    Serves: 4 

    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 185g yellow squash, sliced
    • 185g zucchinis, sliced
    • 1 medium tomato, peeled, seeded and diced

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. In a large nonstick frypan, melt butter in the oil over medium high heat. Season chicken with half of the salt and half of the pepper and add it to frypan. Cook until lightly browned; about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to large plate or platter and cover to keep warm.
    2. Pour off fat from frypan and add squash, zucchini and tomato. Season with remaining salt and pepper. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until squash is slightly softened; about 3 minutes. Reduce heat and return chicken to frypan. Cover partially. Cook until squash is soft and chicken is white throughout but still juicy; about 5 minutes longer.
    3. Transfer chicken to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm. Raise heat to high. Cook vegetable mixture stirring often until almost all of the liquid has evaporated; about 2 minutes. Arrange vegetables around chicken and serve.

    This meal was extremely bland. Though healthy, it was lacking in flavor. I would suggest adding more tomatoes to add flavor and also, when sauteing the veges, add fresh garlic, onions, and additional seasonings (basil, oregano, etc.) This is a great idea for a meal, you just need to get creative with it.  -  13 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I don't really understand the "bland" comments. I think salt, pepper and a little fat (olive oil, butter) are all you need: chicken should taste like chicken, zucchini like zucchini. Hey, I'm all for bold flavors and spicy foods, but sometimes simple equals better. Treat your ingredients with care; don't overcook your chicken; season it well, and you have a fabulous meal.  -  31 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this for dinner; it was fast and yummy! I added some fresh sliced mushrooms, 1 tsp of minced garlic, and used a can of stewed tomatoes instead of the tomatoe.  -  26 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
