If you have a bounty of zucchini in your garden, found a too-good-to-resist deal at the local farmer’s market, or discovered a surprise delivery on your doorstep from a neighbor desperate to reduce their supply, I’ve got a great recipe for you!

Truth be told, I started making these earlier this summer with zucchini from the grocery store! I have been looking for ways to cut down my calories while still enjoying the foods I love, and this was a very easy one. Hollowed out zucchini boats make the perfect “shell” for chicken tacos, reducing the fat while still keeping you full. Plus, it’s delicious!

I just used my usual Crock Pot Chicken Taco recipe for this – the kids still had tacos while my husband and I dug into these! Here’s how easy it is:

Chicken Taco Zucchini Boats
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 large jar salsa (650ml, 22oz)
  • 3 or more zucchini (depending on if you’re sharing with the kids, 1 zucchini per person)…
