Dinner Tonight

I came across this recipe on the Kitchen Frugality board on AOL and it sounded good so I decided to make it for dinner tonight. I have taken some pics of it while it is cooking and will post later. For now here is the recipe:

Chicken Breasts & Zucchini With Garlic Cream Sauce

1/4 cup butter
3 whole chicken breasts, halved
3 cups zucchini, sliced 1/8 in thick
1/2 cup green onions, diced

Garlic Cream Sauce

4 tbsp butter
1 tsp minced garlic
3 tbsp flour
1 pkg cream cheese (3 oz)
1 can chicken broth
1/2 tsp pepper

4 servings cooked Brown Rice.

In a 10" skillet, melt butter until sizzling, add chicken breasts.
Cook over med heat, turning once, until chicken is browned & fork tender.
Add zucchini & onions. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally,
until zucchini is crisply tender,
5-7 min.
Garlic cream sauce, in saucepan, melt 4 tbsp butter.
Add flour; continue cooking until bubbly.
Add remaining garlic cream ingredients except rice.

Serve zucchini & chicken over rice; pour sauce over chicken.

Here are pics of the prep. and the cooking of my dish:
The zucchini and onions
(i didn't have green onions so I used a reg. one)

The chicken with the veggies

The brown rice as it was cooking
The garlic cream sauce

The grand finish

I have to say this was a delicious dish and I will be making again. My whole family loved it, even my picky son Eric liked it and he hardly ever likes anything new.
