Foil wrapped chicken and zucchini

from Frugal and Fabulous


4 chicken breasts (or equivalent, I used chicken tenders)
4 tsp Taco Seasoning Mix
3/4 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup Chunky Salsa
1/4 cup Sour Cream
4 sheets of foil

Heat oven to 400°F. Place a chicken breast in the center of each sheet. Sprinkle chicken with seasoning mix. Top with salsa and cheese. Fold foil into packets, leaving room for heat circulation inside (i.e. not too tight!). Place packets in glass 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake 30 to 35 min. or until chicken is done. (Chicken tenders will be cooked in about 25 minutes!) Cool 5 min. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening. Top with sour cream.

Sauteed Zucchini - from Finding Joy in My Kitchen
1-2 medium zucchini, quartered
little drizzle of olive oil
pinch of salt
light sprinkles of Italian seasoning (we like Mrs. Dash)
cheese, to taste

Saute the zucchini over medium heat in a bit of olive oil until crisp tender. Season with salt and Italian seasoning while cooking. Top with shredded cheddar or colby jack cheese.

Review: both recipes where exactly what I needed tonight, quick and easy! They both tasted delightful. Great weeknight meals for when your short on time!
