Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Quarter the zucchini lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Peel 2 cloves of garlic. Roughly chop one clove. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the remaining clove into a paste. Halve the tomatoes. Place in a bowl; add the chopped garlic. Season with salt and pepper; stir to combine.

2 Cook & mash the potatoes

Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water. Cook 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the crème fraîche. Using a fork or potato masher, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.

3 Cook the chicken

Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and half the Italian seasoning. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board. 

*The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 165°F for chicken.

Cook & glaze the vegetables
5 Cook & glaze the vegetables

In the pan of reserved fond, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the zucchini pieces in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the seasoned tomatoes. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Carefully add half the vinegar (you will have extra). Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the vegetables are coated and most of the liquid has cooked off. Turn off the heat.
