  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 ½ cups marinara
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • ½ cup breadcrumbs

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

  2. Add the diced onion, cooking until it starts to soften, about 5 minutes.

  3. Add the ground chicken and cook until browned, breaking it up into chunks as you go.

  4. Once the chicken is cooked, add the shredded zucchini and Italian seasoning and cook until the zucchini softens, another 3 to 4 minutes.

  5. Add the marinara and cook for another 5 minutes.

  6. Finally, add the mozzarella, turn the heat to low and cover until the cheese is melted, about 4 to 5 minutes. Alternately, if you are making this in an oven-proof skillet, you can broil the cheese to melt it.

  7. Top with golden buttered breadcrumbs and serve on toasted brioche buns
