Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really enjoyed this recipe! I really enjoyed this recipe! It was quick, easy and very tasty. Even the kids liked it, though zucchini is not their favorite vegetable. I used a little extra dressing and pasta sauce to make it "saucier" and it was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good! Very good! A new favorite of mine, can't wait to make this again! The only thing I did differently was to cook the chicken in a little more dressing than called for and used 2 cups of spaghetti sauce. REALLY YUMMY!
