You will perhaps find a few more references in Rinzai Zen, given that Hakuin Zenji wrote extensively on the trikaya viz a viz the four Jnanas.
In classical Zen, you can find discourses on it from the Platform Sutra, Hui Hai among others. Also Linji, who was himself a yogacara specialist.

It's a brief commentary on Tozan's Five Ranks, relating them to actualization of the Four Wisdoms/Three Bodies. It describes Zen's gate which is the recognition of one's own Dharmakaya wisdom (kensho/Great Perfect Mirror Wisdom), the subsequent actualization of Sambhogakaya (i.e. embodiment/integration through practice of the Jewel Mirror Samadhi, which is fulfillment of the Universal Nature Wisdom), and finally Nirmanakaya as the free functioning within activity (fulfillment of the Marvelous Observing Wisdom and Perfecting-of-Action Wisdom).
A quote from the Sixth Patriarch in that text sums all of this up: "The pure Dharmakaya is your nature; the perfect Sambhogakaya is your wisdom; the myriad Nirmanakayas are your activities".
