Quick Notes

You can prepare the chicken and store in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days before preparing the rest of the meal.


Substitute one 10oz package frozen peas for the frozen broccoli and 1 cup chopped cooked ham for the chicken. ( I have not tried this).
