“Chicken and veggies in a tomato tequila lime sauce over pasta. My husband LOVES this one, it's great in the summer with margarita's, and can easily be doubled for parties. I recently retried this recipe as I wrote it the first time and noticed something was a little off, so I edited it, I think this works better! Thanks for the feedback!”
