One of my favorite things about Fall is warm and delicious comfort food. It hasn’t even gotten very cool in New Orleans yet, but we’ve already made chicken pot pies, chicken and dumplings, and many other yummy dishes. Tonight we tried a new recipe — Cheesy Chicken Lasagna. It was delicious! We will definitely be making it again! Recipe from here, originally from here.
Here is the recipe:
Cheesy Chicken Lasagna
2 cans (12 oz) evaporated milk (not fat-free)
1 (1 oz) pkg. dry Ranch dressing mix
3 C. cubed, cooked, chicken
1/8 tsp pepper
1 (12oz) lasagna noodles, cooked
1 1/2 C cheddar cheese, grated
1 1/2 C mozzarella cheese, grated
Cook the chicken and noodles first at the same time. Once noodles are done–rinse in cold water and set aside (it keeps them from sticking together). Combine evaporated milk (don’t use fat-free version) and Ranch dressing in a 3 quart heavy saucepan. Heat over low heat, stirring frequently until dry ingredients are dissolved. Stir in chicken and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, 25 minutes (don’t do any less), stirring frequently. Layer half of lasagna noodles, poultry sauce, and cheese in well-buttered 9×13 pan. Repeat layers again. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
For extra cheesiness, increase both cheeses by 1/2 cup.
