Recipe Ingredients for Chicken with squash and sun dried tomatoes

4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 yellow squash
1 tsp salt
1 tablespoon pine nuts
429 g boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
1 tsp Freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup All-purpose flour
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, torn
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup ricotta cheese

Recipe Directions for Chicken with squash and sun dried tomatoes

  1. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over the squash halves in a microwave-safe bowl and sprinkle with salt. Cover with a microwave-safe plate and cook on high for 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, toast the pine nuts in a skillet over high heat, about 1 minute; transfer to a bowl and add the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil to the skillet. Season the chicken cutlets with salt and pepper and dredge in the flour, shaking off the excess. Add to the skillet and cook until brown on one side, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the chicken, add the garlic and cook 2 more minutes. Remove the squash from the microwave, cool slightly and slice into chunks. Reduce the skillet heat to medium-low; add the sun-dried tomatoes, squash, basil, nuts and chicken broth to the skillet and bring to a simmer.

  3. Transfer the chicken to plates; top each with ricotta and the squash mixture.
