Tips

Season to your liking- I am a taste as I go person, so double check your flavors :)


Directions

1. Dice up the fresh zucchini and set aside until corn is defrosted. 2. Defrost corn (if using frozen) and combine with fresh zucchini. 3. Brown chicken and then saute with a tablespoon of olive oil and spices. Season to your liking. Cut up chicken and seta aside to combine with ingredients later. 4. Add olive oil to pan and mince 2 cloves of garlic. Saute garlic just until it starts to become fragrant and then add corn and zucchini to the pan. Add seasonings to your liking. Let veggies cook until desired tenderness. 5. While veggies are cooking, microwave rice according to instructions. 6. Add rice & chicken to vegetables once cooked. 7.
