For anyone that is watching carbs or doing a Keto type of diet, this is a great alternative to a chicken sandwich. Any time we can replace carb loaded bread with a vegetable and it still tastes good, I’m a happy girl.

How To Make Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Zucchini

Truthfully, this is a pretty simple recipe to make. We’re simply going to make a chicken cream cheese mixture, spoon it into zucchini and bake. Let’s do it!

  1. Prep Zucchini. Cut them lengthwise and scoop out most of the veggie to make a boat for the chicken.
  2. Buffalo Chicken. Mix up the chicken with cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, ranch and buffalo sauce. Scoop it into the zucchini; yes it will be overflowing!
  3. Bake. Cook the stuffed zucchini for 15-20 minutes. Then, while it’s cooking you can make the bleu cheese sauce.
  4. Sauce. Blend your ingredients in a food processor (or blender) until you get a dressing consistency. Of course, if blue cheese isn’t your thing, you can totally skip this and just use ranch dressing.
