I was looking for an easy dish and definitely found it with this recipe.
This recipe really had great flavor and almost reminded us of a "roast" only with chicken. Of course I love onion, green pepper, and garlic and feel that you usually can't go wrong if you have that combination. I think for the tomato sauce you could substitute any of the flavored type such as "Italian-style" or "Mexican-style".
Hope you enjoy!
