What's For Dinner?

Italian Chicken & Zucchini

Do you ever use ready made Italian dressing as a marinade?
Me too...until I found a healthier version. This is a super simple dinner that is definitely a family favorite!

It's makes a great freezer meal to prepare ahead of time for those busy weeknights when you just need to get dinner made in a jiffy!

Italian Chicken & Zucchini
4 chicken breasts
1 large zucchini, cut into half moons 
1 small onion, thickly sliced
2 TBSP Wildtree Italian Salad Dressing Mix
2 TBSP Wildtree Garlic Grapeseed Oil
1 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 tsp salt

Heat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat with a small drizzle of Wildtree's Natural Grapeseed Oil. In large bowl, blend the Italian seasoning, gso, vinegar and salt. Add the chicken, zucchini and onions and stir to coat. Place the chicken in the pre-heated pan along with with veggies and all of the marinade...I mean scrape the bowl into the pan! Let the chicken brown on one side and then turn over. Move the zucchini and onions around the pan to make sure they all get caramelized. Do not be tempted to move the chicken a lot...let it sit in the pan and cook. This will ensure a delicious brown crust will develop - so yummy!!!  Serve with rice and acorn squash baked with maple syrup and a brushing of Wildtree's Butter Grapeseed Oil.

Delish in a dish!
