Creamy Chicken Lasagna

"A wonderful variation on the lasagna theme. Light white sauce and a great taste. I have had this recipe for years, but I think I found it "First" magazine. This can be use for OAMC as well. I use no-cook lasagna noodles to simplify process."

    My family loved this twist on lasagne.I usually cant please everybody at the same meal,but i got the thumbs up with this.Not a single leftover.Next time I'll make two batches.Be patient it takes a little time to make, but well worth the effort.

    This was really good. A little time consuming but it was worth it. I used a little more cheese than it called for just because we like it real cheesy. It was a very nice change from the "red" lasagna!

    I thought I had all I needed to make this but when it came timeto put the tomatoes in I did't have any. I subtituted 2 small cans of diced rotel tomatoes. It spiced it up but was delicous. Also i used leftover turkey instead of chicken. I intend to follow the exact recipe next time . But it was great with the rotel.

    when preparing this i didn't have any thyme or tarragon so i substitued oregano and added a little more basil. i also sauted some green bell pepper & garlic w/the vegetables. this was a very nice change from ordinary lasagna which can be so heavy. i will make this again and have actually passed this on to one of my husband's coworkers!!


I live in the San Francisco area and love it here. I discovered Recipezaar (then Kitchen) in 2001 and have been so happy to have my favorite recipes stored safely here. I am mother to 7 and grandmother to 7. I love to knit, smock, sew, etc., but my favorite hobby of the moment is traditional rug hooking. This is a sample of what I do.? It's called "November".? I dyed most of the wool myself. It is made from wool flannel, cut into strips a little less than 1/4" and then worked into a linen backing. This is my 3rd rug.
