    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    Great for those days when you stagger home from work and need dinner on the table fifteen minutes ago. So simple I'm a little embarrassed to call it a recipe. Tasty AND low fat.

      Thanks Jenny for posting this easy, delicious recipe. Time was short and I cooked this in no time. It was very tasty, and they chicken was moist as I kept turning it like you suggested. I made my own salsa which was good. I didn't serve it on anything as I served a Mexican slaw instead. Thanks for sharing this good recipe.

      I had fresh squash so I used that instead of zucchini. I omitted the mushrooms and instead added an entire bag of thawed broccoli, carrots and cauliflower. I served it all over couscous that I cooked in homemade chicken broth. And I added some pepper jack cheese on top! Pretty good weeknight meal and easy clean up. I will make it again! Thanks
