Chicken, Zucchini, & Corn Saute {30 Minute Meal!} | Fabtastic Eats It’s in the high 80’s here this week, so I haven’t exactly jumped on the soup and pumpkin bandwagon quite yet! We’re still consuming all the summer veggies and fruits, and grilling as frequently as possible! I suspect we’re not the only place with such gorgeous weather either?

Chicken, Zucchini, & Corn Saute {30 Minute Meal!} | Fabtastic Eats Corn and zucchini are one of my most favorite veggie combos! It never disappoints! This meal meets my trifecta for weeknight dinners; it’s healthy, delicious, and so easy, coming together in just 30 minutes! Plus the entire family will love it. Like most kids, mine can be a little temperamental about their veggies on occasion, but zucchini and corn are two that I never have to worry about…they’ll never complain, and with chicken included? My kids inhaled their entire plates..mom win!

So add this to your menu before the weather chills out to much, use up those beautiful zucchini, and you could even use corn on the cob here-even better! Enjoy!
