Here is a fun alternative to your normal lasagna. I found this recipe at What’s for Dinner? It is so delicious and not that complicated to make. I love the chicken and ranch flavor to it. You can increase the cheese too it you like it extra cheesy. Yummy, nice comfort food. The Easy Parmesan Knots would go great with this dish, then add a tossed salad and dinner’s done.
The only problem I had with the recipe is there were too many noodles for the amount of chicken sauce mixture. I would recommend reducing the noodles to 8-12 oz.
Cheesy Chicken Lasagna
2 (12 oz) cans evaporated milk (not fat-free)
1 (1 oz) pkg. dry Ranch dressing mix
3 C. cubed, cooked, chicken
1/8 tsp pepper
1 (16oz) lasagna noodles, cooked (I recommend reducing it to 8 oz to 12 oz)
1 1/2 to 2 C cheddar cheese, grated
1 1/2 to 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.
