Try it w/bell peppers, Member onemoll

I tried this recipe for the first time, and as I started cooking I realized I didn't have any broccoli so I substituted green bell peppers instead. I loved it (and my wife did too)! The dish has a great taste and flavor, and the proportions are the right size. If you like more creamy sauce, I would suggest adding a little more sour cream and/or milk as most of the sauce got soaked up in the pasta, chicken, and peppers, and there wasn't much ""liquid"" remaining.
