Mediterranean Zucchini Boats

21 Day Fix, Autumn Calabrese, Tosca Reno, Clean Eating, Gluten Free, vanessadotfitness, vanessa.fitness, Country Heat, Insanity, Shaun T, Tony Horton
I love olives and Mediterranean flavors! I had seen recipes for zucchini boats Mexican style and parmesan style, so I had the idea of adding some olives, Feta cheese and spices to make them Mediterranean! This is one of those recipes that are incredibly simple, quick to make, and above all, healthy! And my kids loved this idea of a zucchini "boat"!!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound ground chicken or turkey breasts
  • 4 medium zucchinis, halved hotdog-style and the seeds scooped out
  • 1 TBSP coconut oil
  • ½ sweet onion, chopped or grated 
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped or grated
  • 3 tsp oregano
  • ½ cup chopped olives (any kind, I used a mix of green and black)
  • ½ cup Feta cheese 
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Heat your oven to 400*F. Line a casserole dish or baking 9 x 13 pan with parchment paper and set aside.
2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt coconut oil and sautee the onions and garlic until translucent (about 4 minutes).
3. Add the ground chicken/turkey to the skillet, along with the oregano, salt and pepper. the chicken until cooked thoroughly. The last 2 minutes of cooking the chicken, place the tomatoes and olives in with the poultry.
4. Place the zucchini boats in the lined pan and place the ground chicken/turkey mixture into the scooped out area of the boats. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the zucchinis start to become tender.
5. Top with the Feta cheese. Place back in the oven for 1-2 minutes, or until the cheese starts to get soft.

For the 21 Day Fix meal plan, I count 2 boats as
1.5 Green containers
1 Red container
Half a blue container
