Watch Us Make: Buffalo Chicken LasagnaThis comfort-food mash-up meal gives traditional lasagna a kicky twist.

One of our new favorite recipes dishes up major chicken wing flavor in a convenient 13x9 casserole dish. Kitchen wizard Melissa Millwood of Lyman, South Carolina created this contest-winning Buffalo Chicken Lasagna recipe to satisfy her daughter's love for Buffalo wings in a more nourishing way than a dip.

Imagine the cheesy layers of a classic Italian lasagna, but with totally new flavors. Ground chicken makes a base, wing sauce lends a spicy kick and blue cheese enriches a ricotta-mozzarella-cheddar mixture. The addition of crunchy celery breaks up the creaminess.

The casserole is a showstopper at weeknight dinners or potlucks (have you ever heard of a more appropriate game day dish?). Like the rest of our favorite comfort food mash-up meals, this layered lasagna is destined to become an extra-fun addition to your dinnertime rotation.
