This is very good! The subtle flavor of the chicken partners well with the zucchini and the rich cream cheese garlic sauce.

This is a FANTASTIC recipe. I've substituted broccoli for the zucchini when not in season. That garlic cream sauce is out of this world. A must try!

We really enjoyed this!! We did find our chicken a bit dry, so I'll figure that out next time...maybe remove it early or cook @ a lower heat? Also did kinda 2/3rds (2 1/2 breasts or 1 full breast 2 small zucchini) ckn portion, but full garlic cream amount (with 1 tsp garlic). Was a little confused about whether it was 3 Full breasts, or 3 1/2 breasts in directions? Anyway, we'll make this again! Oh yeah, we also said we'd maybe add a bit more onion, and maybe garnish with parsley! Thank you!

Made this just as written except I subbed yogurt cheese for the cream cheese. Attractive and very good.
