Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle chicken with 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165 degrees F. Transfer to a plate.

  • Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, zucchini and onion to the pan. Cook, stirring, until starting to soften, about 2 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high and add wine. Cook, scraping up any browned bits, until the liquid has mostly evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, cream cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring to melt the cream cheese, for 5 minutes. Return the chicken to the pan and turn to coat with the sauce. Serve topped with basil.

I did not care for this dish. I was expecting a dreamy and creamy Italian chicken dish, as described in previous reviews, but the sauce was missing some flavor and was too thin. Read More

My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. Very healthy tasting. I had a little bit of cooked penne pasta in my fridge I threw in along with a bit of shredded Parmesan cheese. I think adding those items helped thicken the sauce along with letting it sit covered on my stove for a bit. Will definitely be making again. Read More

So easy and delicious! I substituted goat cheese for cream cheese because we didn’t have cream cheese on hand. My husband loved it, as did I. Read More

Oh my, this was some amazing eats! I’ve never posted to an online recipe in which I try many, but as a first, I must say I do highly recommend! I followed the recipe to a T. However, I added a cup of orzo cooked in chicken broth only to add a little extra filling . The reviews from the fam I received was that the chicken was very tender and flavorful; and that it made it to the “home recipe book”. SOLD! Thank you so much for sharing it was delicious! Read More
