EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Morph this into a meatless meal! Skip the chicken and add 1 chopped medium red bell pepper with the shallots. Then, stir in 1 can (14 oz) quartered artichoke hearts, drained well, with the cheeses.

Serve this dish with warm crusty bread to dip into the cheesy sauce and, for dessert, small scoops of sorbet in chocolate cups bought at the store.
