Sauteed Squash Dinner

I just finished a yummy early dinner. I needed to use up some of the winter squash & zucchini that I got from my egg farmer the other day, so this is what I came up with. This served 2.

2 small chicken breasts
2 small organic winter squashes, sliced
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1 Tablespoon organic olive oil
pinch salt
pinch black pepper
1/4 teaspoon thyme
3 dehydrated basil leaves, crumbled
2-inch sprig of fresh rosemary, leaves pulled from stalk
1 Tablespoon Newman's Own Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing
2 Mi Abuelita Bonita Spinach & Onion flour tortillas

Bake the chicken breasts in 350F oven for about 10 minutes. Cut into small pieces.
Cover bottom of large cast iron skillet with olive oil. Add vegetables & chicken. Stir to cover them in oil. Cook on medium-low until slightly browned & the onion is transluscent. Add salt, pepper & herbs. Stir until thoroughly cooked. Add vinaigrette. Serve with warmed tortilla.
