A note about serious food allergies
A meal with this many components, this many unique flavors, must take hours? Nope! Coming together in fifteen minutes, there's succulent chicken with a drop of creamy heat and fresh zucchini and corn, with a chili lime butter on top. This meal takes less time to cook then it took the description writer to come up with a good adjective for chicken. (Succulent pretty much covers it.)
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient

If using filet mignon, follow same instructions as chicken in Step 2, cooking until filets reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-8 minutes per side.
Broil the Corn and Zucchini
Place corn, 1 tsp. olive oil, and ¼ tsp. salt on one side of prepared baking sheet. Roll corn to coat. Place under hot broiler and broil, 5 minutes.
Remove from oven and carefully turn corn. Use a utensil! Combine zucchini, 1 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl. Place zucchini on empty side of baking sheet in a single layer and top with panko and a pinch of chili powder. (The rest is yours to do with as you please!) Broil again until lightly browned, 8-10 minutes.
Keep an eye on oven as vegetables may burn easily under broiler.
While corn and zucchini broil, cook chicken
