One of the things we love are simple meals- and Basil Chicken and Vegetables is as simple as it gets. 

Two of the ingredients that we almost always have around the house are chicken and vegetables, so when we’re scrambling- this recipe is a go-to. But don’t be fooled. This Basil Chicken and Vegetable recipe may have ridiculously simple ingredients but it’s definitely not lacking in the flavor department.

If you dig fresh Italian flavor and crave light and simple dinners, then this is on the menu tonight! It’s super easy to make and a great way to use leftover chicken.

Put it this way, if you don’t feel like spiralizing another zucchini tonight- then don’t. Go old school and just slice it like your mama used to.

If you love zucchini (not spiralized) then check out our beach bowl recipe — it’s perfect for summer!
