    Prep: 35 min. Bake: 45 min.
  • Makes
    10 servings

Ingredients

  • 10 lasagna noodles
  • 3/4 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons herbes de Provence
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 4 cups spaghetti sauce
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
  • Additional minced fresh parsley, optional

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with herbs de Provence, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 5-7 minutes or until no longer pink; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine ricotta, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, milk, parsley and remaining salt and pepper. Add chicken.
  • Drain noodles. Spread 1 cup spaghetti sauce into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Spread 1/3 cup chicken mixture over each noodle; carefully roll up. Place seam side down over sauce. Top with remaining sauce and Parmesan cheese.
  • Cover and bake 30 minutes. Uncover; top with mozzarella cheese. Bake 15-20 minutes longer or until bubbly and cheese is melted. Top with additional parsley if desired.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Common olive oil works better for cooking at high heat than virgin or extra-virgin oil. These higher grades have ideal flavor for cold foods, but they smoke at lower temperatures.
  • In Europe, Parmigiano-Reggiano and Parmesan are considered the same cheese. But in the U.S., Parmesan is a generic term that may not come from Italy’s Parmigiano-Reggiano region. Using the authentic Italian cheese (in a lesser amount than the original’s ½ cup) ensures a cheesy richness in the makeover with less fat and calories.

  • Editor's Note
    Look for herbes de Provence in the spice aisle.
