  1. Onions - Chop onions. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Corn / Tomatoes - If using frozen corn, defrost. If using fresh corn, slice kernels off cobs. Slice tomatoes in half. Store separately. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  3. Make herb butter - Chop garlic and cilantro. Heat butter (portion for chicken) in the microwave just until softened and starting to melt. Combine butter with garlic, cilantro, paprika, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  4. Chicken breasts - Slice into strips. Season with some salt and pepper and tenderize with a fork. (Can be done up to 1 day ahead)
  5. Lima beans - Defrost lima beans if using frozen.


  1. In a saucepan, combine lima beans, water, and butter (portion for succotash). Cover and cook over medium-high heat until lima beans are tender (~10 minutes for fresh and ~5 minutes for frozen). Remove the cover and continue cooking until excess water has cooked off. Add onions and corn and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until corn is tender, ~3 minutes. Add lemon juice. Season with some salt and pepper. Set aside, covered.
  2. While the succotash is cooking, toss chicken in flour (in a mixing bowl or plastic bag).
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add half the herb butter to the hot pan. Sear chicken on both sides, ~2 minutes per side.
  4. Add remaining herb butter to pan and scatter tomatoes around chicken. Saute everything together until tomatoes are falling apart and chicken is cooked through (and reaches an internal temperature of 165F / 74C).
  5. Enjoy chicken with tomatoes and sauce spooned over top and succotash on the side!

I must have used too big of a pan because I had no sauce at the end and I even 1.5x the herb butter. I used my cast iron skillet. Flavor was good, but not spectacular.

This was really good!! And very fast. We love the succotash, and the eggs with the tomatoes and herb-butter was amazing. We used less butter than it called for (probably about 1.5-2 tablespoons less for 4 servings) and we don't feel the flavor suffered at all.

Chicken was delicious! I used frozen edamame in place of Lima beans. Also would recommend sautéing the onions first when making the succotash. Delicious and light meal!

Simple, did meal prep this weekend and started with chicken breast tenders instead of whole breasts so it was quick, and all family members loved it. Didn’t have Lima beans, so subbed white kidney beans.
