Ingredients

  • 4 small zucchini
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 2 tablespoons buffalo sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  4. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until the zucchini is tender and the cheese is melted. Serve warm drizzled with blue cheese dressing.

Next, scoop in your filling! I decided to mimic the flavors of my favorite buffalo chicken dip with some cream cheese, chicken, buffalo sauce, and cheddar. I am pretty crazy about blue cheese, so I sprinkle a little on top, but you can totally leave it out if it’s not your jam.
