12 PILGRIM'S PRIDE Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups chicken broth
1 (10 3/4-oz.) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (16-oz.) package frozen peas and carrots, thawed
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1. Pierce sweet potato several times with a fork. Place in microwave oven, and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave at HIGH 3 minutes or until done. Let stand 5 minutes; peel and dice. Set aside.

2. Sprinkle chicken evenly with seasoned salt. Sauté chicken and onion in hot oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat 5 to 8 minutes or until done. Remove chicken and onion.
