I think I found this on Cooking Light. I tweaked it a bit . . . switched pine nuts for sliced almonds, more garlic . . . The chicken itself was AMAZING. The onions and peppers were great over rice with it.

Incredible! 5.0/5

Don't let the calories scare you off... This is a super-thick / meal-y sauce! Don't add any salt - the canned sauce needs no additional sodium, and you'll get flavour from the Italian Seasoning! :) [Created 2009-11-14.]

This is a deliciously rich tasting dish that I came up with because it combines two of my favorite flavors, roasted red peppers and gouda.

Delicious and easy, this salad combines all of my favorite sushi ingredients in one bowl! And, because it's based on a California roll, it uses fully cooked seafood.

I can't get enough of this easy recipe; it's ready in 15 minutes!The still-runny egg yolk adds a creaminess to the sauce and perfectly mixes with the spinach.
