Chicken in a Mold?

This is also from the After Work Cook Book. Maybe it's a personal hang-up, but I don't believe chicken should ever be molded...
Sweet-Sour Chicken Mold
2 packages sour cream sauce mix
2 3-oz. packages lemon-flavored gelatin
2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup cold water
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tsp. dried dillweed
1 medium green pepper, seeded and quartered
1 medium cucumber, peeled, quartered, and seeded
1 small carrot, sliced
2 5-oz. cans boned chicken, drained and cut up
Assorted fresh vegetables
Advance preparation (as opposed to?): Prepare sauce mix according to package directions. Dissolve gelatin in boiling water; add sour cream sauce, cold water, lemon juice, and dillweed. Beat till blended. Chill till partially set. Place green pepper, cucumber, and carrot in blender container; cover with cold water. Cover; blend just till coarsely chopped. Drain well, stir chopped vegetables and chicken into gelatin mixture. Turn into 7 1/2 cup ring mold. Chill till firm.
Before serving: Unmold and fill center with fresh vegetable.
Now I like to think of myself as a creative person, but this goes beyond the bounds of even my imagination...
