This Chicken and Zucchini Casserole is a family friendly meal that is a great way to use up zucchini from the garden! Simple to make and packed with flavor, you’ll definitely want to add this to your meal plan!
Is there anything better than a casserole?? Well, okay, perhaps that’s a bit extreme….but come on, casseroles are SO convenient and family friendly! Years ago, I made various casseroles weekly. I loved it because I would prep dinner in the morning and simply pop it in the oven come evening. Well, after weeks upon weeks (perhaps even months) of this cycle, finally, my hubby requested I changed things up. He even volunteered to cook more often, haha!
If you scroll through the blog, you’ll find TONS of casseroles thanks to that phase in my mom life. However, now that my kids are a bit older, I love branching out and trying new things. Yes, we still love a good casserole, but its more of a once a month type thing these days. Plus, with summer heat here, I love grilling just about everything I can!
This past week was crazy! We had our refrigerator go out (thank God for a back up one in the garage), but our air conditioning also went out! Well, one of two units to be more specific. Living in Houston, where temps were in the upper 90’s….our one unit struggled to keep things cool and it was definitely a week that I wouldn’t want to repeat.
Only having an outdoor refrigerator made dinner prep a tad more difficult because I had to keep going in and out of the garage to grab a missing ingredient. I decided to make a zucchini casserole to use up the produce I had on hand, but to also allow myself to prep dinner in the morning.
Looking back on it, perhaps I should have stuck to grilling dinner since we were down one air conditioning unit, but nonetheless, I whipped this up.
Using my Instant Pot to cook some chicken breasts quickly, I had this prepped and ready to go in less than 20 minutes! I popped the lid on and in the refrigerator it went. Come dinnertime, I put this in the oven and served some rolls with it!
Even my non casserole loving husband enjoyed this! The kids requested the leftovers for dinner the next day!
Seasoned chicken, diced onion, zucchini, and stuffing combined into this casserole made for a great meal! Perfect if you have company over, want to bring dinner to someone, etc. You can even make an extra casserole to freeze for later!
