Tips from an expert home chef

  • The recipe only calls for marinating the chicken while you prep, but you can marinate it for up to 24 hours if desired.
  • Don’t overcook the veggies! You want them cooked quickly over medium-high heat for that perfect crisp-tender texture.
  • Keep this meal interesting with different toppings! Add on some chipotle aioli sauce, green onions, avocado or red pepper flakes for a different flavor profile.
