Ingredients

  • 2 cups chicken cooked
  • 2 cups diced zucchini
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup Italian blend cheese shredded
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 sundried tomato finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup pork panko
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400-F.
  • Combine the cooked chicken, heavy whipping cream, ricotta cheese, Italian blend cheese, cream cheese, zucchini, basil, garlic and onion powder, and sundried tomato in a large bowl until well-mixed.
  • Transfer the mixture to a shallow casserole dish - about 8 x 8, and spread it out evenly.
  • Combine the melted butter and pork panko in a small bowl until mixed, then sprinkle it over top of the casserole.
  • Bake uncovered for about 20 minutes until hot and bubbly.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Notes

Chef Jenn's Tips

  • Make sure your cream cheese is quite soft before trying to mix it. You can soften it in the microwave in 20-second bursts (make sure to remove the foil wrapper) to help you get started.
  • When cutting zucchini, I cut it all around the center core of the seeds. I discard the seeds. They're watery, fibrous, and not so tasty. You can slice the zucchini and then easily cut away the seedy core.
  • Chop the sundried tomato very small, so the flavor spreads throughout.
  • If your casserole starts to get too brown, cover the top lightly with foil.
