1 (22-oz.) package frozen mashed potatoes
2 pounds skinned and boned chicken thighs
1 tablespoon Greek seasoning
2 tablespoons olive oil

1. Prepare mashed potatoes according to package directions. 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.
