Healthy Chicken Bacon Zucchini Boats

You will need:
-3 zucchini, about 5 or 6 inches long and 1 inch or so diameter
-2 oz shredded chicken
-3 strips bacon, fried to just crispy
-1 c mushrooms, chopped
-1/2 c onion, chopped
-2/3 C tomatoes, diced
-1/3 C marinara or tomato sauce of choice
-salt and pepper to taste
-1/4 c water

Cut the ends off the zucchini and cut in half lengthwise.  Hollow out the center.

Drain off a little bacon grease from the frying before adding in the onions and tomato.  Cook until onions start to turn translucent.  Remove from heat, add chicken, and stir.  You could also sautee your mushrooms with this, I did not originally plan on adding them and threw them in last minute.

Fill each of the boats with the chicken mixture and top with half of the bacon.

Distribute the marinara between the boats.  And here is where you have an option: either you can go ahead and put the rest of the bacon on now, but the water added to the pan will reduce the crispiness, or you can wait and add it as a garnish when it comes out of the oven.

Regardless, add the water to the pan and cover it with foil.  Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes.

Happy crafting!
