This is a really lovely springtime meal. I prefer to use rosemary on its own rather than herbes de provence. This is lovely with rice, but I prefer it with Couscous.

This was a fabulous combination of flavours. I had diced chicken on hand so used that instead of the breasts. I cooked mine as stated, and just stirred the chicken through at the end. Delicious easy meal, and one I will definitely be making again.

What's not to enjoy with a beutiful combination of peppers, tomatoes and zucchini? I didn't have any green peppers and replaced it with three good sized white mushrooms sliced up. Also made this a tad healthier by reducing the oil used to 1 tablespoon. Thought the flavors were good the sauce was quite soupy. I cooked a bit more but then the veggies were getting a bit overdone. Finally ended up taking everything but the liquid out and letting it reduce some. Paula's suggestion of adding the zucchini is a good one and I wish I'd done that. Despite these small issues, the dish is really good and a great go to recipe when you want to put a beutiful and healthy meal on the table. Thanks.

This had a nice flavor and packed full of good veggies. I sliced the vegetables instead of chopping, just personal preference. Also, after cooking the chicken, I deglazed the pan with 1/2 cup apple juice and then added the onions, garlic, and peppers and drizzled lightly with olive oil. I choose not to add the squash until the last 10 minutes.
