  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Melt butter in medium saucepan on medium heat. Add zucchini and onion; cook and stir 5 min. or until onion is tender. Remove from heat. Stir in water, stuffing mix and cheese until well blended. Cover and set aside.
  • Carefully insert fingers between the meat and skin of each chicken leg to form a pocket. Fill pockets evenly with the stuffing mixture. Place, filled sides up, on baking sheet.
  • Bake 45 to 50 min. or until chicken is cooked through.

Healthy Living

For a lower fat version substitute boneless skinless chicken breasts for the chicken legs. To make a pocket for the stuffing, horizontally insert knife into thickest part of meat and cut a wide deep pocket, being careful to not cut all of the way through the breast. Press stuffing mixture evenly into pockets. Bake 30 min. or until chicken is cooked through.

    Wonderful recipe! My whole family loves it! I substituted shredded apples for shredded zucchini and it was fabulous!

    I used both chicken breasts and legs. It was very tasty and moist. I was afraid it might be a bit dried out but not at all! We had it with some Egg Noodles.
