Zucchini boats are a popular option for any healthy eater. They are low carb, figure friendly, and if you leave off the cheese they work for Paleo and clean eating diets as well. However my favorite target for zucchini boats is people who normally dislike vegetables - kids, significant others, etc. By topping zucchini with lots of yummy ingredients, like sauce and cheese and chicken in this case, you can get almost anyone to eat a zucchini.

Made per recipe but substituted herbs on hand (herbs de porvance) and ground chicken instead of turkey. I made these for lunches with a piece of fruit. Kept me satisfied until dinner. Not an easy feat. Also, delicious!

Why is it called parmesan when there is no parmesan in the recipe?
