If you want something light and refreshing to eat for dinner then you’ve got to give this a try.  I made it last night…its amazing and very easy!

Serves 2

Start to finish- 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb zucchini
  • 1 garlic cloves
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup torn basil leaves
  • Accompaniment: Lemon Wedges

Directions: Shave zucchini lengthwise with carrot peeler or slicer and put in a large bowl.  Thinly slice garlic and reserve separately.  Pat chicken dry, then cut crosswise into thirds.  Season chicken all over with 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper.  Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers.  Saute chicken until golden brown about 8-14 minutes.  Add chicken to the bowl of zucchini.  Then add garlic to skillet and cook until pale golden, about 1 minute.  Add the 1 Tbsp water to skillet and scrape up any brown bits, then drizzle over chicken and zucchini.  Add basil and 1/8 tsp salt to bowl and toss until zucchini wilts slightly.  Season with salt and pepper.

Enjoy!!
