Yield 8 zucchini boats
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 medium zucchini
  • 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • ½ cup wing sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ranch seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons green onions
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar, divided
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey jack, divided
  • Ranch or blue cheese dressing, for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Slice the zucchini in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop the centers out of the zucchini. Discard the scooped out zucchini or save for another use. Brush the shells with 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil. 
  3. Place the zucchini on a rimmed sheet pan and bake for 20 minutes.
  4. While the zucchini bakes, add the chicken, wing sauce, ranch seasoning, green onions, half of the cheddar, and half of the Monterey jack to a mixing bowl. Stir well to combine.
  5. Spoon the filling evenly between the cooked zucchini and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the filling is hot. 
  7. Drizzle with ranch or blue cheese before serving. 

Notes

You may add cayenne to the chicken mixture to add more spice, if you like it extra hot.
