This is will become a family favorite in no time! The pepper and pimiento adds a dash of color and flavor, you'll be glad you kept them in the recipe! OR skip the pimiento and use red pepper instead!

Very good and easy to make! This is definitely a favorite dish for my family!
This was very good! Chopping all the veggies and the chicken took a little time but it wasn't bad at all. I only changed one thing- I sprinkled a little extra cheese on the top- a shredded Mexican blend. My whole family cleaned their plates, YUMMY!! Next time I'll probably add a little extra sauce, but other than that, it's all good-thanks!!!
