Thyme Chicken with Squash and Peppers

All the credit for this simple, delicious supper has to go to my new fiancé.  He knows his way around the kitchen and took over last night while I was getting my yoga on.  The thyme in this dish will make your kitchen smell amazing and I bet that you will eat every bite and wish you cooked extra for a sandwich the next day!
