Zucchini Chicken Enchilada Roll-Ups
Tortillas ➡ Zucchini Slices
I love zucchini any way it comes, it’s very underrated in my opinion. So, replacing the tortillas in these roll ups with zucchini slices just makes sense to me! The flavors pop in this dish, so you don’t even miss the tortilla. Promise!
1 rotisserie chicken, shredded
1 15 oz jar Siete enchilada sauce (I use the red @sietefoods sauce)
1 bag Right Rice (I use the original @rightrice)
3 large zucchini, cut lengthwise into 1/4 inch slices
1 small white onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp avocado oil
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
Pink Himalayan Sea Salt, to taste
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
Garlic powder, to taste
1 cup shredded cheese (omit for dairy-free)
Optional Toppings: Greek yogurt (I use @kitehillfoods Greek-style)
HOW TO MAKE
-Preheat oven to 400.
-Cook Right Rice according to instructions.
-Cut zucchini lengthwise into 1/4 inch thick slices. If you have a mandolin, use it!
-Season zucchini on each side with a sprinkle of pink Himalayan sea salt, black pepper, and garlic powder.
-Grill zucchini on a grill pan over high heat until grill marks form (2-3 minutes on each side) then remove. This makes it easier to roll. *If you don’t have a grill pan, sauté zucchini in a skillet with avocado oil spray over medium high heat for 2-3 minutes until pliable.*
-Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat, and sauté onion and garlic for 3 minutes.
-Add chicken, cilantro, oregano, cumin, chili powder, 1.5 cups of cooked Right Rice, and 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce. Heat for 5 minutes.
-Spread 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.
-Put 1-2 Tbsp chicken mixture on the end of a zucchini slice (closest to you), and roll up the slice away from you. Place seam side down in baking dish. Repeat for all zucchini slices.
-Top with 1 cup of enchilada sauce and cheese if not dairy-free. Cover with foil.
-Bake for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
-Sprinkle with cilantro, and add toppings of choice.
