This is a big favorite in our house. My kids go wild over the chopped peanuts, so I add more at the table.

Really nice! Like you, Mirj, I used LOTS more hot sauce. My son noted that he ate all of the zucchini in his serving (not one of his favorites) and my picky 7-year-old liked it just fine. I used boneless chicken breasts, so cooking time was less than listed. It was a very colorful and tasty meal - thanks for sharing!
