As I was looking through my fridge yesterday wondering what to make for lunch, I thought “what could I combine in a new way today?” And this is what I came up with. The papaya is a wonderful compliment to the zucchini, adding a little sweetness my daughters just loves. It’s perfect for a light summer lunch.
Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 to 30 minutes
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 medium sweet onion, chopped
- 8 to 12 organic chicken tenderloins
- 4 medium zucchinis
- 1/2 almost ripe papaya
- 1/2 cup organic chicken broth
- salt and pepper to taste
- optional 1 to 2 tbsp chia seeds or sesame seeds for garnish
Heat coconut oil in a large skillet and add onion. Sauté on medium until translucent.
Add chicken tenderloins and brown on both sides.
cube zucchinis and papaya. Add to chicken. Sauté about 2 minutes.
Add chicken broth, salt and pepper. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until chicken is fully cooked and vegetables tender.
Serve hot and sprinkle with chia or sesame seeds if desired.
