Easy Chicken Zucchini Saute

This is a recipe we use a lot in the summer when we have some zucchini in the garden. The only draw back is having to cook everything in steps so it can be a bit time consuming, but its well worth it! I had to estimate on the preparation time, and believe it’s a low-carb meal.
