- 10 uncooked lasagna noodles
- 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 can (12 ounces) tomato paste
- 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon dried basil
- 1-3/4 teaspoons salt, divided
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 3 cups 2% small-curd cottage cheese
- 1/2 cup egg substitute
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/3 cup minced fresh parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
- Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, broil chicken 6 in. from the heat until juices run clear; let stand for 15 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Shred chicken with two forks. Drain noodles; set aside.
- In a large nonstick skillet, combine the shredded chicken, tomatoes, tomato paste, mushrooms, onion, basil, 3/4 teaspoon salt and garlic powder. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes. In a bowl, combine the cottage cheese, egg substitute, Parmesan cheese, parsley, pepper and remaining salt.
- In a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray, place half of the noodles, overlapping them. Layer with half of the cheese mixture, chicken mixture and mozzarella. Repeat layers. Cover and bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly. Uncover; bake 5 minutes longer. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting. Yield: 12 servings.
Reviews forHerbed Chicken Lasagna
"I use a rotisserie chicken to save on prep time. I also don't simmer the mixture, I just put it together. I do cook the mushrooms ahead of time to sweat out the extra moisture though. I've made it this way several times and it always turns out amazingly! My family loves this recipe. I just wish I didn't have to cook the noodles first."
"I like chicken and I like lasagna so we can't lose! It was fun to take a standard dish and change it just a little with a really good result! The variety alone is worth the effort!"
"My family loves this! I am wondering if hands on prep could be cut down if you cooked the chicken in a crock pot with the tomatoes, mushrooms, onion and garlic. It would make the chicken easier to shred and that way the layers could be assembled when coming home from work. I'm going to try that next time."
"I would add ajvar or lutenica along with the tomato paste for a richer flavor layer."
"This is for CalMom62. The recipe is correct, stores sell 12 oz. tomato paste. I got mine from one of the super chains. However, if you can't find it in your area then you can buy the smaller cans."
"A 12-ounce can of tomato paste? Is that right? Where I am they only come in 5-ounce sizes..."
