Course: Main Course
Keyword: keto, low carb, zucchini boats
Servings: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 3 large zucchinis (or 4 small)
  • 2 cups marinara or tomato sauce
  • 3 cups freshly shredded mozzarella
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan
  • salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook and chop the ground chicken until no longer pink. Season to taste with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

  2. Mix in about 2 cups of tomato sauce with the chicken and turn the heat to low so it can simmer and absorb the sauce for a bit (you don't want it to be too runny, so if you're using a thin sauce you may need to use a little less).

  3. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, and grease a 9x13 baking dish.

  4. While the chicken and sauce are simmering, de-stem and cut your zucchinis in half length wise. Use a spoon or melon baller to carve out the guts. *See tip in notes for what to do with the guts.

  5. Mix in 2 cups of shredded mozzarella and 1/2 cup of your parmesan to the chicken and sauce mixture; stir until melted.

  6. Spoon the mixture onto your zucchini boats, and then sprinkle the remaining mozzarella and parmesan over top.

  7. Bake uncovered in the center rack for 25 minutes, and then switch your oven to broil for a few minutes to brown the cheese.

Recipe Notes
  • *I like to chop up the gutted zucchini and save it for zucchini fritters, to add to an egg scramble the next morning, toss with a salad, or to add to dinner the next night. You can also throw some of it in with your chicken and sauce mixture if you'd like, but I prefer to leave it out.
  • I usually end up with a little extra chicken mixture that I eat for lunch the next day.
  • I use Rao's Marinara and pizza sauce for most recipes because it's lower in carbs than most. You can find it in most grocery stores.

Don’t forget to pin and save for later! 🙂
