Zucchini are the perfect vegetable to stuff with a variety of ingredients. In this recipe, lean chicken breast and smoky ham are paired with rice, peppers, and garlic for an incredibly flavorful meal. Eggs act as a binder and add a little bit of extra protein, while thyme makes for a delicious finishing touch.

Ingredients

  • 1 chicken breast (cut into cubes)
  • 250 grams cooked ham
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 1 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves (peeled)
  • 3 peppers
  • 1 kilogram zucchinis
  • 1 kilogram zucchinis
  • 2 eggs
  • rice (Some raw, for the tomatoes only)
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme

Directions

  1. In the mixer bowl or chopper, finely chop the chicken with the ham, parsley, garlic, and onion (do in batches if necessary). Pour the mixture into a bowl, add the eggs, and thyme leaves. Add salt and pepper. Keep the stuffing in a cool place while you prepare vegetables.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Place in large quantity of boiling water for 5 minutes. Refresh in cold water and cut in half lengthwise. With a spoon, dig out the zucchini halves to remove the seeds and make a "trench". Do not dig too much. Divide the stuffing between the zucchini and place in a baking dish.
  4. With a knife, cut a "hat" off the top of the tomatoes. Remove the seeds and dig gently. Arrange the dug tomatoes head down on a plate to drain. Before filling, add a teaspoon of raw rice on the bottom, then stuff them. The rice will cook absorbing the excess moisture. Replace each hat on its tomato. Arrange the tomatoes in a baking dish. Using a knife, cut a "hat" off top of the peppers. Remove the seeds and the white membranes from each pepper. Stuff them and put the hat back on each pepper. Arrange the peppers in a baking dish.
  5. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Serve with white rice or a green salad.

These were so good right out of the oven. It was nice to stuff a variety of vegetables to give guests a choice. Keep an eye on the oven, however, as they are done cooking at different times. The peppers especially seemed to take a bit longer.
