Chicken and Veggies


With all the wonderful summer vegetables starting to come in, I decided to take the "treats" I got from my parents garden and turn them into some kind of dish.  I really liked the taste and would make this one again.  We had it as a main dish alone.  I could see this as a nice sauce over either pasta or rice as well.  Thanks Mom and Dad for the ingredients for a delicious dinner!

Ingredients:

2 chicken breast, sliced into 1 inch pieces
1  small zucchini, sliced
1 large tomato, diced
1 small bunch of broccoli, cut into small sections
1/2 cup baby carrots, quartered lengthwise
6 tablespoons Greek Salad dressing
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper


Dressing
Mix Greek Salad dressing, balsamic vinegar, honey, and red pepper flakes  - whisk together and set aside.

Add olive oil to a skillet and heat over medium high heat.  Add chicken and cook until no longer pink. 
Add half of the dressing to coat chicken, then take remove chicken from pan and keep warm.

Stir fry all veggies with remaining dressing until carrots are al dente.  Add chicken and warm.

Serve and enjoy - as I said earlier, this dish would be delicious over rice or pasta.
