1. To make this Asado chicken breast recipe: In a bowl, combine paprika, cumin, chicken stock, lemon juice, onion powder, oregano, garlic, chili flakes, and olive oil. Taste and adjust salt and lemon before adding chicken breast.

2. Add in chicken breasts and coat all sides. Cover and marinate chicken breasts for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator. When ready to cook, remove chicken breasts from marinade and reserve the marinade for later.

3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet over medium-low heat and cook chicken breast on both sides, until internal temperature reads 165ºF (74ºC) on an instant-read thermometer, approx. 15 minutes. Remove chicken breast to a plate and keep warm.

4. Add the diced zucchini to the same pan and season with salt, pepper and red chili pepper flakes (if using), add a bit of oil if necessary. Saute zucchini for 2-3 minutes over medium-low, then add the remaining chicken marinade. Cook zucchini with the marinade sauce for 3-4 minutes, stirring from time to time, until the sauce has reduced a bit and zucchini are tender.

5. Divide sauteed zucchini and the sauce into plates or bowls and top with sliced chicken breasts. Serve the chicken and sauteed zucchini garnished with lemon slices, and fresh chopped parsley. Enjoy! An extra splash of lemon juice before serving the Asado chicken is highly recommended. Enjoy!

    I made this recipe for dinner and it turned out great. I did cut all ingredients in half bc its was just for 2 people. The flavors were perfect and my husband loved it. I will definitely be making it again. Thank you for sharing this recipe - I give it 10.

    I didn't taste the recipe, as it was a meal prep for my husbands lunches, but he said it was really good! I made it with taters instead of zucchini as those are what we had on hand. It smelled amazing while it was cooking, so I do plan on making this for myself eventually.

    Made this. Used 1 zucchini, 1 yellow squash, 1 small onion for the veggies. Everything else as the recipe called for. Soy sauce at the table for personal preference was an addition my husband added. It did add to the meal more than I expected it to. Very tasty, will make it again.
