1 pound chicken breast tenderloins
1 cup unsalted corn kernels
1 orange bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 small yellow onion
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil

Step 2: Prepare the Vegetables
Prepare the vegetables by carefully dicing them with a well-sharpened knife. Store in bowls until ready to use.
Step 3: Prepare the Chicken Tenderloins
Prepare the chicken tenderloins by carefully cutting into uniform, 1 inch pieces. Be sure to use a different cutting board than the one used to cut vegetables to avoid cross-contamination.

Step 5: Add the Vegetables
Add all of the diced vegetables to the saucepan. Stir to combine thoroughly. Sprinkle with salt. Continue to cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are fork tender.
