Chicken Lasagna

This is a nice change to regular lasagna, with the yummy white sauce, mushrooms and chicken. I present to you this cheesy goodness, even though in the photo it looks like a big, lonely piece of lasagna since I took a picture of it without the sides so you could see it better. By the way, I only make half of a batch and put it in a loaf pan so it's the right amount for us.
Chicken Lasagna
3 - 4 chicken breasts (2 c.)
9 cooked lasagna noodles
1 lb. mozzarella cheese, grated
1 lg. carton cottage cheese
2 eggs
Parmesan cheese
1/3 c. margarine
8 oz fresh mushrooms, sliced
½ t. salt
1 t. minced garlic
1 t. lemon juice
¼ c. flour
2 t. chicken bouillon
3 c. milk
1 T. parsley

Stew and season meat, cut up into bite size pieces, set aside. Mix cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese, and eggs. Set aside. In a skillet, sauté margarine, mushrooms, salt, garlic powder, and lemon juice for 5 minutes. Add bouillon and flour, mix well. Add milk and parsley. Stir until thickened and add chicken. In a 9x13-inch baking dish, layer 1/2 c. sauce, noodles, cottage cheese mixture, mozzarella cheese. End layers with sauce and cheese. Bake at 350° for 20-30 minutes until golden brown on top and bubbly.

  1. Your 9x13 pan looks extra deep. Too bad we don't live closer because we could have a luncheon and eat that yummy lasagna. Our 2 year old and myself are the only ones who love mushrooms whole.

  3. I'm going to try this one and see how it turns out when I add spinach to it. I do that with my regular lasagna and I don't feel guilty because there is a vegetable included = )

    I know. I'm a dork Valerie. Btw, I am going to email you a recipe for quick and cheap "gringo" enchiladas that my friends think is a lasana and you tell me what you think. Keep in mind, I do not use recipes so I am just guestimating when I do stuff.

  4. Pam, I forgot to mention at first that I used a loaf pan, but I corrected it now. You are definitely too far for a luncheon, but if you're ever out in Utah, maybe we can.

    May, please do send me the recipe. I am looking for some quick recipes! And I think adding spinach is an awesome idea. I think I'll do that next time. Thanks for the idea.

  5. This looks great!
    I cooked a regular lasagna last night for dinner.. and my husband and I were the only good eaters. It was a waste. I think my kids would do better with this.. I may have to pick out the mushrooms for them.. but that's ok.. more for me!

  6. Valerie,
    I just sent it to your email and if you can recommend any good chilies or spices to use in the recipes,please let me know. It's also good when you want to make a mass amount for guest and keep it within a reasonable budget.
