I made this on Labour Day and had to substitute for items I didn't have on hand. (Substituted asparagus for the zucchini italian seasoning for the garlic powder and balsamic vinagrette for the italian dressing). We really really enjoyed it and I'd like to try it again with the proper ingredients. My only regret is that we didn't have any white wine to drink with it. Read More

It's an easy fast dinner. Instead of leaving the chicken in the pan with the veggies I removed the chicken and then added it at the end to make sure it didn't get soggy. It worked pretty well. Served over couscous. Read More

For the person who's chicken turned out soggy---make sure to brown the chicken very well over medium high heat to sear and create a crust. The main point of the flour is to thicken the sauce while cooking. Also I make my own italian dressing as the bottled kind has way too much sodium for my likeing and also to many other "strange ingredients" Read More

This was a great dish. We used shrimp instead of chicken (cook separately and add shrimp at the end or they will be over done) vegetable stock instead of chicken stock and extra zucchini in place of the mushrooms. We also did what other commenters said and used balsamic vinegar instead of Italian. We served it over couscous. I'll definitely be making this again!! It had great flavors I cleaned my plate. We made the '4 servings' but it was just enough for two people. Read More

I substituted carrots for the zucchini and used a balsamic vinaigrette instead of the Italian dressing. Served it over wild rice--very glad I made enough for leftovers. Read More

This was pretty good. I took another reviewers advice and skipped the flour. Next time I will add the vegetables and chicken at the same time the vegetables were a little too crunchy for our taste. Read More

This is a good basic stir-fry recipe and as the contributer points out it can be made with any choice selection of vegetables. I keep a good supply of homemade strongly flavoured garlic oil so I can eliminate the garlic powder and also add Fennel oregano and and fresh green olives eliminate dressing and make sure that all vegetables have a nice crunch to them aftr cooking. I also prefer chicken thighs but that is what we chefs do we play with the bounty of the earth and the ocean. Good recipe have fun with it. Read More
