Just excellent CBettiga!! I used two boneless skinless chicken breast halves and did not change another thing. Delicious as is!! The veggies were especially good, not overcooked, tender crisp, just the way we like them. Used up some left over white wine which added a nice taste. This was quick and easy and we will be making it again and again. Thanks for sharing!!
Great recipe. We really enjoyed the lemon flavor in this recipe. I also liked the color that the addition of the red pepper brought to this dish.Other than using two chicken breasts and browning them in only 1 tbls. of oil, I followed the recipe exactly.
I really liked the lemon flavor in this and the combination of vegetables. I did make a couple of errors that affected the final outcome of the dish. I doubled the recipe. I should have browned the meat in batches and didn't. There was too much liquid and the meat never got brown. I might have been able to fix the problem of too much liquid by eliminating the extra water (I didn't have wine) but I had already measured it in the same cup as the stock. These problems would be easily rectified in another trial, but due to family preferences I will not be making this again.
