Chicken Breasts with Cherry Tomatoes and Zucchini

Adapted from Williams Sonoma book, "Chicken."

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 2 whole(s) zucchini cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 2 tablespoon(s) shallot chopped
  • 2 cup(s) cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 teaspoon(s) fresh rosemary chopped

Add the shallot and cook, stirring, for one minute. Add the tomatoes and rosemary and cook, stirring occasionally, until the the tomatoes are heated through but not collapsed, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

3. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides. Cook over medium-high heat, turning once, until browned on both sides and firm when pressed in the center, about 8 minutes total. Transfer to a plante.

4. Add the wine to the pan and bring to a boil. Return the vegetables to the pan and cook for one minute to reheat, stirring once or twice. Transfer to a warm platter and top with the chicken breasts. Or, just plate separately. Serve immediately.
