Buffalo Chicken Zucchini Boats - a simple stuffed zucchini recipe that combines the flavors of your favorite buffalo wings with fresh summer veggies.


  • 4 large zucchini
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 lbs. ground chicken
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce
  • 2 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella + more for topping
  • Garlic and Fine Herb Boursin Cheese (ricotta can be substituted)




  1. Wash zucchini and slice in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to hollow out the centers, leaving about 1/4" edge all the way around the zucchini. This helps the zucchini hold it's shape.

Make The Buffalo Chicken Filling:

  1. To a large skillet over medium heat,  add olive oil and ground chicken. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Use a wooden spoon to break the meat apart, stirring frequently until chicken is no longer pink.
  2. While chicken is cooking, mix yogurt, buffalo sauce, dill, garlic powder, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp of pepper together in a small prep bowl. Set aside.
  3. Once the meat is cooked, add 1 cup of the buffalo/yogurt sauce (you can use the rest to drizzle over top when serving) and 1 cup of shredded cheese. Mix. Stir frequently for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and at least 1/2 of the liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes to thicken.

Assemble Zucchini Boats:

  1. While the filling thickens, crumble 1/8 of the Boursin cheese into each hollowed out zucchini. 
  2. Place a generous amount of filling over the Boursin cheese and top with a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese.
  3. Bake zucchini boats at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the zucchini is tender and the cheese is melted through. Cooking times will vary based on the size of your zucchini. Serve immediately.


  • Zucchini Boats can be made up to 1 day in advance. Follow recipe directions, but do not bake. Instead, wrap the baking sheet tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator. To heat, follow recipe directions.
