Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Zucchini Skins

I love these zucchini skins as a low carb snack or appetizer. They are also a great way to get more veggies in your day! I have a variation of these in my air fryer cookbook that I love, which inspired this recipe. If you want to make the chicken ahead, you can refrigerate up to 4 days. They are easy to scale up or down.

Variations and Tips

  • If you don't have an air fryer you can make them in the oven, bake 375 15 min, then add the chicken and bake 4 minutes more.
  • If you don't like blue cheese or gorgonzola cheese, try them with mozzarella or cheddar cheese.
