    I just made this recipe, and it was incredibly delicious! It had so much flavor, yet still felt really light. This will absolutely be a regular dinner at my house going forward!

    I loved this recipe. Really easy to make. You can even use precooked chicken to speed up the process. Next time, I will probably cut the goat cheese in half. It was a bit overwhelming. Overall delicious recipe!

    What other cheese can you use other than goat cheese

      Hi, Lynette! A soft low-fat ricotta would work! Feta is another amazing substitute for goat cheese and is more crumbly.

    What could I replace zucchini with as hubby won’t eat it as it’s too soft a vegetable? Thanks.

      Hi, Jane. You can try substituting either squash or eggplant for the zucchini.
