Chicken Lasagna - Detours in Life

Chicken lasagna is a different take on the traditional lasagna recipe we all have had. This is a super easy dish to prepare and my kids love it. I found this recipe a few years ago on Pinterest and it has been a family favorite. The original recipe can be found over at What’s For Dinner?. I did decrease the amount of lasagna noodles for the recipe to ensure that it didn’t dry out. When laying, I would also suggest making sure all your chicken goes in the first two layers so you have mainly sauce on the top layer and cheese.

I already had shredded chicken in the freezer, but if you are in a hurry, you can always stop at the store and get a Rotisserie chicken and pull the meat off. I started off by cooking my lasagna noodles while I also started the sauce simmering.

After the sauce and noodles were complete, I began laying them in a 13 x 9 casserole dish. The layers I made were lasagna noodles, chicken mixture, cheeses, then noodles again. I ended with noodles on top and mostly the sauce without much chicken and finished with cheese on top.
