Chicken Lasagna

Chicken Lasagna 1

Lasagna is our favorite Italian dish. It is also easy to make. Have used chopped chicken breasts  in this recipe.

I have used Barilla spicy marinara. You can use any brand of marinara.

I use an 8 inch square glass dish for this recipe. So I used 6 sheets of Barilla no boiling required pasta.

Ingredients:

  • Oil – 1 + 1/2 tbsps
  • Minced garlic – 3 big cloves
  • Onion – 1/2 cup finely chopped
  • Finely chopped chicken pieces – 1 lb
  • Salt
  • Pepper powder
  • Heavy cream – 1/4 cup
  • Marinara sauce – 737 g
  • Ricotta cheese – 15 oz,I used part skim ricotta cheese
  • Grated Parmesan cheese – 1 cup + more for topping
  • Dried Basil – 1/2 tsp
  • No Boiling required/ Oven ready lasagna sheets – 6 sheets
  • Shredded Mozzarella cheese – 8 oz

Method:

  • Heat oil in a saucepan.
  • Add minced garlic and finely chopped onion to the oil and saute until the onions turn transparent.
  • Add the chopped chicken, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper powder.
  • When the chicken is half-cooked, add heavy cream.
  • When the chicken is fully cooked, add the marinara sauce and let it cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix grated Parmesan cheese,ricotta cheese, basil, salt and 1/4 tsp pepper powder.
  • Divide the cheese mixture and spread it on the 6 lasagna sheets and set then aside.
  • Spread a thin layer of chicken sauce in the bottom of a 8 inch square baking dish.
  • Place 2 lasagna sheets coated with cheese mixture in the pan. The cheese mixture facing upwards.
  • Sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese.
  • Pour the chicken sauce over the cheese.
  • Now, place 2 lasagna sheets coated with cheese mixture in the pan. The cheese mixture facing upwards.
  • Sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese.
  • Pour the chicken sauce over the cheese.
  • Place the last 2 lasagna sheets coated with cheese mixture in the pan. The cheese mixture facing downwards.
  • Pour the remaining chicken sauce over the lasagna sheet and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Spray oil on a sheet of aluminum foil and cover the lasagna tray.
  • To prevent spills while baking, place the lasagna dish on a baking tray lined with foil.
  • Bake the lasagna for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Rotate the lasagna dish half way while baking.
  • Let the lasagna cool down a bit before serving.
