Chicken Lasagna

Lasagna is one of my favorite foods, especially the leftovers. I think because the pasta soaks up all the yummy flavors as it sits. Years ago I found a pile of different Lasagna recipes, some were very similar to the one that I make all the time, but others were very different. I always thought I would try them out on my family, but I never did and now I can't find the recipes...but I remember one that stood out in my mind was a recipe for "Chicken Lasagna". I found a recipe similar to the one I use to have and made some adjustments to it to fit my families liking a little bit more. I have to say that I was surprised at how fast my family gobbled this dish up. They all loved it. It's a nice change from traditional Lasagna.

Chicken Lasagna

1-2 cloves minced garlic
2 T. BUTTER (use the real stuff)
6 chicken breast, cubed into small pieces
2 cans cream chicken soup
1-8 oz cream cheese
2 c. sour cream
1 c. milk
1 box lasagna noodles prepared according to package instructions
4 c. grated cheese (I used Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheese)

In a large frying pan saute minced garlic in melted butter. Cook for 2-3 minutes then add cream soup, cream cheese, sour cream and milk, stir until ingredient melts and thickens. Add chicken and continue to stir. Turn heat down and simmer.

In a 9x13 baking dish layer noodles, then cream sauce with chicken, then cheese. Continue to repeat until your pan is full, ending with cheese on top. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

Happy Cooking~

  5. Made this with fat free sour cream and cream cheese. It was still very yummy. We made the bruschetta to go with it.
