Zucchini-Stuffed Chicken

Serves: 8
Total Calories: 157


2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups zucchini, shredded
1 onion, finely chopped
1 (6-ounce) package herb-flavored stuffing mix
3/4 cup water
1 cup shredded Italian-style cheese blend
8 chicken leg quarters


Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add zucchini and onion; cook and stir 5 minutes, or until onion is tender. Remove from heat. Stir in stuffing mix, water and cheese until well blended; cover and set side. Carefully loosen skin on leg quarters to form a pocket; fill evenly with stuffing mixture. Arrange skin-side up in a greased shallow baking pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes, or until chicken juices run clear when pierced.

Tip: No peeking! When baking, every time the oven door is opened, the temperature drops 25 degrees.
