Chicken, Zucchini and Feta - An Amazing Combination

It was one of those days when you are hungry but you don't know what to eat.  I opened the refrigerator door, spied some leftover grilled chicken and some zucchini.  That's all it took.  Grabbing some garlic, a pepper and some feta cheese I set to work making a delicious dish that made my mouth water just thinking about it.

Chicken, Zucchini and Feta

1 - 2 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped (great use for leftover grilled chicken)
1 medium green zucchini, sliced and chopped
1/2 of a large, yellow, red or orange bell pepper
2 T feta cheese, crumbled
olive oil
1/2 t fresh, minced or chopped garlic
salt and pepper to taste
*optional - onion

In a saucepan on the stove heat about a tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter.  Add the zucchini and bell pepper and cook until the edges start to turn golden brown.  If you wish to add about 1/4 cup chopped onion as well, you would cook it with the pepper and zucchini.  Add the chicken pieces and garlic, and cook over medium high heat until the chicken is warmed through.  Season with salt and pepper.  Remove to a serving plate and sprinkle with half the feta cheese.  (Or with a third or fourth of the cheese depending if you are feeding 2, 3 or 4 people with this recipe.  It makes enough for two but can be made to feed up to 4 if it's a small side dish to an entree.
