Chicken and Peppers

This is one of our family's favorite recipes and Mom's first recipe discovery on the internet. I am posting it here so that my sister can find it! The original recipe can be found at Land O'Lakes' website:

6 TBS butter
1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into strips
1 medium yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
1 tsp finely chopped fresh garlic
6 (4 oz each) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips or cubes
1 TBS finely chopped fresh tarragon leaves OR 1 tsp dried tarragon
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp coarsely ground pepper
8 oz uncooked dried vermicelli (extra thin spaghetti)
4 oz (1 cup) mozzarella Cheese, shredded
1/2 C freshly grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 C Half & Half

Melt butter in a large skillet until sizzling. Add garlic, onion, and peppers. Cook over medium high heat for 2-3 min, until tender but still crisp. Remove vegetables from the pan with a slotted spoon.

Add chicken, tarragon, salt, and pepper to the pan. Cook, stirring occassionaly until chicken is cooked (7-9 min).

Meanwhile, cook vermicelli as directed.

Add vegetables, cheeses, and half & half to the chicken. Cook until cheese is melted (3-5 min).
