I love this recipe because it brings fresh flavors and texture with the vegetables plus it keeps the chicken moist and easily to tolerate after weight loss surgery!

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 large Zucchini Squash
  • 10 baby carrots or 2 large carrots
  • 1 tsp dried minced garlic
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano


  • Begin by chopping vegetables. Dice zucchini and slice carrots. Using kitchen shears cut anything unwanted off chicken. Cut breast in half lengthwise and cut in half again to make a thinner serving of chicken.
  • Heat a large deep skillet to medium heat. Add 2 tsp olive oil. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Working in batches, brown both sides of chicken. Set aside in a covered dish to keep warm.
  • Add zucchini, carrots and minced garlic to the heated skillet. Stir often and cook for about 8 minutes. Add diced tomatoes and oregano.
  • Add chicken back to the skillet, pressing on it lightly to cover it in the sauce. Turn heat to low and add a lid. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes and double check internal temperature is 160F.
  • Remove from heat and serve chicken with vegetables.


One portion will provide approximately 3 ounces of meat and 1/2 cup of vegetables. Listen to your pouch and stop at the first sign of fullness.
