  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 small onion, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 bell pepper, diced (choose a color you prefer)

  • 1 zucchini, diced

  • 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes, no added sugar

  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the diced chicken breasts and cook until browned on all sides. Remove the chicken from the pot and set aside.

  2. In the same pot, add the onion and garlic. Sauté until the onion becomes translucent and the garlic becomes fragrant.

  3. Add the bell pepper and zucchini to the pot and cook for a few minutes until they start to soften.

  4. Return the chicken to the pot and add the diced tomatoes (with their juice), chicken broth, chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.

  5. Bring the stew to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and let it simmer for about 20-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the flavors have melded together.

  6. Taste and adjust the seasonings if needed.

  7. Serve the stew hot, garnished with fresh cilantro.
