I should have followed my gut and not used the tyson frozen chicken tenders. It didn't turn out edible. Next time I try it, I will use normal chicken breast. The recipe itself is a good start to something, I just need to tweak it for our tastes.

We really liked this healthy, tasty recipe. I used 24 ounces of broth instead of the 28 and 1/2 your recipe called for.Mine was a bit on the dry side... next time I will follow more exactly. We still really liked the flavors and DH is looking forward to the leftovers tommorrow. Thanks for the share.
