Southwestern Grilled Chicken & Vegetables

I was not really in the mood to think about cooking tonight. I had a lot of other things on my mind today. However, this was really easy, delicious, and required little thought! I especially loved how the veggies turned out! Hope you enjoy! :-)

4 chicken breasts, skinless & boneless

Rub ingredients: (combine all spices)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
red pepper flakes (add however much to your liking)
dash paprika

Yellow and green zucchini, sliced
1/2 onion, sliced thin
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced thin
2 cloves garlic
1/4 C + chopped cilantro
splash chicken broth (organic, low sodium)
1 tsp olive oil

Generously rub spice ingredients over both sides of chicken breasts. Heat grill, or skillet, over medium-high heat, with some olive oil, and grill chicken breast for about 5-7 minutes on each side (until thoroughly cooked). Serve with side of southwestern-style veggies.

Saute garlic, onion, and peppers in olive oil. Add zucchini and a some chicken broth. Cover and cook until JUST tender (about 5 minutes). Toss with cilantro and serve with chicken breasts!

They both cook pretty quick, and they both cook at the same times! But this is an easy & tasty 30-minute meal. Chances are you already have most these paleo ingredients and the spices in your kitchen! :-)
