Cheat's chicken lasagne

    1 hour 15 min

    A filling, creamy, cheesy chicken lasagne. There's no pre-cooking if you use fresh pasta. Even if you don't, just boil the lasagne sheets first, then simply layer all of the ingredients, and bake! You can use leftover chicken, if desired. But pre-cooked chicken from the supermarket works a treat.

    My husband and I really enjoyed this chicken lasagna. I also brought some to work after I froze some. And everyone at work wanted the receipe. Also, I used 12 noodles instead of 9. And I used the no-boil noodles. I let them soak in cold water for 20 mins. This way the noodles do not soak up all the liquid when cooking.  -  03 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was delicious! Even my picky boyfriend liked it. I used cream of mushroom soup with roasted garlic and cream of chicken with herbs- it gave it great flavor. I also added a package of frozen chopped broccoli for some extra veggies and some chopped green pepper. Next time I think I'll add red pepper to add color. Using frozen chopped cooked chicken, frozen broccoli and prechopped onion and pepper made putting this together a breeze! Its even better the next day too! will definitely make this again.  -  03 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is excellent!...I doubled the recipe first time I made it(mainly just so we could have leftovers).Knew it was going to go over well in my house and it sure did! Husband and kids all loved! Big time saver for me was just buying 2 rotisserie chickens and throwing it all together....made recipe exact, except added extra mushrooms and served it with Bruscetta and salad and topped it all off with an Italian Cream Cake. Thanks for a great lasagna recipe!  -  12 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
