"I made up this salad because our garden is simply overflowing with zucchini! We ate it as a main dish for dinner tonight with Italian seasoning-covered rolls on the side, but it could easily be eaten as a side dish."

  1. Season both sides of chicken breasts with salt and black pepper.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook chicken breasts in the hot oil until they are no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 5 to 10 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a breast should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Cut chicken into 1/2-inch cubes and transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Heat remaining 4 tablespoons olive oil in the same skillet over medium heat; cook and stir zucchini in the hot oil until slightly tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper. Transfer zucchini to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  4. Mix zucchini, garbanzo beans, olives, artichoke hearts, and Parmesan cheese with chicken; toss to combine. Chill in refrigerator before serving, about 1 hour.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • The zucchini could also be basted with olive oil and then barbecued or broiled in oven. Also the cooking time for the zucchini is entirely up to the cook. Do you like your zucchini extremely crisp or cooked all the way through? Feel free to change the quantities of ingredients to suite your taste!

I made this recipe without the chicken. When I had it for lunch I thought it was not good at all as a cold salad. I believe it would be much better warmed. The other reviews mentioned eating it ...

This "salad" was amazing. I agree that it's more of a main dish, and I also added garlic (just a given in my household). I also left out the beans cause the kids don't care for them. I tried it ...

Really good. I used less of the veggie/salad ingredients because I wanted to make sure it was hearty enough for a main dish for two, and even with two chicken breasts we easily had enough for f...

Mmm Good and creative recipe, thanks for sharing it.

I removed the chicken and cheese to make it more veggie focused. Served it warm as a side dish. It was good even with these omissions and changes.

I've made this a few times...if you'd like some carbs, I have done it with brown rice and with whole wheat bow tie pasta and also with quinoa. When I use quinoa, I also add diced avocado because...

Very nice and easy dinner salad. Had pepperoncini peppers screaming at me in my fridge so chopped up a few of those and wish I had some grape tomatoes to add as well. As I am a garlic fiend, ...
