Summer Squash and Chicken Skillet Recipe

This is a simple meal I throw together all summer long.  It’s another great way to use up leftover chicken.  This week I used leftover Rotisserie Chicken in the CrockPot.  Just chop up an onion and summer squash and stir-fry it with some chicken and your favorite seasonings.  It’s quick, easy, healthy and frugal.  It’s really cheap if you use squash from your garden or better yet your in-law’s garden.  🙂  I’ll admit that after a winter without squash, it takes the kids a meal or two to get used to it’s slimy texture.  But generally 3 out 4 kids give this meal a thumbs up.


  • 1-2 Tbsp Palm Shortening or oil of your choice
  • 1 Sweet Onion, chopped
  • 6 Summer Squash, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Tamari Sauce (Soy-free recipes here and here)
  • Garlic Powder to taste
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 2-3 Cups Cooked Chicken pieces


1.  Heat oil in skillet and add onions.  Cook until clear.

2.  Add squash, tamari sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper and cook just until squash is tender.

3.  Add chicken and heat through.  Serve immediately.
