Description

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 breasts (cut into cubes)
250 grams cooked ham
1 bunch parsley
1 onions
2 garlic cloves (peeled)
3 pepper
1 kilogram zucchini
1 kilogram zucchini
2 eggs
rice (Some raw, for the tomatoes only)
3 sprigs fresh thyme

Directions

1In 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.
2Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
3Place 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.
4With 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.
5Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Serve with white rice or a green salad.
