Comments

  1. This was amazing! My husband and I loved this. I can’t believe this is low fat! Going to make it again.

  2. The person who said “yuck!!!!!” must not know good food or how to prepare it. This dish was flavorful, fresh, satisfying, and easy to prepare. I split my chicken breasts and cooked the dish for 30 minutes. The chicken was perfectly tender. I didn’t have enough zucchini, so I added some yellow squash and fresh mushrooms. Thanks for the great recipe!!!!

  3. Made this last night and it was delicious (I used boneless thighs with all visible fat removed) It took a lot longer to cook though – 45 minutes or so and I took the foil off towards the end to brown the top. Really good with wholewheat pasta!

  4. are the chicken breasts raw or cooked when you put them in the oven? 20 minutes doesn’t seem nearly long enough to cook all the way through

    • laaloosh says:

      They are raw. But they were thinly sliced, so they cooked through with no problem. If yours are a little thicker, you can leave them in a little longer until they are completely cooked.

  5. yuck!!!!! made this tonight nobody liked it
