Low-Point Chicken Parmesan Squash Boats

Yum
Our garden has really flourished this season and we have an abundant amount of squash and zucchini! We're never left wanting for fresh summer squash; however, I have had to do lots of homework researching delicious recipes we can use with all this squash. Come to find out, this recipe that I made up has been deemed a winner, at least to my family! Hope it's a winner for yours as well. Enjoy!


Low-Point Chicken Parmesan Squash Boats
Ingredients:
- 2 medium to large yellow summer squash or zucchini
- 2, 4 oz. chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
- 3 Tbs bread crumbs
- 3 Tbs butter (Land O Lakes Light), melted
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. kosher salt or sea salt
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan
Heat oven or grill to 400 degrees and bake or grill chicken breasts for 15 minutes (turning once or twice) until done. Chop into small pieces and set aside. Cut squash in half widthwise and then again in half lengthwise (leaving 4 pieces). Cut or scoop out squash from center, setting aside the hallow squash boats. Chop squash filling into small pieces. In a bowl, mix chopped squash with bread crumbs, butter, garlic, salt, pepper, and parmesan. Add pieces of chopped chicken and mix until combined. Spoon mixture back into squash boats and grill or bake on a piece of aluminum foil at 400 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes. Enjoy! If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
