I love the addition of zucchini in this recipe. The only heat in this dish comes from the salsa verde, so if your salsa is mild, you can add green chiles or diced jalapenos to adjust to your taste. Recipe is from Good Housekeeping.
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 lb chicken breast tenders, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
- 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 2 large zucchini, cut into 1 1/2-inch by 1/2-inch spears

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 3-quart shallow baking dish.
- In a 12-inch skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil on medium-high. Season chicken with 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Add to skillet in single layer and sear 2 minutes. Turn chicken over; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until just browned. Transfer to large bowl.
