This combination of chicken, tomatoes, and zucchini is absolutely delicious, and it's a quick and easy dish to prepare. Serve this flavorful chicken with rice or potatoes for a great family meal.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves, without skin
  • salt and pepper
  • Creole or Cajun seasoning
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 4 medium zucchini squash, thinly sliced
  • 4 to 6 plum tomatoes, sliced
  • salt and pepper
  • 6 ounces fresh Mozzarella cheese or slices


In a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil. Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper, and seasoning, then dust lightly with flour. Brown the chicken in the hot skillet, turning to brown both sides. Add chicken broth. Cover the skillet and simmer for 10 minutes (less if the chicken breasts are thin). Add zucchini; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Add sliced tomatoes and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper; simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 10 minutes longer, or until chicken is cooked through. Top with cheese slices, cover, and simmer for about 1 minute longer.
Serves 4.
