Turkey Boats

These zucchini boats are quick, easy, healthy and yummy!
Here's what you'll need:
Ground chicken or turkey-browned
2 medium sized zucchini
green onion-chopped
garlic salt
salt and pepper
Mrs. Dash table blend
fat-free or light cheese

Take 1 zucchini peeled and dice it up-make sure to scoop out seeds.
Spray a saute pan with olive oil cooking spray and toss in the diced zucchini and green onions
garlic salt, pepper and basil.
Saute until zucchini is softened.
Here you can add in some of your favorite veggies to steam like spinach.
Set aside
To the saute pan, add the ground chicken, cumin, salt and pepper.
Cook and stir until browned.

Meanwhile scoop out the other zucchini to form "boat"
pop into the oven for about 10 mins-just to softened
you can also microwave for 2 to 3 mins instead.

grate cheese I used cheddar but you can use whatever you like.
line the bottom of the boats

Top cheese with the chicken/turkey and sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Top with a drizzle of BBQ sauce.

    So the zucchini boat in your pictures looks a lot like a cucumber . . . are you sure you used a zucchini? =)
    Hope you're having a great morning!
