Baked Ricotta Chicken Primavera

Baked Ricotta Chicken Primavera Recipe by Ash's In The Kitchen

Another one pot meal! Baked Ricotta Chicken Primavera! So many delicious herbs and vegetables. My friend’s rave about this dish and even their kids will eat it. It is my favorite way of using up the excess summer squash and tomatoes that grown in my garden, especially if you make the marinara from scratch. You can, of course, use the jarred variety, but homemade always tastes so much fresher and you know exactly what’s going into your body. Win win!
