And I wasn’t wrong!  The flavors of this sauce absolutely made the dish – it somehow manages to be full bodied without being overwhelming.  You get a nice mix of lean protein from the chicken and starch from the potatoes and peas.  You can feel free to add any of your favorite vegetables – it would be great with zucchini, cauliflower, even green peppers!
