Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Grate the cheese on the small side of a box grater. Halve the zucchini lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Halve the tomatoes. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then medium dice. Peel 2 cloves of garlic; roughly chop 1 clove. Using the flat side of your knife, smash the remaining clove once. In a bowl, combine the halved tomatoes, diced peppers, and chopped garlic.

2 Make the cheesy breadcrumbs:

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the breadcrumbs and smashed garlic clove. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the breadcrumbs are lightly browned. Transfer to a bowl. When cool enough to handle, remove and discard the garlic clove. Stir in the grated cheese. Wipe out the pan.

3 Cook the chicken:

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and the Italian seasoning; toss to coat. In the same pan, heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add half the broth (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the chicken is coated and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

4 Cook the vegetables:

Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil to the pan of reserved fond; heat on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced zucchini in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned.
