    Jean, The nice thing about this recipe is that there is the option to substitute the chicken out for other meats and proteins. It is versatile for your preferences and food sensitivities.

    Sounds good. Will have to make this for Greg with shrimp since he can’t have chicken. Either way, it sounds really good.
