Recipe Notes

You can also use boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts, you may have to adjust the cooking time by either adding them in after you have already started the vegetables. You also cook pull the chicken off early and let it rest while the vegetables finish cooking.
