Bow Tie Chicken Supper

"My sister-in-law gave me a recipe for a healthy side dish, and I added chicken to it to make this colorful main course," writes Nancy Daugherty of Cortland, Ohio. "It's wonderful with a salad and crusty bread."

    Felt the peas didn?t mesh well with the other flavors, so I now substitute sliced fresh mushrooms. One little tweak has put this in the regular dinner rotation.

    This is a very good recipe for being low sodium. We will definitely make this one again, Thanks Nancy..
