This versatile chicken and veggie lasagna recipe is a twist on a classic dish that has a special place in many people’s hearts - but this version is definitely giving the original a run for its money! Creamy, savory, and packed with protein, it always seems to find its way back on our dinner table. And *bonus points* this dish reheats so well it might taste even better the second day!

You will need:

  • One rotisserie chicken (time-saving hack: Buy a pre-made hot rotisserie chicken from your local grocery store)
  • Lasagna noodles (oven-ready)
  • One white onion
  • Broccoli
  • Spinach
  • Chopped garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ cups chicken broth
  • 1 ½ cups half and half (or equal parts heavy cream and milk)
  • 5-6 oz fresh, chopped spinach
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • ½-1 tsp black pepper
  • 5 oz ricotta (usually the same as one container)
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup parsley
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese
  • 3 cups mozzarella cheese

How to make it:

  1. Shred your rotisserie chicken and season with a little bit of salt and pepper.
  2. Chop your onion, parsley, spinach, broccoli, and garlic.
  3. Place a large pot over medium heat and add your olive oil and chopped onion. Let cook for 3 minutes, mixing occasionally. Add in your broccoli and cook for another 2 minutes or until the broccoli has softened.
  4. Add your butter and flour and stir for 3 minutes until flour is lightly golden. Add your chicken broth and half and half. Add your seasonings. Stir until smooth until it’s thickened into a gravy-like consistency.
  5. Add in your chopped garlic and spinach, take the pot off the heat as soon as the spinach has wilted. Check for seasoning and set aside to cool.
  6. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Combine your ricotta cheese, 2 cups of the mozzarella cheese, your parmesan, and parsley.
  7. Spread some of the spinach sauce to the bottom of your oven-safe casserole dish, then add your lasagna noodles on top. Then add half of the ricotta mixture on top. Then add half of your shredded chicken. Ladle ⅓ of the spinach sauce on top of the chicken. Repeat the process, and finally sprinkle on the remaining mozzarella.
  8. Cover in foil and bake for 45 minutes.
  9. Uncover and broil for 2-5 minutes to brown the cheese crust. YUMMY!
  10. Let it rest for about 5-8 minutes, then serve and enjoy!
