Chicken Under a Zucchini Blanket

If you want to squeeze a vegetable in without being very obvious then a Zucchini blanket  is the way to go!  I thought this was delicious and a very picky husband also agreed!

Prep Time: 10 minutes   Total Time: 35 minutes    Serves:  2 people

Ingredients you need to cook this shit:

  • 12 oz. Yukon Potatoes
  • 1 Zucchini
  • 1/4 cup of Parmesan Cheese
  • 12 oz. Chicken Breast
  • 6 oz. of Green Beans
  • 2 TBSP Milk
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 TBSP Butter
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil

Directions you need to cook this shit:

  1. Wash and dry you shit. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Peel potatoes, then cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Grate zucchini on large holes of a grater.  Trim green beans ends.  Place shreds in the center of a clean kitchen or large paper towel. Gather towel corners and squeeze as much moisture as you can from zucchini into sink or bowl.  Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Mix parmesan and zucchini in a medium bowl and set aside. Place one chicken breast between two pieces of plastic wrap.  Pound with mallet, rolling pin, or heavy pan until 1/2 inch thick. Season all over with salt and pepper.  Repeat with other chicken breast.
  3. Place chicken breasts on a baking sheet and brush each with a drizzle of olive oil, then top with a thick layer of zucchini topping. Bake in oven until no longer pink in center, 12-15 minutes. Heat broiler to high or increase oven temperature to 500 degrees. Broil or bake until golden and crisp on top, about 2 minutes.
  4. While chicken bakes, place potatoes and a pinch of salt in a medium pot with enough water to cover by 2 inches.  Bring to a boil and cook until easily pierced by a knife, 10-12 minutes overall. About 3 minutes before potatoes are done, add green beans to pot and cook. (They should become tender at the same time as the potatoes)
  5. Remove green beans from pot with a slotted spoon. Drain potatoes and return to same pot along with 1 TBSP butter and 2 TBSP milk.  Mash with a potato masher or fork until very smooth, adding more milk as needed to achieve a creamy consistency.  Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Cut lemon into wedges.  Divide potatoes, chicken and green beans between plates.  Serve with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over.
