Hey lovelies! Well I think the Blogtember challenge must've tired me out a little because I took like a (unintentional) two week blogging break lol. And here I was all jazzed to keep blogging regularly... yeah, typical me. But I'm now back and with a delish recipe for all you foodies out there! Another Italian dish... don't know what is up with me and Italian food, it's kinda all ever I want to cook.
This easy lasagna recipe is one of my favorite meals and has become a staple in my home. It’s lasagna with a twist, chicken instead of ground beef! If you’re a chicken lover like me this is definitely for you! Plus it could not be simpler to whip up!
You might be skeptical of lasagna with chicken but trust me, it actually rivals the traditional version.
Creamy Chicken Lasagna -
(recipe found @ http://www.sixsistersstuff.com)
Cream cheese, shredded chicken, chicken bouillon, and mozzarella cheese make up the creamy filling for this lasagna.
In the interest of full discloser, the spaghetti sauce I used did have some beef in it, so it wasn’t completely beef free. Thus why you can kinda see it in the picture. But it actually worked really well with it.
Top it off with some more sauce, mozzarella, and a generous sprinkle of Italian seasoning and put this baby in the oven!
Serve with some garlic bread and dig in! :)
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
6 uncooked lasagna noodles
1 cube chicken bouillon
1/4 cup hot water
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 (26 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
Italian seasoning, to taste
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook lasagna noodles for 8-10 minutes, drain, rinse in cold water and set aside. Place chicken in a saucepan and boil for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from saucepan and shred. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dissolve the bouillon cube in hot water. In a large bowl, combine chicken, bouillon water, cream cheese and 1 cup mozzarella.
Spread 1/3 of spaghetti sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Cover with the chicken mixture and top with 3 lasagna noodles. Repeat layers. Top with remaining sauce and mozzarella. Sprinkle on Italian seasoning , to taste. Bake for 45 minutes. Makes 6 - 8 servings.
