Basil and Parmesan Crusted Chicken with Sauteed Zucchini and Tomatoes for the Whole Family

This recipe was a big hit with my husband and son. It's a super flavorful and healthy meal that's so easy to make. This meal is full of Vitamin A and C, calcium, folate, potassium, iron, zinc, and protein. This is for little one's 10+ months and Mommies and Daddies of all ages.

Here's what you need for 4 servings:

Basil and Parmesan Crusted Chicken:
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 tblsp dried basil leaves
1/2 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
4 lemon wedges
cooking spray

Mix basil and Parmesan cheese in a bowl. Dredge the chicken through the basil and Parmesan cheese mixture to coat both sides. Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium high heat. Place the chicken in the skillet and cook for 7 minutes on both sides. When chicken is done squeeze 1 lemon wedge over each piece of chicken. Serve and enjoy! Remember to cut into bite size pieces for your little one. (Serving size for your little one is about 1/2 chicken breast cut up).

Sauteed Zucchini and Tomatoes
4 medium zucchinis chopped
2 cups organic cherry tomatoes
2 garlic cloves minced
pinch of salt
1 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

Add oil to a large skillet and heat over medium high heat. Add minced garlic and cook for about a minute. Add chopped zucchini, pepper, Italian Seasoning, and a pinch of salt. Saute until tender about 8 to 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and toss. Saute for about 5 more minutes. Serve and enjoy!
