  • 1
    Mix lime juice and chili powder in medium glass or plastic bowl; stir in chicken. Cover and refrigerate 15 minutes. Cut zucchini and yellow squash into thin slices.
  • 2
    Heat 12-inch skillet or wok over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil; rotate skillet to coat side.
  • 3
    Add chicken and marinade; stir-fry until chicken is no longer pink in centre. Remove from skillet. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil; rotate skillet to coat side. Add zucchini and yellow squash; stir-fry about 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Add chicken, picante sauce and cilantro; cook and stir until hot.

Expert Tips

  • Did You Know: Marinating--even for as little as 15 minutes--adds flavour and makes for juicier chicken. The acid in the marinade helps break down chicken's tough muscle fibers.
  • Success: Make sure not to overcrowd your skillet; adding too many stir-fry ingredients at once brings down the temperature. If you have too many ingredients for your pan, cook ingredients in batches.
