Two great tastes in one casserole dish chicken and zucchini.

A hearty summertime meal we make often!

Chicken Parmesan Stuffed Zucchini Recipe

6 zucchini sliced lengthwise and hollowed out      
(save the insides for zucchini bread)
1 - 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
fresh chopped basil, parsley  (around 1 tablespoon each)
leftover roasted or rotisserie chicken off the bone or any kind of cooked chicken around 2 cups

Optional: instead of cheese use ricotta cheese mixed with mozzarella, 1 beaten egg and grated cheese

Tip: if you have breaded leftover chicken cutlets or use store bought they work great also. We use the roasted to cut calories without the breading on it.

shredded mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese grated
salt, pepper to taste
granulated garlic
olive oil
oregano dried if you like it
1 cup white wine Pino Grigio is what I use

 Grease a 13 x9 deep baking pan with cooking spray. Fill all the hollowed out squash with some roasted chicken. Pour the tomatoes over the whole pan evenly. Generously sprinkle shredded mozzarella over the top and grated cheese. 

Sprinkle with granulated garlic, herbs and drizzle olive oil over the top lightly.
Bake the stuffed squash covered for 1/2 hour. Remove cover and bake until soft and  cheese is browned and bubbling, around an hour on 400 degree preheated oven.


  1. What a great idea for leftover chicken! My mouth is watering just thinking about this!!!

  2. I love it! I've been seeing a lot of chicken recipes lately and I couldn't be more thrilled. I love cooking chicken because it's such a versatile meat. Thank you for this! :D

  3. Cooking for just the two of us, I usually have half a chicken left over many times. This is a nice way to use it.
