We love zucchini all year, but with summer coming to an end soon I am trying to cook it as much as possible. These turned out fabulous, my homemade enchilada sauce is a must for the best flavor!

You can use leftover rotisserie chicken, or make it yourself in the slow cooker by covering the chicken breasts with just enough water or broth, then cooking high 4 hours. After that shred the meat with two forks and proceed with the directions.

Tips:

  • To cut the zucchini thin I recommend using a . This is the one I have (affil link).
  • I grill the zucchini strips on a grill or grill pan before rolling to prevent them from getting to soggy, and it also makes it easy to roll.

  • 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.
