This recipe was adapted from a recipe provided by - National Chicken Council / US Poultry & Egg Assn. I poached the chicken so as to avoid sautéing. It is really delicious and has been enjoyed by the "targeted" residents that might possibly like it and they did - they really loved it with vegetables and all! I did shred the chicken to make it easier for them to eat.
