I've prepared this recipe at two Pampered Chef parties and it is yummy! It's an easy fix and there are a few shortcuts to make it a super quick recipe. If you've been to a Pampered Chef party you will know there is no time for taking pictures so no pictures for this recipe, but when I make it at home I'll be sure to document it with the camera!
For this recipe I used the Pampered Chef Manual Food Processor and Professional Shears and both products were ordered at the party. These are two kitchen neccessities!
The Pampered Chef exclusive heavy-duty shears are perfect for kitchen prep and other household tasks: cutting through chicken bones, trimming meats and veggies, snipping herbs, cutting twine and fresh flowers...the list goes on and on! The springloaded design and ergonomic soft-grip handles help you do it all comfortably. Includes a protective storage cover. Dishwasher safe.
Just drop in ingredients and pump the handle! Our unique curved blades chop, slice, and blend ingredients in seconds. The more you pump, the finer the cuts. Includes a handle lock for convenient storage, measure marks for easy measuring, and nonskid base for stability. 3 cups. Vessel and blade post are dishwasher safe.

a few recipe notes :)
*This recipe is just as yummy if you don't use peas. If you are like me, green peas are not tasty!
*The professional shears are great for dicing the chicken and bacon. The manual food processor is a quick tool to use to dice the onion and bell pepper.
*The past two times I've made this recipe we haven't been able to fine grated smoked Provolone cheese so you will have to grate or thinly slice your cheese.
*I use minced garlic ;)
