Recently I tried zucchini & squash for the first time. Yes, you read that right. I'm a recovering insanely picky eater, but happy to report I've made major progress... Things I used to not eat and now can't get enough of- avocado, zucchini, squash, asparagus & onion. Things I still struggle with- seafood & mushrooms. Seafood I'm working on, mushrooms I believe I legitimately do not like.
Anyway, I recently threw this together one week night and decided to share because we both loved it. It's easy, healthy & filling. Can you tell by now those are my favorite types of recipes?
Creamy Chicken Zucchini Skillet
1 zucchini- washed, peeled & chopped
1 yellow squash- washed, peeled & chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion (I used sweet vidalia)
5 oz cherry tomatoes, cut in halves
4 chicken tenderloins, cubed
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
Seasonings of choice
2 Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Light wedges
Combine chicken cubes, garlic and onion in a skillet and cook until chicken is done and onions are soft. Season the chicken a couple of times as it's cooking with your favorite seasonings. (I always use pepper, Greek Seasoning & Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb) Add in the tomatoes, zucchini & squash. Cover skillet and cook for about 10 minutes on medium low heat, stirring 1-2 times. Once the zucchini & squash are soft, toss in the 2 Laughing Cow wedges. Stir and cook long enough for them to get creamy, about 2 minutes. Dish it out & enjoy! I tossed a little fat free mozzarella cheese on top of ours and made side salads.
Another low carb, low fat & high protein dish. Let me know if you try it out!
Did you catch my super easy breakfast casserole dish last week?
