Tomatoes, Zucchini and Summer Squash, Oh My!

If your like me, at this time of the year you are blessed with an abundance of tomatoes, zucchini, and summer squash. We recently were recently given a nice bag full from Nate's grandfather. If your looking for a simple dish to use up your bounty of summer vegetables, here's an easy one.

Juicy Chicken and Summer Vegetables

Chicken (your choice, but we used legs)
Summer Squash
Salt and Pepper
Olive Oil (or oil of your choice)

In a skillet, heat a few tablespoons of olive oil. Generously season chicken with salt and pepper. Brown chicken on all sides until golden. Place chicken in a baking dish. Chop up tomatoes, zucchini, and summer squash and place in bowl. Add several whole garlic cloves. Toss with olive oil and generously season with salt and pepper. Arrange vegetables around chicken in baking dish. Squeeze lemon juice all over chicken and vegetables. Bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees, or until chicken is cooked and vegetables are tender. Enjoy!
