4 servings


  • ¼ cup fat-free mayonnaise dressing or salad dressing

  • ½ teaspoon finely shredded lime peel or lemon peel

  • 1 medium zucchini or yellow summer squash (see Tip) cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices

  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce for chicken

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (1 to 1-1/4 pounds total)

  • 4 wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted


  1. For lime dressing: In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise dressing and lime peel. Cover with plastic wrap or foil and chill until serving time.

  2. Brush zucchini slices with 1 tablespoon of the Worcestershire sauce; set aside. Brush all sides of chicken with the remaining 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce.

  3. Place chicken on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 12 to 15 minutes or until no longer pink (170 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling. Add zucchini slices to grill for the last 6 minutes of grilling time for chicken, turning once and grilling until zucchini slices are softened and lightly browned.

  4. To serve, spread lime dressing onto cut sides of toasted buns. If desired, halve zucchini slices crosswise. Place chicken and zucchini slices on bun bottoms; add bun tops. Makes 4 servings.


Tip: For added color, use half of a medium zucchini and half of a medium yellow summer squash.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
