This was super yummy! I added mushrooms and instead of a full tsp of salt, i dashed in some soy sauce and worcheshire (sp) sauce. Also the nutrition info is off because it counts the entire cup of dressing when only 2 TBS stuck. I measured the amount of marinade left after I put the chicken on the grill. The real info is: 290 calories, 15g fat, 858 sodium, 10 carb, 30 protein.

Good recipe! Easy to prepare for dinner during the work week. This recipe would also be good made as sandwiches on Kaiser rolls. Next time I may add some teriyaki sauce, soy sauce or balsamic vinegar to the peppers while they saute. Thank you for the recipe. Made for Fall 2009 PAC.
