2 tablespoons unseasoned bread crumbs, dry
4 (4-ounce) boneless chicken breasts, flattened 1/4 inch
PAMŽ No-Stick Cooking Spray
2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
1 small zucchini, 1 1/2" x 1/4" strips
1/2 cup sliced red bell pepper, 2" x 1/4" strips
1/2 cup sliced red onion, thinly sliced
1 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves
1/8 teaspoon crushed red peppers
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

Place bread crumbs in shallow dish. Dredge chicken in bread crumbs to coat. Spray 12-inch nonstick skillet with nonstick vegetable cooking spray. Add 1 teaspoon oil. Heat oil over medium heat.
Add chicken. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes, or just until meat is no longer pink and juices run clear, turning chicken over once. Remove chicken from pan. Cover to keep warm. Set aside.
Combine remaining 1 teaspoon oil, the zucchini, pepper strips, onion, garlic, rosemary and red pepper flakes in same skillet. Cook over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, or until vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring frequently. Whisk flour with the chicken broth and the lemon juice and stir into the zucchini mixture.
Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until mixture thickens and bubbles, stirring frequently.
Return chicken to skillet. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until chicken is hot. Remove from heat. Serve chicken topped with vegetables. Garnish with lemon peel and lemon wedges, if desired.
