This is one of those recipes that you look at and think it might be okay, but give it a try because it will take you by surprise. It is even better the second day! To be honest, I only put chicken in it on the nights we are not eating any other protein. I like it without the meat. I’ve also made it with firm tofu and have been happy with the result. Check it out!

The original recipe called for a jar of roasted red peppers. I like the fresh taste of red peppers roasted over a flame, so I changed to recipe. It would be simpler to add a jar (7 oz) of peppers, but keep in mind it adds fat, calories and sodium. This recipe is so healthy, it might be worth the trade to you.
