I always forget how much I love zucchini until I cook with it again and remember... man, I really love zucchini. These chicken-stuffed zuchinni boats are an excellent easy low carb dinner idea that ended up being surprisingly satisfying and satiating despite the lower calorie count. It's all in that protein content, man!
There is a bit of prep time involved with this recipe since you have to hollow out the zucchini boats and chop some raw chicken and veggies. You can absolutely chop the veggies ahead of time (maybe the night before) and store them in a tightly-sealed plastic bag or covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator. Then, the next day, when you're ready to start dinner, the hard part is already done!
And this topping? It's light, it's crisp, it's refreshing, and it's an amazing pairing with all of the flavors in the zucchini boats. It really completes the dish!
If you need more calories to complete your meal, increase the serving size or add a side dish or two (a salad or some more veggies). If you're not counting carbs, go ahead and add some starches like potatoes or toasty bread! Enjoy!Print
A note about carbs: Subtract the dietary fiber from the total carbs to arrive at the net carb count. One serving of this recipe = 12.2g net carbs. If you're on a full keto diet and find this count to be too high, you can skip the topping or substitute with a lower carb yogurt to save carbs.
