after work I thought " What can I do with these?" I just started putting some spices I had in the cabinet with some vegetables I had laying around the fridge and...POOF...something tasty to eat. Give it a try. Have fun with the recipe...If you don't have something on hand just omit it or use some other spice(s). You could add it with some pasta or even steamed rice to complete the meal. For added fiber you can add a can of your favorite beans.
