Buffalo Chicken Lasagna Cups #SundaySupper

Buffalo Chicken Lasagna Cups | alidaskitchen.com #SundaySupper

After making the Spinach Lasagna Cups recipe for last Sunday, I had another tasty idea pop into my head that I had to make right away – Buffalo Chicken Lasagna Cups.  I don’t typically like to share similar recipes back-to-back, but these were so good, they simply could not wait.

Buffalo Chicken Lasagna Cups are made with layers of cheese, veggies, spicy, buffalo-sauce soaked shredded chicken and more cheese.  In other words, they combine some of the most delicious game day foods (or any day foods, duh!)  into a  wonderful, bite-sized lasagna. The concept is the same as the Spinach Lasagna Cups, with lasagna-style layering, using wonton wrappers in place of noodles.   They are quick and easy to make, and bake up in a snap!

Buffalo Chicken Lasagna Cups | alidaskitchen.com This recipe is very flexible, so you can tailor it to suit your buffalo chicken preferences.  I poached and shredded boneless, skinless chicken breast, but you can easily use a rotisserie chicken instead.  Blue cheese can be mixed with the ricotta mixture, sprinkled on top before baking, or served on the side.  I’m not a fan of blue cheese, so I omit it completely.  The broccoli can be substituted with any veggies, such as celery, carrots, or whatever you like.  Use pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar (or a combination of the two).  Or simply make the recipe as-is and serve options on the side.  No matter which way you make it, if you like buffalo chicken and you like lasagna, you will love Buffalo Chicken Lasagna Cups!

Buffalo Chicken Lasagna Cups #SundaySupper

Yield: 12 lasagna cups

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce (I used Frank's buffalo wing sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 container (15 ounces) low fat ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese (optional)
  • 8 ounces steamed broccoli florets, chopped
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Cooking spray
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Poach chicken: Place chicken in medium pot, and add enough water to cover chicken. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce to a simmer; cook for 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat and let chicken stand, covered until cooked through (about 12 to 14 minutes). Remove chicken from liquid and shred with 2 forks.
  2. Make sauce: Whisk hot sauce, lemon juice, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder. Pour over warm, shredded chicken. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine ricotta cheese, broccoli, green onions and garlic.
  4. Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a standard 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  5. Layer 1: Place a wonton wrapper in each prepared muffin cup, pressing gently to fit pan. Next put a generous tablespoonful of ricotta mixture on top of wonton wrapper. Cover the ricotta cheese with buffalo chicken mixture and then sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Layer 2: Gently press another wonton wrapper on top of the cheddar cheese. Repeat layering with ricotta mixture, sauce and mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle tops with crushed red pepper, if desired.
  6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbling and wonton wrappers start to turn golden on the edges. Remove from oven and let site for 5 minutes. Serve warm!
