Ingredients

  • 1 Pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into chunks
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, such as Country Crock® Spread, divided
  • 3 Cups bite-size chunks zucchini and/or yellow squash
  • 1 Cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 Cup halved grape tomatoes
  • 1/4 Cup parsley or basil leaves, chopped
  • Black pepper, to taste (optional)

Directions

Season chicken with salt. Melt 1 tablespoon Country Crock® Spread in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked, about 5 minutes; remove and set aside.

Melt 1 tablespoon Spread in same skillet; add squash and onion and cook, stirring frequently, until almost tender, about 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes; cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in chicken, remaining 2 tablespoons Spread, and if, desired, parsley. Season, if desired, with ground black pepper.

Easy Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Easy Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Easy Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
