This Stuffed Zucchini Boats Recipe is really just SO GOOD! I mean, it’s really delicious. I follow a mostly low carb diet – it’s how I lost 30 pounds after my divorce and have kept it off for two years now. This Stuffed Zucchini Boats Recipe is pretty low carb, and it’s also great for those days when you’re avoiding meat (not that I ever do that!).

The zucchini comes out pretty soft, but it still has a little crunch, which is my favorite thing about zucchini…it’s like a cucumber that cooks well! I cut this recipe into smaller pieces and could easily eat almost all of them!

Stuffed Zucchini Boats Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 fresh zucchini
  • 1 cup cooked chicken, cubed
  • 2/3 cup pizza or marinara sauce
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper
  • Shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions:

Preheat an outdoor grill.

Cut zucchini lengthwise. Cut a flat spot on the bottom of the zucchini if necessary to sit level. Use the end of a spoon to scoop a 1/2″ wide x 1/2″ deep well of zucchini out of the center. Discard.

Mix chicken, sauce, bread crumbs, egg and salt and pepper together. Spoon a small amount into each zucchini. Top with cheese.

Place zucchini onto foil. Wrap it gently around the edges of the zucchini. Place on a preheated grill and cook for 10-12 minutes or until desired doneness. I like mine soft with a bit of crunch.
