Italian Chicken Stir Fry

"This is a great way to use sweet peppers from your garden. Although it can be eaten as is, we very often will serve it over thin pasta such as capellini. Very colorful with a marvellous flavor!"

    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.
