Chicken Cucumber Boats
These refreshing cucumber creations will make your next lunch seem special. "This is a cool dish when days get warm," says Sue Ross of Casa Grande, Arizona. Tip: "Try it with tuna or turkey salad as the filling instead.".

This was OK but not great. I probably will not make again, not enough flavor.
