Preparation -- 15 minutes

RINSE the zucchini and chop into quite thick slices, if you'll divide them into too small pieces they will become mushy during cooking. RINSE the pepper, remove the seeds and also chop into quite large pieces.

PEEL the onion and garlic cloves, finely chop the garlic cloves and the onion into half thin rings. COOK the rice in water and salt. GRATE the peel of the limes and squeeze the juice of them.

SAVE the syrup of the peaches and chop the peaches into pieces. DIVIDE the broccoli into florets. REMOVE any excess fat or muscles from the chicken breasts and chop into pieces.
