  • 4 small-medium zucchini about 1¾ pounds
  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup Buffalo Wing Sauce not regular hot sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

    Delicious. Easy, tasty. Made as directed just added a little cheddar cheese in addition to mozzarella. This will be in our favorite quick meals.

  3. Made last night, whilethe chicken mix was good my zucchini did get super soft. I did sautee red onion and garlic to add to the meat, and used S&P to season the zucchini before stuffing. Not sure if they was cooked to long or i took to much out. However it was good and felt healthy, may try again bbut next time blanch the zucchini and not bake as long

    Love this recipe! Definitely a crowd pleaser. When I ask the family what they would like for dinner this is always mentioned. Have it at least once a week.

    My husband and I loved this. Couldn’t be any easier to make and I could easily add more cheese to his boats and adjust to our taste. So tasty and simple!!!!

    The hubby and I decided this needs to be in our “favorites” rotation… he suggested we have it weekly. My picky kids ate the meat mixture in bread, added lettuce and topped it off with ranch. It was a hit that way too! Can’t wait to check out your other recipes. Thanks for sharing!
