  • 2 In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in oil 6 to 10 minutes, turning once, until golden brown on outside and juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Remove chicken from skillet; cover to keep warm.

Tips  

You can use summer squash in place of the zucchini if you like.

Change up the spice level by the type of salsa you use. Mild for less spice and hot for extra-spicy flavor.
