Herbed Chicken Lasagna
Total TimePrep: 50 min. Bake: 30 min. + standing
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.
GREAT recipe! I roasted chicken the day before and had chicken leftover. The only thing I added was a dash or two of red pepper and sugar. Yummy
This was good and I did enjoy the lighter version, however, some things are just worth it to me in the traditional version even if it does pack a few more calories. I try to lighten up traditional beef lasagna by using lean ground beef, and reduced fat cottage and ricotta cheese.
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.
This is excellent and so easy to make. To save on prep pans, I cut the chicken in small cubes and sauteed in the pan (instead of broiling it) before adding the other veggies and sauce ingredients and it worked out fine. Will definitely be making again (and again). :)
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.
This is a great recipe. I know the chicken part of it sounds weird, but it is very good. I used skim ricotta, Egg Beaters, and also ran the chicken through a food processor to make it finely ground. It was excellent!
A 12-ounce can of tomato paste? Is that right? Where I am they only come in 5-ounce sizes...
