- ¾ lb chicken-breast, cut into cubes
- 3 zucchinis
- ¼ cup shredded mozzarella-cheese
- ¼ cup grated parmesan-cheese
- ¼ tsp ground black-pepper
- ¼ tsp garlic-powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp Italian-seasoning
- ¾ cup pasta-sauce
- 1 tbsp olive-oil
Preheat oven to 400°F and then cut the zucchini in half-lengthwise, then use a spoon or melon-baller to scoop the middle seeds and flesh out of the zucchini. Repeat for the remaining zucchini.
Put the zucchini into baking dish or cookie sheet cut-side upward & lightly coat with cooking-spray. Put from the pre-heated oven for 15minutes till the zucchini cooks slightly & becomes more tender.
Meanwhile, to prepare the chicken, heat the olive-oil in non stick-skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken together with the seasoning, pepper and salt.
Cook for 8-10minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Add the pasta-sauce & cook for a couple minutes, stirring periodically.
Twist the chicken mixture into the zucchini-boats. Top the chicken with parmesan-cheese and mozzarella-cheese. Return the zucchini ships to the oven for 5minutes, or till the cheese is melted.
Sprinkle with fresh-basil and parmesan-cheese, if desired then serve.
