Helpful hints

  • Chicken may be increased to 6 ounces for those on dialysis. Protein content will be increased to 29 grams per serving.
  • For quick preparation, use 1-1/4 cups of a frozen vegetable mixture of similar composition to replace fresh vegetables.
  • Add more or less red pepper flakes to suit your own tolerance for spicy foods.
  • Squeeze on lemon juice or sprinkle with balsamic vinegar to add a tangy flavor.

Italian Style Vegetables & Pasta with Chicken

Made this for my work lunches. I doubled the red pepper flakes because I like my food to bite back. Turned out very well. I made a triple batch and added more chicken. I will be making this again! Maybe next time I will share with my family!
