Serve chicken and sauce with salad and crusty bread.

If your frypan is ovenproof you can simply brown and set chicken aside. Make sauce, return chicken to pan and cook in oven for 15 minutes. Alternatively cover pan with lid and cook 10 minutes on the stove over medium heat.

Grate zucchini and add with onion if you want to hide them from the kids!
