Yield Makes 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 (22-oz.) package frozen mashed potatoes
  • 2 pounds skinned and boned chicken thighs
  • 1 tablespoon Greek seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 medium zucchini, chopped
  • 1/2 cup diced onion

How to Make It

  1. Prepare mashed potatoes according to package directions. Keep warm.

  2. Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with Greek seasoning. Cook chicken in hot oil in large skillet over medium-high heat 7 to 8 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from skillet, and keep warm.

  3. Reduce heat to medium. Add zucchini and onion to skillet, and sauté 2 to 3 minutes or until tender. Add tomatoes, and cook, stirring often, 7 to 10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat, and stir in butter and next 3 ingredients.

  4. Serve chicken over potatoes. Spoon sauce over chicken and potatoes. Serve immediately.
