Light & Easy Chicken and Veggies

Light & Easy Chicken and Veggies

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in half
Garlic cloves, minced (to taste ~ I used 1 per breast half)
onion powder, to taste
salt & pepper to taste
1 large red onion
1 red pepper
2 small yellow squash
fresh basil, to taste
fresh chives, to taste
olive oil or non-stick spray, for spritzing

Preheat oven to 325F.

Cut a slit into each chicken piece. Add garlic into each slit (I used 1 clove per breast half). Sprinkle onion powder, salt, & pepper to taste. Spray frying pan with just enough olive oil to coat, or use non-stick spray. Brown each side of the chicken (approx 2-3 minutes per side).

In a 9x13 pan, spray with nonstick spray or drizzle with olive oil. Cut onions, peppers, and squash into large pieces. Sprinkle with salt & pepper to taste. Add a fresh basil chifinade (I used approximately 6 leaves). Place the chicken on top of the veggies. Cover with tinfoil and bake for 40-45 minutes until veggies are to desired tenderness. Sprinkle with fresh cut chives and serve.

Serves 6.
