Weekly Recipe- Cooking with Veggies

I am not going to lie- I am not a huge fan of vegetables.  I have to make a concious effort to plan them in our meals each week.  Last summer Daniel and I participated in a group garden at our school.  We were put in charge of weeding a huge plot of zucchini.  At first I could not think of anything besides zucchini bread to make with the zucchini.  Then my mother gave me this recipe- we ate it twice a week while we had zucchini from our garden!!  Hope you like it:

Zucchini Fajitas
1 small zucchini
1/2 cup onion (slivered or diced)
peppers (optional)
2 chicken breasts
Taco Seasoning
1/2 c. water
grated cheese

Cut chicken into bite size pieces and cook in a large frying pan.  While Chicken in frying, cut zucchini in thin, half circle pieces. (I would cut them in slices & then cut the piles of slices in half). 

Once chicken is done, add zucchini, peppers, onions, water & taco seasoning. 
Mix everything together.  Put a lid on the pan and let it simmer on medium heat.  (make sure to watch it so it does not go dry!) Simmer till zuchini & peppers are soft.  Add more water as needed.  Serve on tortillas and top with cheese. Enjoy!
