I am always trying to think of quick and easy meals to have on Tuesday and Thursday evenings since I do not get home from class until 7:30 and this was the perfect meal. I chopped all my veggies and cooked the chicken on Monday night so all I had to do was throw everything into the pot and cook it. This turned out wonderful and I will definitely have to make it again.
