One of the best recipes I've ever made! My husband just loves this! It was simple, easy and quick. I too followed others advice and this is what I changed...I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts ( I also didn't bother to pre-cook the chicken), I used mushrooms from a jar, 1 can diced tomato and 1 small can tomato paste (I put the Italian dressing in with this). I also waited until the last hour of so to throw in the peppers, mushrooms and some zucchinis! Instead of over rice, I put mine over pasta. I'm adding this to my regular recipe list!
