  1. Cori, Thanks for this recipe! I had a few veggies in the fridge that needed to be used up because they were starting to look puny. I had 2 yellow squash and 2 zuccini and I used this recipe to try it out.

    Chipotle Chicken Yellow Squash Boats were a big hit! Hubby ate one of each and I ate one made with the zuccini and grandson ate the other one with the yellow squash.
    This recipe is easy to make and very filling.
    It is full of flavor and you did a great job coming up with the flavor profile!

    Thanks so much!
