  1. 1

    Roast the Red Bell Pepper

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into four pieces. Place peppers, cut side down, on prepared baking sheet and drizzle with 2 tsp. olive oil. Broil under hot broiler until peppers are charred and tender, 10-14 minutes. Keep an eye on the broiler! Check vegetables halfway through cook time to avoid burning While peppers broil, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim zucchini ends and halve lengthwise. Cut each half lengthwise into 3 pieces. Coarsely chop cilantro (no need to stem). Finely chop mango. If mango is frozen, rinse under cold water before chopping. Peel and mince shallot. Mince garlic. Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with seasoned salt.

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

    Reduce oven temperature to 425 degrees. Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add chicken to hot pan. Cook undisturbed until browned on one side, 4-5 minutes. Transfer chicken, seared side up, to baking sheet used to roast peppers. Wipe pan clean and reserve. Roast until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes. While chicken roasts, cook zucchini.

  4. 4

    Cook the Zucchini

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add zucchini and a pinch of salt to hot pan and cook undisturbed, 8 minutes, stirring once halfway through. Add garlic and stir constantly until aromatic, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner. Sprinkle with cilantro.

  5. 5

    Make Salsa and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook chicken to medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil, shallot, and a pinch of salt to hot pan and stir occasionally until shallot is tender, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in vinegar, red bell pepper, mango, and ginger. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping chicken with salsa. Bon appétit!
