This is a really good, healthy recipe. I think next time I would brown the chicken before adding to the mixture.

Variations: I grill the chicken separately on a countertop grill, slice the chicken into strips, and serve it on top of the vegetables. I also add other vegetables from the farm co-op box, like string beans and yellow summer squash and mushrooms; and I shake in a half tsp of herbs de provence.
