Delicious and easy to make, we really enjoyed this recipe, thanks for posting it! The combination of ingredients is very much to our tastes. I used green pepper, zucchini and green onions as the veggies. I was out of wooden skewers, so I pan cooked the chicken in the sauce and added in the veggies when the chicken was just about ready. I also had to sub spaghettini for the linguine. Very yummy!
