I made this for my two boys who are picky eaters, but changed some of the food in there. Instead of adding only those vegetable in the recipes, I ended up swapping them out for broccoli, zucchini, squash, red/orange/and yellow bell peppers, and both my boys (and husband) wanted seconds! I definitely would make this again, it has become an all time favorite with my family and even my mom has been asking for the recipe! By far my favorite one!!!

After reading several reviews, I went ahead and seasoned the chicken with salt, peeper, and a small pinch of Italian seasoning. I did not have asparagus but did have everything else. This dish was so good and tasty even the veggies had a lot of flavor. My husband loved it too, he wants this dish to be a staple in our house. Fast and easy to make...my favorite!

I didn't have asparagus so I added grape tomatoes in the last few minutes of sauteing the veggies, plus I added a couple cloves of garlic to the mix. The tomatoes cooked down to give a nice tomato cream sauce. We thought it needed a little salt and pepper, but otherwise it was great. A definite keeper!

I read the reviews in that it was a bit bland so I added Italian seasoning, garlic, and salt/pepper. I omitted the red pepper and added red onion. Delicious! My kids asked me to make the next night too!

Read others reviews before making this recipe and decided to use the Philadelphia Cooking Creme 'Italian Cheese & Herb'. It really enhanced the flavor of the dish. Kids loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was very good. This was very good. Next time I make it, I will cook the chicken first, remove it from the skillet, then cook the veggies so they get brown and caramelized. Super easy to make!
