After being on vacation for 6 days, the last thing I want to do is come home from work and cook. This is why I LOVE batch cooking. 1 night, 1 hour- meals for the next 4 days –sounds pretty awesome to me! Tried this amazing chicken recipe I found at goodlifeeats.com, a few slight modifications and BOOM the perfect healthy meal for anyone!
Italian Chicken, Mushroom, & Zucchini Skillet
Place chicken pieces into skillet, sprinkle italian seasoning packet, and add water. Cook chicken thoroughly on low heat; stirring occasionally.
While the chicken is cooking, chop onions, zucchini, garlic and mushrooms (TIP: Save time and garlic fingers: buy pre-sliced mushrooms and minced garlic!)
Once chicken is completely cooked, remove from skillet and set aside on a plate. Add olive oil to skillet, toss onions in skillet and sauté for 2-3 minutes (or until onions start to become clear)
Then, add mushrooms and sauté onions and mushrooms for another 5 minutes. Add garlic, zucchini, and sun-dried tomatoes to vegetable mixture and sauté for another 2-3 minutes. Finally added diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper
Place chicken back in skillet and cover with vegetable mixture. Wa-la batch cooking at its finest! So excited to enjoy this meal all week
