Chicken Stuffed Zucchini Boats

The stuffed vegetables baked in an oven are the fine idea for a tasty and useful family lunch or a dinner. In the summer and in an early autumn the choice of vegetables is huge so the recipe can be changed depending on your flavoring preferences. Today I suggest preparing the zucchini stuffed with chicken and vegetables. The vegetables baked under a cheese crust turn out especially tasty and fragrant. For a stuffing I suggest to use boiled chicken fillet, it can be prepared in advance. At will meat can be fried together with vegetables.
