I made this for dinner tonight with a few changes. I used red and green peppers because that is what we had in the garden. We also have some vegetarians in our family. So I skipped the first steps of cooking the chicken. Instead I used a bag of Quorn tenders and they worked wonderfully. I also had to add an additional 1/2 cup of chicken stock. I served it over low carb angel hair pasta. We all thought that this was very good. I would make this again.

I'm a small animal veterinary technician working full time. In my spare (?) time I love to bake and cook. I have about 80 different cookbooks and I guess my favorite ones are those that involve CHOCOLATE!! <br> <br>My biggest 'pet' peeve is people who treat their dogs and cats like disposable products...look after the health and well-being of your pets, PLEASE! They depend on you! ('Nuff said!). <br> <br>June 2003 Update: I now work part-time as a vet tech and part-time as an ER ward clerk at a local hospital. After being a technician for 20 years, the emotional stress was getting too hard to handle. Putting an older pet to sleep after I'd watched them grow up over the years was something I could no longer do. I decided to look for a new job while I was still 40-something rather than wait 4 years when I was 50-something! Working with animals is in my blood however, so I could not give it up entirely.
