    Sweet Diva's Note:

    My favorite entree from the Olive Garden. They took it off their menu and I was so disappointed - until I found it on their website!

      I used 2 packages of frozen asparagus stir fry (defrosted) instead of the vegetables listed. You could use any mixed vegetable combo acording to your taste. My family liked it, but complained that there wasn't enough sauce. If I make it again, I will double the sauce.

      Just our style, just enough sauce to enhance our giant pile of delicious veggies. DH declared, "I could eat like this the rest of my life!" The prep did not take as long as I feared, but I think the instructions should address marinating the chicken first. Thank you, Boo! Made for Secret Ingredient Tag.
