  • 4 medium zucchini (cut in half lengthwise)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 small onion (diced)
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper (diced)
  • Flesh from 2 zucchini
  • 1 1oz package Ranch Dressing mix
  • 1 1/2 cups canned diced tomatoes.
  • 8 slices bacon (cooked and chopped)
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese (shredded)


  • Cut the zucchini in half and using a small spoon, hollow out the center out of the halves, leaving 1/4 inch thick shell on each half, to create zucchini boats. Keep only the flesh from two zucchini and discard the rest.
  • Squeeze excess water out of the flesh and chop well. Set aside.
  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and once the oil is hot add ground chicken. Using a wooden spoon, break it up while it cooks. Cook until no longer pink and push to one side of the pan.
  • Add diced onion, garlic, diced bell pepper, chopped zucchini flesh and Ranch dressing mix. Stir and cook for 3-5 minutes.
  • Add diced tomatoes. Stir well and simmer on low for about 15 minutes. Taste and adjust for salt and pepper if needed.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking dish with foil, to avoid cheese sticking to it, and set aside.
  • Using a spoon, scoop the chicken mixture into the hollowed zucchini boats. Divide the mixture equally and press firm to fit in as much as possible into the zucchini boats.
  • Arrange into a baking dish and top with shredded cheese and chopped bacon.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 25-35 minutes until cheese is melted and zucchini is cooked through. Remove foil during last 5 minutes of cooking.
