Summer Succotash

Succotash is one of my favorite meals. The simple mixture of light and flavorful vegetables with a dash of cream and a sprinkle of spices is irresistibly delicious. The fact that it is quick, simple and fresh make it a spring and summer staple in our home. I'm sure there are a variety of ways to whip this meal up, but I'll fill you in on the way MAC and I prepared it.

3 tablespoons of butter
Seasoning (we used Lawry's)
2 chicken Breast chopped
1 bag of frozen Lima Beans
1 Red Pepper
1 Green Pepper
3 Ears of Corn
8 oz of Heavy Cream
Garlic Salt

We first prepared the Lima beans in a pot according to directions on the bag. While those were cooking, we put 1 1/2 tblsp butter in a large, deep sauté pan at medium heat and started the chicken (sprinkle your seasoning on prior to this). While the chicken was heating, we cooked corn in the microwave (3 mins on each side will cook it just like boiling, but much faster) and proceeded to cut the kernels off the husk. We also chopped the peppers into small dices and drained the Lima beans. Once the chicken had cooked through, we took it out of the sauté pan, added the remaining butter, and put all of the vegetables in the pan with some garlic salt sprinkled on for good measure. We let this sauté for just a few minutes before adding the cream and lastly the chicken to mix all of the flavors together.

This meal is healthy, delicious, easy, and provides a nice amount of leftovers! Can't get much better than that! Bon Appetit!
