2 teaspoons vegetable oil

4 chicken breast halves (4 ounces each), boneless, skinless

1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper

2 cups ( 1/2-inch) cubed yellow squash

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken breast halves with salt and pepper. Cook chicken 4 minutes on each side; remove from the skillet and keep warm.

Reduce the heat to medium. Add the squash and zucchini to the skillet and cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Return the chicken to the pan.

In a small bowl whisk together the chicken broth, chives, lemon rind, lemon juice, cornstarch and honey mustard. Pour over the chicken and vegetables. Cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook 3 minutes. Makes 4 servings.
