EASY One Skillet Italian Chicken – Full of healthy veggies, lean chicken and with minimal cleanup!


  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2), sliced in half
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups thinly sliced yellow onion
  • 1 large green bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced into half moons (about 4 cups sliced)
  • 2 teaspoons freshly minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 heaping tablespoon chopped fresh basil


  1. Season chicken with desired amounts of salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  2. Cook chicken until thoroughly cooked through, about 5-6 minutes on each side (time will depend upon thickness of chicken breasts). Remove chicken and place on a plate.
  3. Add onions and peppers to skillet and saute, stirring constantly until soft (about 4-5 minutes). Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and zucchini and continue to cook an additional 4 minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Add minced garlic and cook until fragrant (about 30 seconds).
  5. Add chicken broth, diced tomatoes with juice and Italian seasoning. Stir well to combine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer and simmer for 8 minutes. Return chicken to skillet and allow to cook for 2 additional minutes, or until chicken is warm. Season mixture with salt and pepper, if desired.
  6. Sprinkle with basil.
