    This is a great main dish for Passover but it's also just good any time. Chicken breasts are stuffed with a mix of matzo, zucchini and onion.

    Serves: 8 

    • 200g matzo meal
    • 2 zucchini, grated
    • 2 eggs, beaten
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • salt and freshly pepper to taste
    • 8 bone-in chicken breasts, with skin

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Grease a roasting tray or large baking dish.
    2. Place matzo meal in a bowl and cover with hot water for 3 or 4 minutes until soft. Drain and squeeze out water.
    3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine zucchini, matzo meal, eggs, onion, salt and pepper.
    4. Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of the stuffing under the skin of each chicken piece and arrange them on baking tray.
    5. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Drain off any fat and serve.

    I had some trouble finding chicken breasts with skin. But once I did this recipe goes together quick, & is such a nice change from all the other passover high fat stuff! I will make this again! - 08 Oct 2008


    This was really good! Something different during passover... - 08 Oct 2008


    I made this recipe last year and it was great! Not dry, good texture and a healthier alternative to traditional stuffing. Grating zucchini took some time. - 08 Oct 2008
