Chicken and veggies cooked in a skillet in under 15 minutes, this quick and easy healthy dish is great for dinner or meal-prepping and can be customized too!
Ever since I shared my 15-minute chicken and veggies a few months back, I’ve gotten a few requests for the stove-top version so here it is! Now you can make the chicken and veggies but on the stove-top instead of the oven.
The whole dish comes together very quickly and effortlessly. I would say the only prep in this dish is just chopping all the chicken and veggies. You can also prep the chicken and veggies ahead of time and freeze them in ziplock bags (check out the post on how to do that here) or you can cook them and store them in meal-prep containers in the fridge.
I used Italian seasoning as the primary seasoning but taco, cajun, bbq, or even ranch seasoning will work too! If you want to go the extra step, try adding bbq sauce or your favorite Asian stir-fry sauce!
- 2 tablespoons olive oil or oil of choice
- 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into ½-inch-thick slices
- 2 cups broccoli florets
- 1 large zucchini cut into slices
- 1 medium bell peppers cut into ½-inch-thick slices
- 1 medium yellow onion halved and cut into ½-inch-thick slices
- 3-4 cloves garlic minced or crushed
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning or your favorite seasoning blend!
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large skillet to medium, high heat. Add the chicken, veggies, garlic, and spices. Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the veggies are soft and tender and the chicken is golden and cooked through.
- Serve with rice, pasta, toasted bread or eat as is for a low-carb meal!
anyone know the macros?
What kind of Italian dressing was used for this meal?
I can’t wait to make this recipe!
I swapped the chicken out for tofu and added Sriracha– delicious!

I looked up how many grams of carbohydrates are in 1/2 cup of rice and if this is going to be a low carb meal, there are 43 g of carbohydrates in 1/2 cup of white rice.
Use cauliflower rice. It’s low in carbs and easy to prepare

Your recipe looks simple & very delicious tha best part of this it’s healthy!!!!
Wait when they mean 2 cups of broccoli what do they mean? Like a putting broccoli in cups or measure out 16 ounces of broccoli. Becasue 2 cups seems to be a lot and and needs a second pan.
16 oz is fine!
Delicious food And healthy thank you

What is considered a serving with this meal?
That’s what I want to know. What is the serving size?
Can’t wait to try it
Easiest dinner recipe ever! And super delicious!
My husband loved this over rice. I added a little hot sauce.
Gretchen Ritter says
Love this recipe! I swapped out yellow squash for broccoli only because broccoli isn’t my favorite and used 1 orange bell pepper. I tossed everything in Italian dressing, which gave it amazing flavor. Note: Prep time is actually about 25-30 minutes to chop everything including chicken. Not sure how they figure prep time is only five minutes.

@ Gretchen: That’s for those samurai chef’s with their flying knives. For us normal folks your estimate seems more likely.
@season01: It’s not you; it’s this crazy entry form. Apparently what you post comes out okay, but it is a little disconcerting to see it coming out all caps in the comment field as you type.
Oh, and @ Layla: Great recipe! Healthy, delicious, and QUICK! I made it exactly as shown except I added thick-sliced fresh mushrooms. yummy! THANKS!
You’re so funny, John! Yes, I cut super fast so I assume everyone does the same 😀 I’m glad you enjoyed the dish, thanks for stopping by!
