“I'm not sure where this recipe originated from, just that it's been a family favorite for many years. It's also another great way to use some of the zucchini from your summer garden! The use of a food processor for shredding the veggies makes for a quick prep time and if there is leftover vegetable mixture that won't fit in your bird, I just mound it in a corner of the pan to cook outside of the chicken.”
