This recipe could easily be a 5 star with a few additions; Thanks to other reviewer's suggestions and some of my own. Try tossing the cut up chicken in a little Italian dressing. I like the idea of quartering my vegetables instead and adding vidalia onion. I seasoned the veggies with garlic salt, pepper, and oregano. I also used a can of petite cut tomatoes instead , so you get a little bit with evey bite. I used colby-jack cheese- instead -just 1 cup and then sprinkled a little shredded parmesan over that. The results were incredible. I did have a lot of juice too from vegetables and chicken cooking. I took out several T. and then served garlic bread with the meal for "soaking" up the juices. This is a new favorite for us and is a light dish to serve!

This recipe was a really good idea but the timing and/or temperature need work. While the chicken and cheese came out fine, the vegetables were underdone. I even let it cook another 15 minutes and gav e up when the cheese started to blacken. This needs work. One of the things that should be worked on is what happens if you add ingredients, like thin sliced potatoes or carrots. Also, how about some spices here?! Without out even salt and pepper, this is BLAND! Like I said, it's a good idea, but needs work.

We were pleasantly surprised by this one! Had pre-cooked some chicken the night before so I chopped it into bite size pieces. I sauteed the zucchini & summer sq with 3/4 c chopped onion and about a tsp of oil, 1 clove pressed garlic, S & P and parsley. I also used some grated parmesan on top in addition to the mozarella. Since everything was cooked ahead, only had to bake about 25 min.

I used this recipe as a base for my dish and it turned out great- I used 2 yellow squash instead of 1 yellow, 1 zucchini because I didn't have a zucchini. My chicken breasts were in pieces but it worked fine. I added some olive oil, oregano, garlic powder on the chicken, and italian seasonings. I used the can of tomatoes like it called for but on top I sliced up fresh tomatoes and covered with oregano. I might change it up to add fresh tomatoes throughout because that made it really yummy. I changed the cheese to monterey jack which worked fine. I added some fresh garlic too. Next time I'll add mushrooms & an onion. It was really yummy.

Excellent! I had to make a few changes to fit what I had on hand but it came out great all the same. I used only zucchini and a can of crushed tomatoes and added some oregano for flavor. Basically it tastes somewhat like a cross between chicken parm & cacciatore. Good & simple to make, everyone enjoyed it. This one's a keeper!

This is very good! I tried it with extra zucchini and squash, Swiss cheese on top, and added Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. I thought the squash would be mushy after 45 minutes but it was perfect. Mine came out really watery so I will probably drain the tomatoes next time. Served with garlic bread to round out a great meal.

This was pretty good. I took some previous advice and marinated the chicken in Italian dressing, then also poured some on top of the chicken before baking, and I thought it was good. My husband said it could have used more flavor, so next time I'll just season the chicken with . . . whatever I have (parsley, chicken seasoning, sage, etc.).

Easy, tasty, and healthy!!! Unfortunately, the grocery store was out of zucchini (there must have been a big sale!) so I just used yellow squash, which I sauteed in olive oil and garlic for just a few minutes. This was delicious. Thanks so much :o)
