    Very tasty! I made this when I wanted to use up the ingredients I had on hand. Very simple and easy to make. I added minced garlic when cooking the chicken to add some more flavour and used marinara instead of spaghetti sauce since that is all I had. Also, I only had 1 red pepper and no green so I added asparagus and it tasted great and added the colour of the green pepper. Will definitely make again!

    Great, simple recipe! I added some chopped garlic with the chicken to add flavor, but I think it would still be great without it.
