Good Morning dear readers,  I was playing in my kitchen this weekend. I wanted something different and something that wouldn't make a lot of mess. That's where my dutch oven comes into play. I love this little pot it takes care of everything. You put all your ingredients in it and your done.  When I found this recipe on Mr. Food's site I new I wanted to play with  it.  So I altered it to fit my families needs and here's what I came up with.  It tastes really yummy so check it out.

here's what you'll need:
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt divided
just a pinch of pepper
2 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast cut into cubes-this can be changed didn't have at the time use foster farms precooked diced chicken makes things easier
4 tbs olive oil, divided
1/2 lb fresh mushrooms pre-cut
1 green bell pepper chopped
1 cup chopped frozen onions, defrosted
1 tbs minced garlic
1 3/4 cups beef broth
1 (28 oz jar) ragu spaghetti sauce with chunky mushrooms
