Buttery Garlic Chicken with Zucchini


Who doesn’t love a quick and easy 30-minute recipe, especially with so much going on with life and school? Instead of putting some ramen in the microwave, give this yummy and easy recipe a try. The best part about it is that it only takes 30 minutes but still is incredible, and all you need is a stove top and a skillet. Plus, I like to think it is a semi-healthy meal. It is a simple way to fit some protein and greens into our diet!

Time: (about 30 mins)

  • Prep time ~ 5 mins

What you need:

  • Boneless skinless chicken thighs
