This recipe is FULL OF FLAVOR! I’m actually making it AGAIN this week (made it last week). We doubled the chicken and sauce and it only lasted 2 dinners and 1 lunch for the hubby. So, it went FAST! I think I’ll triple it…all of it…including the veggies next time b/c we were fighting over the veggies!
