Chicken Romano Stuffed Squash: Jessi's Kitchen

Winter squash season is finally here and I can’t get enough of this Chicken Romano Stuffed Squash. Is there really a better season than fall? I am just going to answer that for you and say….NO! So here is the thing about stuffed acorn squash. I really love it but my husband is not a fan. He seriously loves all of the food I make…..except stuffed squash. I really don’t understand it. It is squash with deliciousness inside but he just never likes it and I think it is weird. I realize this is probably an unnecessarily long explanation of my husband’s hatred of stuffed squash but I promise there is a point to this and that is….HE LIKED THIS RECIPE…..(*cue hallelujah music).

Seriously though – this is kind of a big deal. So if you have a spouse or if you yourself are hesitant about stuffed squash I think that you need to give this recipe a try. I mean, it has cheese in it and that basically makes all of life better.

Enjoy!
