Chicken zucchini casserole is a great idea for lunch or dinner for two. The cooking process does not take much time. Some products need to pre-fry, then mix with the rest of the ingredients, add oatmeal and pour over all the beaten eggs. Hercules will absorb moisture from zucchini, swell, casserole will be lush and satisfying.
From the courgettes of which only recipes did not come up - jam cooked, baked pancakes and pancakes, stuffed, cooked caviar and salads for the winter. In my opinion, this is the most popular vegetable, especially from June to October.
There are a couple of ways to quickly cook a vegetable casserole. First, you can fry vegetables in a deep frying pan, and then pour them with an egg-milk mixture. For even cooking on both sides of such vegetable omelet overturned in the style of tortilla. The second way I prefer - to bake in the oven, this method of cooking delivers less hassle. While the dish is baking, you can relax and have a cup of coffee or an aperitif.
A big plus recipe - casserole is prepared without flour. Flour is often added to the egg mixture so that the ingredients do not fall apart, but some people suffer from gluten intolerance, which is why flour is replaced with gluten-free products.

Method of cooking zucchini casserole with chicken
On a large vegetable grater three small carrots. Chop the onion finely. Fry onions with carrots in vegetable oil, spread in a refractory form, oiled.
Chicken fillet cut into small cubes. Fry the chicken in the same pan, in which vegetables are browned. We shift the pieces of fried chicken in the form.
Cut the zucchini into thin strips. Cut a small tomato into cubes. Add chopped raw vegetables to the rest of the ingredients.
Seasoning zucchini casserole with chicken, add a savory note to it. Finely chop a small bunch of fresh herbs - parsley or cilantro. For piquancy and flavor enhancement, I poured a couple of tablespoons of dried carrots, dried sweet peppers and a teaspoon of ground sweet paprika.
Next, pour into the form of instant oatmeal and salt to taste. Then mix the ingredients thoroughly. Under the influence of salt, zucchini will release water, because this vegetable is 80% water. The flakes absorb moisture, so the finished dish will not get watery.
Smash raw chicken eggs in a bowl, add a pinch of salt, and mix with a whisk. It is not necessary to whip strongly, it is enough to destroy the structure of the protein and yolk.
Pour the mixture into the form with a casserole, gently shake so that it spreads evenly.
We put the form on the average level of the oven, turn on the heating to 185 degrees Celsius. A zucchini casserole with chicken will be ready in about 15-20 minutes, depending on the individual characteristics of the oven.
Serve hot zucchini casserole on the table, season with sour cream and ketchup. Enjoy your meal!
