Makes 7 servings
Per serving
1 Leaner protein
1 fat
1 vegetable
2 ½ condiments

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 pounds bone-in chicken breasts without skin
  • 2 cups chicken stock, or as needed
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 12 long ways slices of zucchini total weight 1 1/3 pound
  • cooking spray
  • ¼ cup onion, finely chopped
  • 2/3 cup buffalo wing sauce
  • 1/2 cup crumbled low fat blue cheese
  • 1 (16 ounce) container ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup Hidden Valley light ranch dressing
  • 1 egg
  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions:

Place chicken in a single layer in a large pot and add enough chicken stock to cover; season with paprika, 1 salt, and cayenne pepper. Bring stock to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 15 to 20 minutes. Shred chicken.

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook zucchini noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain. Arrange noodles on a sheet of aluminum foil or parchment paper and spray with cooking spray to prevent sticking.

Heat cooking spray in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion until just starting to soften, about 5 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Combine onion mixture and shredded chicken in a bowl; add about 1/3 the buffalo wing sauce and blue cheese and mix well.

Mix ricotta cheese, ranch dressing, and remaining buffalo wing sauce in a separate bowl; season with salt and cayenne pepper to taste. Stir egg into mixture.

Spread a layer of ricotta mixture in the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish; top with a layer of 3 noodles. Spread 1/4 of the remaining ricotta mixture over noodle layer; top with 1/3 the chicken mixture, and 1/4 the mozzarella cheese. Layer 3 lasagna noodles over cheese layer and repeat layering 2 times more ending with a layer of ricotta mixture and mozzarella cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and top is lightly browned, about 45 minutes. Cool lasagna at least 20 minutes before cutting.
