Recipe Notes

  • To make these zucchini boats even richer (especially if you're following a keto diet), you can add more fat to the recipe by mixing in about 4 oz of cream cheese to the chicken mixture.
  • Make certain you are using "Buffalo Wing" sauce, not hot sauce.
  • You can additionally garnish these boats with blue cheese crumbles and/or green onion.
