Midweek Mealtime - Rosemary Chicken with Garlic Parmesan Zucchini

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

One of the ways I'm working to change my operating system is my food - and my relationship with it.  I will explain more about that Monday, but suffice it to say, I've been rediscovering several once-loved things that had fallen by the wayside. 

One such thing?  Cooking.  Delicious, flavorful, cooking.  One of my favorite flavors?  Rosemary.  And what's better than a little (ok, a lot) of rosemary and chicken?  Rosemary, chicken, and delicious garlic Parmesan zucchini rounds. 

Shall we?

30 minute meals chicken zucchini



  • 2 lb sliced zucchini
  • 6 Tbsp olive oil, divided 
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • 1½ tsp salt, divided
  • 1½ tsp pepper, divided
  • 2lb boneless skinless chicken tenderloins, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 (8-oz) pkg sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • ½ cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 475°F. Toss together zucchini, 2 Tbsp oil, garlic, thyme, ½ tsp salt, and ½ tsp pepper on a rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Bake zucchini 10 to 12 minutes or until browned and tender.
  3. While zucchini is baking, add flour and ½ tsp each salt and pepper to a gallon ziplock bag.  Shake well.  Add chicken pieces, and shake until all chicken pieces are covered.
  4. Cook chicken in remaining oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove from skillet.
  5. Cook mushrooms in skillet over medium-high heat until browned.  Stir in broth, rosemary, and ¼ tsp each salt and pepper; return chicken to skillet.
  6. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until liquid is reduced and chicken is done. Whisk in mustard and butter until melted.
  7. When zucchini is done baking, stir and sprinkle with cheese. Bake 1 to 2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.

Easy, quick, and tasty!  Please let me know below if you give it a try!
