Servings
Ingredients Directions
  1. In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, cook chicken over medium-high heat until light brown, turning to brown evenly. Remove chicken from skillet. Drain off fat.
  2. Add wine, bouillon granules, and garlic to skillet. Bring to boiling; reduce heat.
  3. Boil gently, uncovered, about 3 minutes or until liquid is reduced by about half, scraping up any crusty browned bits from bottom of skillet.
  4. Stir in dried herbs (if using) and pepper. Return chicken to skillet.
  5. Add squash. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (180 degrees) and squash is nearly tender.
  6. Stir in beans, undrained tomatoes, and, if using, fresh oregano, thyme, and savory. Simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes more or until bean mixture is slightly thickened.
  7. To serve, spoon the bean mixture into shallow bowls. Place chicken on top of bean mixture. Sprinkle with parsley.
