Delicious and oh so easy. I make variations of this using different spices. A tip for cutting large squash: Poke holes in the squash with the end of a knife and microwave on high for 3 minutes. This softens the skin and makes it much easier to cut and seed.

This was great! I substituted the tomatoes and peppers for vegetables that I like better. I also added about 1/2 cup of wine to the chicken and veggies while they cooked on the stovetop. Also, I used muenster instead of cheddar (about 1 cup), because that was what I had on hand, and I also sprinkled a bit of parmesan on top. This is going into my rotation!

Made this for a dinner party and it was a huge hit. Per one of the comments, the flavor was a little bland so I seasoned the chicken with Mrs. Dash. I made two casseroles and froze one for later. It froze well but be prepared for more moisture when it thaws and cooks. Anyhow, very good and a nice presentation! I will make it again
