INGREDIENTS
  • 4 zucchini, halved lengthwise
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (8-oz.) block cream cheese, softened
  • 2 c. shredded chicken
  • 1 c. shredded Monterey Jack , divided
  • 1 c. shredded cheddar, divided
  • 6 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 jalapeños, seeds removed and diced
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder


DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Score zucchini (like you’re dicing an avocado) and scoop out insides, reserving them for later. Place zucchini halves cut side up into bottom of 9"-x-13" baking dish. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake until zucchini turns bright green and is just beginning to soften, 15 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, shredded chicken, ½ cup of each cheese, bacon, jalapeños, and garlic powder. Season with salt and pepper. Fold in reserved zucchini pieces.
  3. Spoon filling into zucchini and top with remaining ½ cup of each cheese and bake until cheese is melty, 15 minutes.
