  1. Preheat and Prep:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Lightly grease a baking dish with a bit of oil or non-stick spray.
  2. Season the Chicken:
    • Place the thinly sliced chicken breasts in a large bowl. Add the dry Ranch seasoning and toss until the chicken pieces are evenly coated with the seasoning.
  3. Layer the Ingredients:
    • Arrange half of the thinly sliced zucchini in a single layer at the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
    • Place the seasoned chicken slices evenly over the zucchini layer.
    • Scatter the cooked, chopped bacon pieces over the chicken.
    • Arrange the remaining zucchini slices on top of the bacon layer.
  4. Add the Cheese:
    • Sprinkle the shredded Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese evenly over the top of the zucchini.
  5. Bake:
    • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes.
    • After 25 minutes, remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and golden, and the chicken is thoroughly cooked through.
  6. Serve:
    • Let the bake sit for a few minutes after removing it from the oven to allow the juices to settle.
    • Serve warm, garnished with fresh herbs like parsley or basil if desired.
