Crock-Pot Italian Chicken & Zucchini
If your garden is bursting at the seams with more zucchini (or squash) than you know what to do with your going to love this super easy and tasty recipe.
Start with a jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce, or even use homemade if you prefer. I used 2 medium sized zucchini’s but you could also use one zucchini and one yellow squash for a fun color and flavor.
Boneless skinless chicken breasts are then simmered away in the spaghetti sauce along with some extra seasonings, onions and the zucchini.
At the end of cooking some lovely cheese is added and allowed to get all melty. Parmesan cheese is what I used because it goes perfectly with the Italian flavors but feel free to use whatever cheese floats your boat. Swiss, cheddar or mozzarella…go for it!
And because you all know I like my recipes to be adaptable…feel free to sneak in some diced bell peppers, fresh tomatoes, cubed carrots or even mushrooms…
You can totally eat this veggie loaded chicken dish as is (perhaps with a nice side salad) but I like to serve it over some cooked noodles or pasta. I just happened to have egg noodles in the pantry but use whatever pasta you have… spaghetti, fettuccine or linguine noodles will work great.
Don’t be afraid to play with the recipe to what your family enjoys or what you have on hand, since it’s so flexible. My family all approved (two thumbs up!) of the recipe and hope we have it again really soon…because you know that the garden is going to be putting out a ton more zucchini!
