How To Make Easy Chicken Lasagna At Home | Easy Chicken Lasagna Recipe

Highlights

Can we ever say no to a delicious bowl of pasta? Well, we know we can't! Penne, spaghetti or ravioli, pasta holds a special place in our hearts. And if it is lasagne on the table, pasta lovers are sure to slurp a little! Lasagne is a type of flat pasta that is believed to be possibly the oldest. It is made with stacked layers of pasta alternating with delicious sauces along with cheese, veggies or meat. And if you are someone who loves to dig-in all things cheesy, then lasagne is the perfect dish for you.

Lasagne is one of the most popular Italian delights globally with a lip-smacking repertoire of variety. Crunchy veggies (or juicy meat) seamlessly layered with oodles of cheese and béchamel sauce make for a yummy brunch dish, isn't it? And while penne arrabbiata or alfredo pasta seem to be quite an easy ones to make at home, thanks to readymade packs and quick microwave recipes, lasagne is yet to have a reputation of an easy homemade recipe. But we have a chicken lasagne recipe that might make you consider making a perfect, cheesy one at home and surprise the kids this weekend!

No more ordering from or going to that Italian restaurant you love, you can make that perfect lasagne at home! In this chicken lasagne recipe, lasagne is prepared fresh with pasta dough and assembled over freshly made creamy homemade béchamel sauce. It is layered with succulent chicken dumplings made of minced chicken, seared and cooked in white wine, baked to perfection and served with a garnishing of truffle oil. The béchamel sauce used in this recipe is a creamy melange of milk, sautéed mushrooms, morels, onion and flour which lends a rich texture to the lasagne.

The pasta dough would need a few hours to rest, so plan accordingly. You can make the dough a night before and let it rest if you plan to make it for brunch.

A fuss-free lasagne recipe made from scratch which is not just a delicious affair but also a fun kitchen activity to try with kids, who might love to prepare a treat for themselves!

Creamy pulled chicken-and-mushroom lasagne

Pan-fry the portabellini and brown mushrooms in 2–3 T olive oil over a high heat until golden, then remove from the pan.

Add 50 g butter and 1 T olive oil to the same pan and soften the leeks over a lower heat, then add the garlic and mushrooms and fry for 5 minutes.

Toss the chicken into the pan, then add the stock. Simmer for 10 minutes, then stir in 1 cup cream and season to taste.

Layer the chicken mixture and pasta in a large, ovenproof dish. Scatter the shimeji mushrooms over the final pasta layer, then pour over the remaining cream and scatter with Parmesan.

Brush any exposed pasta with melted butter and bake for 35 minutes, brushing the top of the pasta with more butter every 10 minutes and adding more Parmesan if you like.

Recipe: Creamy Chicken, Bacon & Mushroom Lasagne

Lasagne is a firm favourite in my house. But bombarded with regular requests from the kids to make lasagna for dinner, I came up with this easy and delicious recipe to mix it up a bit.

I generally cook the chicken sauce part of the recipe in the slow cooker when I am going to have a busy day out of the house, but it can also be done on the stove if you’d prefer.

Lasagne Ingredients

  • 4 large chicken breasts or 8 chicken thighs
  • 250g diced bacon
  • 6 mushrooms
  • 2 cans of condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 ½ cups of water
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • Tailor the recipe to your own tastes by adding your favourite chopped vegetables, e.g. onion, spinach, mushroom, celery, leek, carrots, etc
  • This is a great opportunity to hide some vegetables for those with fussy eaters.
  • Lasagne sheets
  • Lasagne sauce or similar cheesey sauce (you can make your own béchamel sauce of course, but I use the jar when I am particularly time poor.
  • Grated cheese to top

To make the meat sauce:

  • Brown diced chicken in a pan. Add to the slow cooker.
  • Cook diced bacon in a pan and add to cooker.
  • Add your chosen chopped up veggies to the slow cooker pot.
  • Add the chicken soup, water, and sour cream to the pot, put on the lid, turn it on and leave to cook while you go out somewhere with the kids!

You can cook it all in a pan of course in a fraction of the time, but I like to do my in the slow cooker when I have a busy day ahead so I can come home to a half cooked meal, and besides, I love how tender the chicken is after being in the slow cooker.

To make the lasagne:

  • Spoon a layer of creamy chicken concoction into a lasagne dish, top with lasagne sheets. Repeat, repeat, and repeat again (depending on the size of your dish etc, or until you’ve used up all the meat sauce.
  • Top last layer of lasagne with cheese sauce, sprinkle with grated cheese and cook on 200 c for 35 minutes or until the pasta sheets are cooked through. Time will depend on the type of sheets you have used (fresh take less time) so it is best to refer to your packaging for more accurate cook time.

To serve:

Delicious with a garden salad, or steamed vegetables e.g. broccoli or asparagus. I always feel like the plate needs some green with this meal.
