  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 2 (5 ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed

  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 4 green onions, chopped

  • 2 green zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and into 1/4-inch slices

  • 8 large fresh mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat and cook chicken until slightly browned, stirring frequently, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a plate. Cover with foil or a bowl to keep warm.

  2. Heat olive oil in the same skillet over medium heat and cook green onions until soft, about 2 minutes. Add zucchini slices and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and stir to combine. Return chicken to the skillet and sprinkle with flour. Stir in cream and cook until sauce has thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
