CHICKEN-ZUCCHINI CHILAQUILES BAKE
- Cut ends off zucchini; thinly slice lengthwise. Place slices between paper towels; cover with cookie sheet. Place heavy pan or books on cookie sheet to press down on zucchini; let stand 10-15 minutes to allow juice to absorb into paper towels.
- Heat oven to 375°F. Spray PYREX® EASY GRAB ® 3 QT OBLONG BAKING DISH with cooking spray. In medium bowl, mix salsa, chiles, garlic and salt. Place half of the tortilla chips in baking dish; layer with 2 cups of the chicken. Arrange half of the zucchini slices over chicken. Top with half of the salsa mixture and 2 cups of the cheese. Repeat layers with remaining tortilla chips, chicken, zucchini, salsa mixture and cheese.
- Bake uncovered 20 to 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden brown.
