Dinner in a Pumpkin

Use a pie pumpkin.
Open it up and clean it out. 
Sprinkle salt and pepper on the inside.
Put the pumpkin on a baking sheet, then put it into a 350 degree oven while you prepare the insides. 

In a pot heat:
2-3 cooked and chopped chicken breasts
1 cube cream cheese
1 can cream of chicken soup
3/4 cup water
A package of Italian seasoning 

You can add other veggies to this mix - corn, carrots, peas, - but make sure you cook any "hard" veggies (like carrots) first. They won't get cooked enough in the pumpkin. 
Or you could have fresh veggies or a salad on the side. 

Pour mixture into your pumpkin. Put the pumpkin lid on top and cook for 60-90 minutes or until the pumpkin is soft and cooked. 

Serve over rice. Don't forget to scoop some of that yummy pumpkin out as you eat!
