Squash Stuffed with Chicken

This is a beautiful dish to serve because you put the squash in the center of the table on a large platter. If the squash is small you can serve each stuffed squash on individual plates. People are always surprised to lift the top o the squash and see it stuffed with the chicken stew. As you serve, scoop out a bit of the squash from the inside but do not break the skin as this is the vessel for holding the chicken stew. INGREDIENTS
