  • 3 medium/large zucchinis, cut in half length wise

Cooking Utensils

  • spoon for de-seeded
  • large baking sheet or 9 x 12 casserole dish

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450F
  2. De-seed the zucchinis leaving room to stuff them.
  3. Spread 2 teaspoons of pasta sauce on each zucchini. Then sprinkle a couple of pinches of taco seasoning. Divide the shredded chicken and cheese evenly on the zucchinis.
  4. Cook for 13-15 minutes until cheese is melted or toppings are hot.

Substitutions:

  • I used Rao’s marinara because it is lower in carbs and doesn’t have any added sugars.
  • For a vegan-friendly boat: sub the chicken for ground plant-based “meat”, black beans or Spanish rice.
  • I used a dairy-free Mexican blend shredded cheese, but you can use any meltable cheese on hand.
