Remove white and dark meat from cooked chicken and shred into smaller pieces. Discard skin and set chicken pieces aside.
Wash and slice zucchini lengthwise into ⅛-inch thick pieces. Lightly sprinkle both sides with salt and let sit 10 minutes. Dab both sides with paper towels to remove moisture.
Broil both sides of zucchini slices 2-3 minutes to cook a bit and remove more moisture. Set aside.
In a small bowl, stir together ricotta, Parmesan cheese, and egg. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 375° F. Lightly grease a 10x14 glass baking or casserole dish. Spread ⅔-cup of sauce over the bottom.
Create an even layer of the prepared zucchini slices over the sauce. Top with half of the ricotta mixture, then half of the chicken, and half of the remaining alfredo sauce. Sprinkle with 1-½ cups of mozzarella cheese.
Top with remaining zucchini slices, repeating the process for the second layer.
Cover with foil (leave space between the top of cheese and foil). Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove foil and bake 20 minutes more or until cheese is melted and lightly browned.
Cool on a wire rack about 15 minutes before cutting and serving.
Makes a 10x14 inch lasagna.
Omit the chicken for a vegetarian lasanga.
This recipe makes great use of leftover chicken breasts. You can use this instead of a whole chicken.
Zucchini has a lot of moisture. Salting zucchini ahead of time is a critical step. Otherwise, the moisture will draw out when baking, making the lasagna very soupy. Broil or grill the zucchini after this step to remove even more moisture and make it more tender.
The last step of assembly should always be shredded cheese. This way it melts on tops and browns during baking.
When covering with foil, leave a bit of space so the melted cheese doesn't stick to the foil.
Covering the lasagna with foil for the first half holds in heat and allows more even cooking of the center. It also prevents the cheese from burning.
Let cool slighlty before cutting so it can thicken up a bit. Otherwise is will be difficult and messy to cut.
