Anybody have any idea if eggplant could be used as a sub for the zucchini? Return to oven and bake 5 - 10 minutes longer until cheese has melted and zucchini is tender.

Curious…did you use the green part of the green onion when cooking in the saute pan or the white part? I didn't have any left to freeze so I am not sure, but if you do freeze them, I would freeze them after you cook them. They were really tasty with a dollop of low fat sour cream and some cilantro on top. Like most squashes, zucchini is high in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients- meaning it’s great for cellular health! I've made them three times already And they were a hit each time . I want to make this as is for me, looks amazing!…but I'm also serving my boyfriend (he eats a ton) – any ideas of what to serve with to make sure its filling enough for him?

Use any fresh herb you like. I just bought 2 zukes yesterday and happen to have chicken that I'm making tonight that will surely have leftovers to shred.

I live in Texas and love Tex Mex food. We will definitely be making them again! Hubby and I are trying to go lo-carb before a Hawaii vaca next month so this fit the bill nicely. They are delicious and very filling! There were a few things that I did differently: I used ground chicken instead of chicken breasts (it was just easier to brown it); in the sauce part, the entire can of chicken broth was added by accident and I think I put about 3 tablespoons or more of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (it did make it spicy but it was still so good); and I also made a creamy sauce to put over it after I took it out of the oven.
