Chicken Pesto Zucchini Boats

Chicken Pesto Zucchini Boats

 

There are only four ingredients in this recipe, and when those ingredients combine they make a simply amazing and easy dinner dish. And of course it meets the #HealthyInUnder30 criteria of taking almost exactly 30 minutes to make (maybe less if you are faster than me at spooning out zucchini seeds…I managed to fling some on the floor). I pretty much always think I’m a master chef (not really), but I know I pulled off a great meal when my husband is a fan of food served inside a vegetable. If he didn’t notice the absence of grain or bread, then you won’t either!

 

I normally make my own pesto, as I’ve yet to figure out much else to do with the massive amount of basil my one plant produces every summer. However, since speed was of essence for a meal in under 30 minutes, I went for the store-bought pesto. A can of plain diced tomatoes extends the filling for the zucchinis, and adds in an extra veggie. This meal also saves time by using rotisserie chicken; you of course can use any chicken you have pre-cooked!
