Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 6 pieces boneless, skinless chicken breasts about 2 lbs
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 medium zucchini cut into rounds
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 1 orange or yellow bell pepper chopped
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1/3 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fresh basil chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon sliced

Instructions

  1. Season chicken with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper or to taste.
  2. Heat 1/2 - 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, then add the chicken and brown for 6 minutes on each side or until medium brown.
  3. Remove chicken and set aside on a plate. Add another 1/2 - 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pan. Add the onion and garlic and saute for about 1-2 minutes until softened. Layer on pieces of sliced zucchini cooking until slightly golden brown, a few minutes on each side - working in batches. Push aside the zucchini to one side and add the sun-dried tomatoes, then bell peppers and stir-gently.
  4. Transfer the chicken back to the pan and add chicken stock. Turn heat to medium low and cover until chicken is cooked through and the sauce is slightly reduced - about 7-9 minutes. Add in dried oregano and fresh herbs (cilantro, basil, and parsley) and allow to simmer for an additional 2 minutes uncovered. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste as needed.
  5. Remove from heat and garnish with additional herbs if desired and serve with favorite sides.
