Chicken Creole

Cooking time:  30 minutes for menu      Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

         One always thinks of shrimp or seafood with Creole, but why not the versatile chicken breast?  There are lots of vegetables in the dish so I didn't do a separate side dish.

Chicken Creole  

Total time: 30 minutes
      Boneless chicken breasts, cooked with onions, peppers, mushrooms and tomatoes make a quick, healthy, dinner, perfect for midweek. Add Tabasco if you like more heat.
