These zucchini boats were actually quite good. I realized the recipe only called for 4oz, of chicken, but I probably cut up closer to a l lb from a package I bought. The extra chicken worked great. Being as I had more filling, and my zucchini were slightly small, I just used 5 zucchini instead of 3. I lined a large sheet pan, with sides, with foil. They all fit. I liked how this had so many vegetables zucchini, onion, mushroom, broccoli, and tomato. When sautéing the chicken it kept wanting to steam. I finally added 1 Tblsp of grape seed oil and it crisped up great. After I scooped the zucchini, I realized the middle was mainly seeds with their size. So, I didn't bother to add it to the sauce. I filled all 10 halves and basically used the small bag of mozzarella cheese I bought. I didn't bother to measure. It took one large tomato. I sliced it thin. They baked in about 23 minutes and then I turned the oven to a low broil and added about 3 more minutes to brown the top. ty
This was a great appetizer that was filling enough to be a main dish! Great taste and we loved the Classico Creamy Alfredo sauce so much that we spooned more on top. The second time I made it I mixed the tomato into the mixture and it baked up better!
This is perfect for all the zucchini I have right now! I didn't use chicken but rather used a lot of mushrooms and onions. My husband took the broccoli I had for lunch that day so that unfortunately got left out. I didn't have any tomatoes, either, so I served them with some marinara sauce on the side. I'm thinking this will be a great meal for baby-sitting my niece and nephew because it's gluten-free (nephew's allergic) and it's really a fun dish to eat because everyone gets their own "boat." This was an easy weeknight meal and I'm looking forward to the leftovers for MY lunch today. Very versatile recipe, which I love. Yummy!
