Cheesy Bbq Chicken Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Prep
Cook
Serves 4people
Ingredients
Olive oil, for greasing pan
4
medium zucchini, sliced in half lengthwise (look for zucchini that is similar in size)
1 1/2
tbsp olive oil, divided
2
garlic cloves, minced
1/2
red onion, finely diced
1
lb (about 2 1/2 cups) cooked shredded chicken breast (can also be from a rotisserie chicken)
1
cup low sugar BBQ sauce, divided (plus more if you like it extra saucy)
1 1/4
cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
To garnish: Cilantro and Green onions
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9x13 inch pan with olive oil.
2.
Using a spoon, scoop centers from zucchini while leaving a 1/4-inch rim to create boats.
3.
Place zucchini in the greased pan; they should snuggle pretty tightly in there, but if you can’t fit them all in, you can use two pans.
4.
Brush zucchini with a little olive oil (about 1 tablespoon or so). You can also simply spray them with an all natural oil-only cooking spray.
5.
Add ½ tablespoon of olive oil to a medium skillet and place over medium heat. Add in onions and garlic, and saute for 3-4 minutes.
6.
Transfer to a large bowl then stir in shredded chicken, 1/2 cup BBQ sauce and ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese.
7.
Spoon BBQ chicken mixture evenly into zucchini boats.
8.
Top each with 1 tablespoon BBQ sauce (or a little extra if you’d like it more saucy) and 1 1/2 tablespoons cheese.
9.
Cover with foil, and bake for 35-45 minutes or until cheese has melted and zucchini is tender.
10.
Once done, sprinkle the tops with cilantro and green onion before serving.
