Chicken Zucchini Bake

'Tis the season for zucchini! This dish is light, but satisfying (as in, we both were able to avoid snacking with "ease" for the rest of the evening) and very tasty.



Chicken Zucchini Bake - Snow White

2 chicken breasts
Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb salt-free seasoning
1 large zucchini
1 large summer squash
8oz mushrooms
1 tsp. olive oil
sea salt
3 Baby Swiss Cheese slices

Preheat oven to 375. Place chicken breasts in a lightly greased 8x8 glass baking dish. Sprinkle with Garlic and Herb seasoning to taste.



Cover and bake chicken for 45-60 minutes until internal temps reach 180.



When chicken has been in the oven for about 30 minutes, slice up the mushrooms, and quarter the zucchini and summer squash.



Saute the veggies in olive oil until crisp-tender. Season with salt (and pepper, if desired) to taste.



When chicken is done, remove from the oven and top with sauteed veggies.





Layer sliced cheese over the top of the veggies, and return dish to the oven. Broil for 5-10 minutes until cheese is slightly browned and bubbly.





Serve over rice.

  1. I like that the vegetables are sauteed separately and won't be cooked to death. I bet you could change up the vegetables too depending on what you had in the fridge.
