  • 2 tbsp ranch dressing (sub this for AIP)
  • 2 tbsp green onion


AIP buffalo sauce (see notes on preperation)

  • 2 tbsp coconut cream

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F and grease a 9×13″ baking dish with avocado oil.
  2. Combine the chicken and buffalo sauce well and set aside.
  3. Slice the zucchini in half vertically and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh inside the zucchini. Place in the baking dish.
  4. Stuff the zucchini with the chicken and transfer to the preheated oven. Bake for 20-23 minutes or until the zucchini is tender. Add the cheese (if using) and return to the oven for 2-4 minutes to allow the cheese to melt.

If you are making AIP buffalo sauce: While the poppers cook, combine the ingredients for the sauce in a pot and whisk well. Cook on the stove on medium heat for 5 minutes, whisking often until the sauce thickens. Remove from the heat.
