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!!
