This recipe came in an email chain I receive from Taste of Home. I changed it up a bit by making a couple additions, doubled the chicken and reduced the liquid to make it thick and rich. Serve it with a side salad and fresh made cornbread muffins.

  2. Chop the onion, red bell pepper, celery and garlic cloves. Cut chicken breasts in bite-size pieces.
