Yield: 4 servings

Serving Size: 3 roll ups1x2x3x


  • ▢1 3/4 cups homemade enchilada sauce
  • ▢2 large, 14 oz each zucchini, cut lengthwise into 12 (1/4-inch thick) slices
  • ▢1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ▢fresh black pepper, to taste
  • ▢1 tsp olive oil
  • ▢8 ounces cooked shredded chicken breast, from rotisserie chicken
  • ▢1/2 cup minced onion
  • ▢2 large clove garlic, minced
  • ▢1/4 cup chopped cilantro, plus more for garnish
  • ▢1 tsp cumin
  • ▢1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • ▢1/4 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • ▢3/4 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • ▢sour cream, optional


  • Preheat the oven to 400F. Spread 1/4 cup of the enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
  • Cut the zucchini lengthwise, into 1/4-inch thick slices until you have a total of 12 slices about the same size. It’s easiest to do this with a mandolin.
  • Season both sides of the zucchini with 1/2 tsp salt and pepper, then grill on a grill pan over high heat to help dry out the zucchini, until pliable and grill marks form, but not fully cooked, about 2 minutes on each side.
  • Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté onions and garlic on low until soft, about 2 minutes. Add chicken, salt, cilantro, cumin, oregano, chili powder, 1/4 cup of the enchilada sauce, and cook 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Spread 3 tablespoons chicken on each slice zucchini. Roll up slices and arrange them each seam side down in the prepared dish.
  • Top with the remaining enchilada sauce and Mexican cheese blend and tightly cover with foil.
  • Bake 20 minutes, or until the cheese is hot and melted.
  • Drizzle with sour cream, if desired and garnish with cilantro.
