Chicken Parmesan Zucchini Boat

I’m always looking for creative ways to fix zucchini.  So I thought I’d give these a try and needless to say, I will be fixing these more often!!!


  • 2 Large Zucchinis
  • 5-6 Chicken Tenders
  • Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 2 T Bread Crumbs
  • 1/2 cups Marinara Sauce
  • 2 T Basil
  • 1/4 cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • 2 T Parmesan Cheese

Preheat the oven to 400°.  Cut the Zucchinis in half and put them on a baking sheet in the oven for 25 minutes, until tender.  I have found it is so much easier to scoop the seeds out if you bake the zucchini first, then scoop the seeds out before you fill them with the filling.


While those are baking, grill the chicken tenders with a little bit of olive oil.  Once grilled, chop the chicken.  Combine in a bowl: chicken, garlic, marinara sauce, basil, and mozzarella cheese.  In another bowl, combine the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese, set aside.  Scoop the seeds out of the zucchini and fill with the chicken mixture.  Top the zucchini boats with the bread crumb, parmesan cheese mixture.  Put back in the oven for 15 minutes.
