  3. Heat 3 tsp. oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and stir for 4 to 6 minutes. Add garlic to this and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, and paprika to this mix and bring it to a boil. Remember to stir frequently. Cook for 10 minutes on low heat.
  5. Tip in the chicken and corn into this, stir occasionally and cook for 5 minutes. Once done, remove from heat.
  6. Spoon the mixture into the zucchini boats and top it with cheese. Bake these for 5 to 8 minutes, until the cheese melts.

Serving Tip: To garnish, sprinkle with cilantro, cherry tomato and green onion and serve hot.
