Ingredients

For the Veggie Chips:

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 Teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon rosemary
  • 3 Cups thinly sliced yellow squash
  • 3 Cups thinly sliced zucchini

For the Buffalo Chicken Dip:

  • 4 light spreadable cheese wedges, softened
  • 1 1/2 Cup plain, low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 Cup light ranch dressing
  • 1/4 Cup hot pepper sauce
  • 12.5 Ounces can chicken breast, packed in water, drained
  • 1 Cup shredded, reduced-fat Colby and Monterey Jack cheese

Directions

For the Veggie Chips:

Preheat oven to 400° F.

Whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and rosemary together in a large mixing bowl.

Add yellow squash and zucchini, and gently mix to coat.

On a large, lightly-greased baking sheet, arrange yellow squash and zucchini slices in a single layer.

Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, until crisp.

For the Buffalo Chicken Dip:

Meanwhile, mix all dip ingredients until smooth, and transfer dip mixture to a small, lightly-greased baking dish.

Once chips are removed from the oven, add dip mixture and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned, hot and bubbling.
