Expert Tips

  • Boost the veggies in this dish by adding 1 cup frozen sweet peas to the chicken mixture along with the broth. Just add 2 minutes to the cook time.
  • If using a nonstick pan, increase cook time for chicken so it has time to brown on all sides.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
