Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the zucchini

  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, arrange the zucchini in a single layer, season with salt and pepper, and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. Do not clean the pan. While the zucchini is cooking, start preparing the garlic and chicken.


Prep and cook the chicken

  • Finely chop, press, or grate the garlic.
  • Chicken strips: Cut a small corner from the chicken packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper and half the garlic-herb blend; save the remaining blend for another use.
  • Chicken breasts: Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; cut the chicken into 1-inch strips. Season with salt and pepper and half the garlic-herb blend; save the remaining blend for another use.

In the same pan used for the zucchini, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, stirring once or twice, until lightly browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in the garlic, then remove from the heat. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the salad.


Make the kale and zucchini salad

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].

In a medium bowl, combine the kale, zucchini, onion, and Mediterranean lemon dressing and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the kale and zucchini salad to individual plates, top with chicken, and serve.
