  3. As the chicken cooks, cut the zucchini in half, lengthwise. Scoop the seeds and center out of each zucchini half with a spoon. Try leave at least a ¼ inch thick zucchini boat.
  4. Place the zucchini in the baking dish with the cut-side facing up.
  5. Spoon the chicken mixture into the zucchini boats.
