Zucchini and Chicken Casserole

If you have an abundance of zucchini, this is definitely one recipe to try.

For me it stays somewhere on a verge between being a casserole and omelette. It has creamy texture, tons of fiber, nice amount of protein and green festive color 🙂

Zucchini and Chicken Casserole is a great choice for lunch or dinner, or even breakfast if you prepare it in advance ready for reheating.
