1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly coat a large baking dish with cooking spray.
2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until
lightly browned, breaking apart into small pieces, about 8 to 10 minutes.

3. Reduce heat to low and stir in salt, pepper and garlic, cooking until fragrant, about 1
minute. Add pasta sauce and cook until it comes to a simmer, about 3 minutes.

4. Cut zucchini in half, lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop seeds out of the center of each half,
leaving a 1/4-inch-thick zucchini boat. Place boats in prepared baking dish, cut-side-up.

5. Spoon chicken mixture into zucchini boats, pressing the mixture down using the back of a
spoon. Top each boat evenly with Parmesan and mozzarella.

6. Cover baking dish with foil and bake until zucchini is tender, about 20 minutes. Remove
foil and bake until cheese is lightly golden-brown, about 10 minutes. Garnish with fresh
basil, and serve.
