Chicken-Stuffed Acorn Squash

Perfect for the Fall!

Chicken-Stuffed Acorn Squash

2 medium acorn squash (about 1 1/4 pounds each)
12 ounces ground raw chicken
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
1 5-ounce container light semi-soft cheese with garlic and herb
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup corn bread stuffing mix or 2 tbl fine dry breadcrumbs
1 tbl reduced-calorie margarine, melted

Instructions Halve squash lengthwise. Remove seeds; discard. Place squash, cut side down, in a 3 qt rectangular baking dish. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet cook chicken, onion and garlic till chicken is browned and onion is tender; drain off fat. Stir in vegetables, cheese and salt.
Turn squash cut side up and spoon in chicken mixture. Bake, loosely covered, 20 minutes more until squash is tender and filling is heated through. Stir together stuffing mix or crumbs and melted margarine; sprinkle over filling. Bake, uncovered, 3 minutes more. Serves 4
