Tex Mex Chicken and Zucchini

Tex Mex Chicken and Zucchini

This Tex Mex chicken and zucchini is a variation of my black bean quinoa casserole with added chicken for a protein boost and quinoa replaced by zucchini. Everything is cooked within 30 minutes, right in one pan.

Tender chicken breast, soft black beans, sweet corn and squash, which is added at the very end to preserve the crunchiness
