Add zucchini and yellow squash; stir-fry about 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Add chicken, picante sauce and cilantro; cook and stir until hot.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Marinating--even for as little as 15 minutes--adds flavor and makes for juicier chicken. The acid in the marinade helps break down chicken's tough muscle fibers.

Make sure not to overcrowd your skillet; adding too many stir-fry ingredients at once brings down the temperature. If you have too many ingredients for your pan, cook ingredients in batches.
