|This is not a video - it's a screen shot of a video - just to completely confuse you|
As a non-chef, non-foodie, I'm usually not into recipes. Why? Because it always looks so damn time consuming. A quick meal's a good meal and all that.
But these little 30 second videos that come through my Facebook feed make things look so darn easy.
So last night I gave the zucchini boats a try.
Now, I wanted to embed the video for you but I can't because it's not on You Tube. So click here if you'd like to see it for yourself
Meanwhile let me show you my attempt at this recipe.
Some handy tips from me to make this process even simpler.
They show you how to make chicken schnitzel. There ain't nobody got time for that! I just buy the schnitzels already done at Woolies.
They also use an Italian style tomato sauce, whereas I used medium hot salsa that I already had in the cupboard in readiness for a corn chip night. Plus they bought big chunks of fresh mozzarella cheese whereas I just pulled a bag of the grated stuff out of my freezer.
- Put two chicken schnitzels in a pre-heated oven for 20 minutes
- Grab 4 zucchinis and slice them in half long ways
- Line them up right next to each other on a baking tray (using baking paper)
- With a teaspoon scoop out the middle of each zucc creating a boat
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook in the oven for 15 minutes on 180.
- Cut up your cooked schnitzel into cubes and fill each boat
- Spread salsa long the full length of each zucchini on top of the chicken
- Sprinkle a good helping of mozzarella cheese all over each boat
- Finish off with some grated tasty cheese
- Bake in the oven on 180 for 10 minutes.
- Serve with garlic bread and salad
- Take an insta photo and hashtag it #yum

|Fill with cubed chicken schnitzel, smother with salsa and throw a bunch of mozzarella and tasty cheese on top.|
Pop some garlic bread on the tray while you're at it.
|Put it in the oven again for another ten minutes on 180.|
|Serve with a big salad and garlic bread.|
The family gave these the big thumbs up.
Do you ever make food from the Facebook videos?
Would you have made your own schnitties or bought them pre-made?
What chef cheats have you used lately?
Note: I actually can't have tomatoes (or anything too tomatoey) in my life due to sensitivities so I only put the smallest dash of salsa on my own zucchini boats just to give it a slight flavour. It was still a taste sensation.
