Chicken with Mushrooms, Broccoli and Peppers
over Brown Rice

Cooking time:  25 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

        Another dish that closely resembles a stir-fry and a great way to use up the leftover bits in the fridge.  Remember that the broccoli stems are as good as the florets; some people prefer them.  Lightly peel them and cut them crosswise, 1/2" (1.25cm) thick.

Chicken with Mushrooms, Broccoli and Peppers

Total time: 25 minutes
    Tarragon and capers are the main flavor components of this chicken dish. They give a Mediterranean taste to the peppers and broccoli.  It all cooks quickly, leaving the vegetables crisp-tender.
