Buffalo Chicken Zucchini Boats
yield: 4 SERVINGS
prep time: 15 MINUTES
cook time: 30 MINUTES
total time: 45 MINUTES
This low carb dish has all the yummy buffalo chicken flavors served up in a roasted zucchini boat!
- 1 pound ground chicken or ground turkey
- 1/2 cup buffalo chicken wing sauce
- 4 medium sized zucchini
- 1/2 cup Italian blend cheese, shredded
- Optional Toppings: Blue cheese crumbles & chopped green onions
Crumble and cook ground meat on the stove. Stir in wing sauce and set aside.
Cut zucchini in half lengthwise and scoop out the center. (A melon baller kitchen tool works well for this.)
Place zucchini on a baking sheet or dish.
Spoon ground meat into the middle of zucchini halves, and sprinkle shredded cheese evenly over the top of each half.
Cover pan with foil and bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until zucchini is tender.
Top with sliced green onion and crumbled Blue cheese, if desired.

I actually used ground turkey and it turned out delicious! You could also use leftover shredded chicken, chopped grilled chicken, or even a can of chicken in a pinch.
This is the type of meal that’s super yummy and happens to be low carb!
I love when that happens. Such a great way to use up summer zucchini as well!
Buffalo Chicken Zucchini Boats are super satisfying with lots of tangy melted cheese goodness! They’re easy to prepare and definitely a must-try idea if your family likes buffalo chicken flavors. Enjoy!
As always, it looks lovely! I’m always hunting down low-carb dinner recipes and I can’t wait to try this. Thanks for sharing!
What do you do with the leftover zucchini centers?
When I use my spiralizer I just chop that middle peice that is leftover and add it in with the mix. I don’t waste anything.
Eat them raw 😊
You could always chop zucchini first and put it in with meat. I liked chopped zucchini in spaghetti sauce so I used it for that. Hope that helps.
I always live these recipes but I’m a household of 1 and even trying to half the recipe I always end up wasting too much or get tired of it. Looks good through.
You could always quarter or half the recipe, ask butcher for 1/4# or 1/2# ground turkey/chicken & only buy 1-2 zucchini. Just a thought, then you’d possibly have a leftover for lunch or another dinner.
What you could do is just freeze the cooked meat filling and save it for another meal.
Agree! You could totally freeze the meat and then just buy the zucchini when you need it.
Thanks Takia! The leftovers were good the next day on this 😋
This looks yummy, Do you by any chance do vegan recipes? After watching “What The Health” I am trying to give up meat, Thank you in Advance!
Just saw “what the health” too. Eye opening.
I’ve been telling everyone I know NOT to watch it.
This might sway your opinion on that documentary.
You could slice the zucchini lengthwise making the strips into a pizza crust, first bake them, then add toppings and bake again.
Yum! Thanks for the quick and easy dinner! Love all the ingredients, should be a hit!
