Buffalo Zucchini Boats
Zucchini boats are one of my Family’s FAVORITE Dinnertime Meals! This is a delicious variation! Makes about 4 servings
- 4 medium zucchini
- 1 lb. ground chicken, or turkey
- 1/2 cup Buffalo Wing Sauce, or homemade Skinny Buffalo Sauce (recipe below)
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
For the Skinny Buffalo sauce:
- 1/4 cup tomato sauce
- 2 Tbsp white vinegar
- 4 tsp paprika
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- sea salt and fresh pepper, to your taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees f. Spray a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and break it apart with a wooden spoon.
Cook for 7-9 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through, stirring occasionally.
In a small bowl, whisk all the Buffalo sauce ingredients.
Remove the skillet from the heat. Stir in the buffalo sauce.
Meanwhile, cut the zucchini in half, lengthwise.
Use a spoon to scoop the seeds and center out of each zucchini half, leaving a ¼ inch thick zucchini boat.
Place the zucchini in the baking dish cut-side up.
Spoon the chicken mixture into the zucchini boats. Sprinkle the zucchini evenly with the cheese.
Cover the baking dish with foil. Bake for 35 minutes.
Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley.
