Updated August 12, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 to 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 bag (1 lb) frozen broccoli, cauliflower and carrots

Steps

  • 1
    Mix thyme, salt and pepper; sprinkle over chicken and set aside.
  • 2
    In 12-inch skillet, heat butter and oil over medium heat. Cook garlic in butter mixture 1 to 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add chicken. Cook uncovered 8 to 12 minutes, turning once, until light golden brown.
  • 3
    Stir in frozen vegetables. Cover; cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are hot and crisp-tender and juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).

  • If fresh thyme is not available, 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves can be substituted.
  • If you prefer, use 4 cups cut-up assorted fresh vegetables, such as carrots, bell peppers, onions, broccoli and yellow summer squash, instead of the frozen vegetables.
