Chicken Zucchini Pan Fry

We found a recipe for Zucchini Boats that had chicken, nuts, mushrooms and onions bake in zucchini. It was a lot of work and the flavor was good, but as usual we wanted to improve on it. After a couple of tries we landed on the following recipe which has become a family favorite.

Ingredients:

2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts Cubed
2 T Olive Oil
2 cups Zucchini Cubed
2 cups Yellow or Crookneck Squash
1 cup Onions Diced
1 cup Mushrooms sliced
1 cup Cherry or Grape Tomatoes cut in half
1 cup  Nuts (Walnuts, Pecans)
1-2 cup Crumbled Goat Cheese

Directions

In a large cast iron skillet. Grill cubed chicken over medium heat. Remove from a pan. Saute onions until caramelized.  Remove from pan and add to chicken. Saute mushrooms. Return chicken and onions to the pan. Stir in zucchini and yellow squash and cook for 5 minutes. Add in nuts and tomatoes. Cook 2 – 3 minutes. Stir in 1 cup Goat Cheese just before serving.  Sprinkle with additional Goat Cheese when serving. We enjoy it with Pita Bread.
