Baking Sheet
Measuring Spoons
Large Non-Stick Pan
Measuring Cups


  • Cut zucchini into 1/4-inch rounds.
  • Core, then cut pepper into 1-inch pieces.
  • Peel, then mince or grate garlic.
  • Zest half the lemon (whole lemon for 4 ppl). Cut both halves into wedges.
Start veggies
  • Add zucchini, peppers and 1 tbsp oil to an unlined baking sheet. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, use 2 baking sheets, with 1 tbsp oil per sheet.)
  • Season with salt, pepper and Dill-Garlic Spice Blend. Toss to combine. 
  • Roast in the middle of the oven, 5 min. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, roast in the top and middle of the oven, rotating sheets halfway through. Veggies will continue to roast in step 4.) 
Cook chicken
  • Meanwhile, pat chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and 2 tsp (4 tsp) Lemon-Pepper Seasoning.
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • When the pan is hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then chicken breast tenders. Sear until tenders are golden-brown and cooked through, 3-5 min per side.**
Finish veggies
  • Continue to roast in the middle of the oven until veggies are tender and chicken is cooked through, 10-12 min.**
Make lemon cream sauce
  • Meanwhile, reheat the same pan (from step 3) over medium.
  • When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter, then garlic. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 30 sec.
  • Add 1/4 cup (1/2 cup) water, cream, broth concentrate and remaining Lemon-Pepper Seasoning. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly, 2-3 min.
  • Remove the pan from heat, then stir in half the lemon zest.
Finish and serve
  • When veggies are done, sprinkle with remaining lemon zest. Toss gently to coat.
  • Divide chicken and veggies between plates.
  • Drizzle lemon cream sauce over chicken.
  • Squeeze a lemon wedge over top, if desired.

If you've opted to get chicken breast tenders, prepare and cook them in the same way the recipe instructs you to prepare and cook the chicken breast. Increase sear time to 3-5 min per side, until cooked through.** Skip the step to roast. Transfer tenders to a plate and cover to keep warm.


Plate chicken breast tenders as the recipe instructs you to plate the chicken breast, no need to slice.
