Spicy Chicken and Zucchini Saute'


Devilishly spicy chicken and zucchini saute is a quick and easy dish that makes any meal special.

I love spicy food, especially curries.  Meat curries can take a little bit of time to make, so I am always looking for fast meat dishes that can go with yellow rice, sauteed noodles or some naan to make a quick meal.  This dish does just that and it uses up zucchini that is in season right now. 

I love how simple this dish is, only a few quick spices and some veggies to really make a flavorful dish.  I used boneless chicken tenders in this dish and didn't even have to cut any meat.  I just seasoned the tenders right out of the package and added them into the hot pan.  

Spicy, delicious, healthy and easy... it's just what I want to cook this hot summer when I would rather be spending time outside.
