Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 medium bell peppers cut into strips (yellow, red or orange peppers work best)
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 tbspĀ  Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning adjust to taste

  • 2 large zucchini
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast cubed
  • 1 cup Unsweetened Original Almond Milk
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan divided

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. While the oil is heating coat the chicken with 1-2 tsp of Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning. When the oil is hot add your chicken to the pan.
