With just 10 minutes of prep, this Honey Glazed Chipotle Zucchini and Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken is the perfect way to spice up weeknight dinner.
Today’s a bit of a rough one over here in our house. It’s Asheley’s first day back to work after having just 8 short weeks home with our baby girl. It’s sad really that the mom’s in this country don’t get treated better when it comes to maternity leave… if only she worked at Netflix. But in any case, Daddy’s in charge these next 3 days.
Then I goes back to work as well, at which time we fully expect Olivia to be independent and care for herself while we are away at work. Don’t worry, she’s a pretty advanced 2 month old.
With both of us going back to work, weeknight dinners are gonna need some creative help. Like, it was tricky enough cooking dinner when I was off all day this summer. Newborns really have a way of throwing off your routine 😉
Enter this creative chicken recipe. It takes just 10 minutes of prep. Throw it in the oven and boom. Instant dinner… Honey Glazed Chipotle Zucchini and Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken.
If you’ve been following along this week, you know that this is the 3rd of 5 recipes for the super awesome TABASCO 10 Challenge. #humpday
5 days to create 5 original recipes… any only 10 ingredients to choose from.
It’s been really fun (albeit difficult) to find a creative way to use these 10 ingredients. Well, 9 ingredients… because I’m sure as heck not using fennel. Bleh.
This honey glazed stuffed chicken is totally going to become a weeknight staple in our house.
Now don’t get all freaked out by the chipotle in the title. If you aren’t a fan of spicy, there’s no need to worry. It’s not hot. But there is a gentle warmth that just lingers for a bit. That’s why I’m really loving the TABASCO Chipotle Sauce. It’s got a really mellow heat to it, but the flavor is jam-packed to the brim.
And the honey glazed breadcrumb topping? The sweet is the perfect balance for that gentle heat (hey, that rhymes), and the crunch from the breadcrumbs is legit.
BTW, don’t worry about making homemade ciabatta breadcrumbs if you’re in a rush. And since it’s a weeknight, you’re most likely in a rush. The breadcrumbs you have in the pantry will work just fine. I made a big batch of ciabatta breadcrumbs because, well, that’s the only option I had according to the strict overlords that keep watch over this recipe challenge.
