Abuelo's Chicken Zucchini



















Abuelo's Chicken Zucchini
Copycat Recipe


1/4 cup butter
3 whole chicken breasts, halved
3 cups zucchini, sliced 1/8-inch thick
1/2 cup diced green onions

Garlic Cream:

2 tablespoons flour
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons Creole seasoning, or to taste
freshly ground black pepper
1 1/4 cups half-and-half or whole milk
3 to 4 drops Tabasco or other hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste


Chicken:  In skillet, melt 1/4 cup butter; add chicken breasts. Cook, turning once, until chicken is browned and fork tender. Add zucchini and onions. Continue cooking, stirring until zucchini is crisp-tender.


Cream Sauce:  Add the flour gradually, stirring constantly. Once all the flour is blended in, gradually stir in the milk, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Once all the milk has been added, continue to stir and cook over low heat until the sauce thickens; remove from heat and stir in the Tabasco, creole seasoning, salt and peper to taste.

NOTES
This is pretty served on a bed of rice - layer the zucchini and then the chicken breasts on top then pour sauce over each chicken breast.
