This flavorful, easy one-pan dinner comes together right in the skillet. Cooked chicken and zucchini mingle with savory pesto and mild-mannered cannellini beans for a dinner that’s sure to satisfy. The herb-flecked crumb topping brings some texture to the finished dish when run under the broiler for a bit of crisping.
