Fiesta Lime Chicken with Zucchini

Chicken breast cutlet sauteed with lime with a side of zucchini and yellow squash.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. To prepare, slice zucchini and yellow squash into 1/4" sections.
  2. Dice tomatoes into the texture of salsa crudo. Mince garlic, parsley, scallions and cilantro.
  3. Combine diced tomatoes with cilantro, scallions, salt and pepper to create salsa crudo topping.
  4. Season chicken breast cutlets with seasoning, paprika and parsley. Begin to warm garlic & extra virgin olive oil in sauté pan.
  5. When garlic aromas become apparent, add seasoned chicken cutlets and add white wine.
  6. Sauté chicken in pan until chicken is 3/4 done. At that point, add zucchini, yellow squash, and lime juice. Cover and steam until vegetables reach desired texture.
  7. Remove chicken and vegetables when cutlets reach a caramelized-looking texture.
  8. Plate chicken and vegetables, and finish by adding desired amount of salsa crudo to the top of chicken. Enjoy!

Delish! I substituted low sodium chicken broth for white wine (just b/c i didnt have any on hand). It was excellent.

The family loved this one!! Didn't like the veggies cooked in the same pan so next time I will steam them. I will be making this again.

Yes! make sure the chicken portions are 4 oz each before cooking and keep veggies to the allotted portions for this diet. It is really delicious, I loved it. Fat is a little high, but worth it!

Made this recipe for dinner last night. It was very good and easy to make. I did add red pepper flakes to give it a little kick.
