Evie’s Zucchini Stuffed Chicken

My sister Evie, who is a great cook, but doesn’t have a blog, recently told me about some new recipes she had made. They sounded great and like the good blogging sister that I am, I told her she should take pictures and share what she did with my readers. A few weeks later recipes and pictures arrived in my inbox. Today, I am sharing the first of those recipes. Thanks Evie! 

If you have lots of zucchini coming from your garden right now, this is a perfect way to use it up. And I love the zucchini in it because it will keep the chicken very moist. 

Evie's Zucchini Stuffed Chicken

The last couple of months I felt that I have been stuck in a rut cooking the same few chicken recipes over and over again.  I decided to look for a few new recipes to try.  We ate some ‘okay’ meals, but I also found a couple great new ones.

When I first came across this original recipe, I admit I was a bit skeptical to try it.  I was afraid that the zucchini would be too bland in the filling. As it turns out, I was very wrong about that.  The zucchini added a ton of moisture, so the chicken breasts didn’t dry out and it was a nice compliment to the cheese and chicken.  I decided to brush seasoning over the chicken, too, which added great flavor.

Although this recipe has several steps, it was fairly simple to prepare.  It also looks a bit fancier than regular whole chicken breasts!  Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed this recipe and I’m sure I’ll be making it more frequently now that we starting to harvest our own zucchini.  I’ve learned I can never have too many good zucchini recipes.

    • I hope you enjoy it! I think it is a recipe you could easily change up, season different, etc. I can’t wait to try this one myself.

  2. this sounds delicious! can’t wait to try it.

  3. Looks like a great way to use up those extra large zucchini :)

  4. it’s summer time and , of course, several of the luckier people have squash issues. BTW I LOVED Evie’s Zucchini Stuffed Chicken! But back to my question. I see lot’s of zucchini related recipes but few for the yellow summer squash and am wondering if it is interchangeable with zucchini in recipes like zucchini bread, pie, etc? I have a killer zucchini (mock apple pie recipe) pie recipe and wonder if the yellow squash would interchange and be as good. I just tried a new zucchini bread recipe that has pineapple, dried cranberries and the option of cocoanut in it. It was a real keeper also. I will be waiting for your reply to my zucchini question and would love to see unusual or different recipes using this garden bonus, especially this time of year. Thanks,
