Easy Chicken and Zucchini Recipes

In this article you will discover a recipe for pumpkin stuffed with chicken in tomato sauce, in the oven, presented with step-by-step images, list of ingredients and how to prepare a tasty and seasonal food.

This delicious dish, pumpkin stuffed with chicken in tomato sauce, in the oven, is related in taste and flavor to another recipe for pumpkin published some time ago, the wonderful pumpkin “parmesan” – layers of fine slices of pumpkin alternating with cheese and tomato sauce. This time, I added some meat to the list of ingredients. I used minced chicken and obviously the food can be made with other types of meat. My recommendation would be to use some lean meat (maybe veal) to get a light calorie-friendly dish. After all, it’s summer and we really don’t need very consistent dishes, instead we can enjoy very fragrant dishes.

The recipe is not complicated, it does not have too long a preparation time and the result is absolutely delightful. My husband, who is more impressed by a good steak than a pumpkin, devoured half a tray. That says a lot.

Other recipes with pumpkin in the same note, which I recommend with all confidence, would be the delicious pumpkin pudding with cheese but also the appetizer tart with pumpkin and goat cheese. But I don’t want to distract you too much from the subject, today it’s about pumpkins stuffed with chicken in tomato sauce, let’s get to work!
