Almost all my recipes are dessert-oriented; I thought I should contribute something else for a change of pace. I found this one on an IBS-friendly recipe website; it is attributed to someone named Tess Louise. I made it with my mom and sister one night; we altered it according to our tastes & eliminated the honey and red pepper flakes, and increased the garlic. We also lessened the original cooking time of the chicken since it seemed to be getting dry--you can play that by ear. Very yummy and quick--could dress it up a bit more by using angel hair or penne pasta.
