Chicken Lasagna

Total Time:
2 hr 15 min
1 hr
15 min
1 hr

8 servings

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 3 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 (4-ounce) jar pimientos, chopped
  • 1 (8 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 (8-ounce) can mushroom soup
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 6 lasagna noodles, cooked and drained
  • 6 ounces shredded mozzarella

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Heat the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and green peppers and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are soft and translucent, about 15 minutes. Add the chicken, pimientos, mushroom soup, and chicken broth. Simmer the mixture until the flavors blend and the sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.

Spoon about 1/3 of the chicken mixture into a medium baking dish. Arrange 2 of the noodles over the chicken; repeat layers of chicken and noodles twice more. Top the lasagna with cheese, cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake until the cheese is nicely browned, about 10 minutes. Remove the lasagna from the oven and allow it to set for 5 minutes, then serve.

    A very tasty, pleasing dish! My family enjoyed it so much and has given permission to fix it again!! Very simple and easy to fix. Will definitely add it to my collection!
    I used ground chicken with spicy turkey sausage (removed casing and smashed up a bit) and added olives with pimientos to the mixture. I used 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup (no cream of chicken soup) and an extra 1/2 cup of chicken broth. I took it to a family reunion and it all went with rave comments!
    I used 6 chicken breasts cut into tiny bite size pieces and stir fryed them in olive oil. I personally spiced them up with Mrs. Dash, garlic salt, pepper, oregano, and sweet basil. I then stir fried green, yellow, orange, and red diced peppers in olive oil. Combine chicken, peppers, one can of fat free cream of chicken, and one jar of Alfredo sauce. You will need about 1/4 cup of chicken broth. Mix together in same pan you were stir frying in (I actually used a wok). Layer pan with Lasagna noodle, 1/2 of chicken mixture, and combination of motzerrella, monterey jack, and parmesan cheeses, Lasagna noodle, 1/2 of chicken mixture, and cheeses, Lasagna noodle and top with cheese. I used one bag of shredded motz. cheese, 1 bag of shredded parmesan cheese, and one bag of shredded monterey jack cheese and mixed them all up in a big bowl - you will divide it 3 times for your layers. I cooked on 350 for about 30 minutes or until you like the looks of the cheese. Everything is actually already cooked so it is just up to you how long you let the cheese melt. IT IS FABULOUS!!
    Was a great lasagna, but better as a sauce/gravy over rice.
     Omitted mushroom soup and used the cream of chicken instead. Added 1 cup of the veggies, plus red peppers.
    this recipe is easy to make and tastes great. my family just loves it.
    I made this for a church dinner this past Saturday night and it got rave reviews from everyone and multiple requests for the recipe! Someone might want to edit the recipe though, the step to add the cream of chicken soup is missing; I just added it at the same time as I did the cream of mushroom. Anyone ever made it with fat free cream soups? My husband and I thought the chicken mixture would also be good as a pot pie with maybe a puff pastry's yummy!
    This "lasagna" has a rather bland flavor....much more like that of a chicken casserole. It made us think..."This is missing something". The idea is a good one though. Next time I'll just use bottled alfredo sauce instead of the soups and I'll leave out the green pepper and maybe replace it with spinach. I think that will produce a much more flavorful lasagna.
    This lasagna needs work the cook times are off for the entire thing.when we
     thought it was done it wasn't so we had to put it back into the oven and bake it some more.when we did it got over done.If anyone makes this make sure
     your noodles are completely done if not
     you'll be eating paste
    a little runnier than what i would've wanted but very very good
    I think that was the best lasagna I've ever tasted in a long time.My whole entire family enjoyed it. I commend whoever created that recipe. Thank you Pauline Konitzer for creating the best meal my family and I've had in years!
    This recipe is great for those who don't eat a lot of red meat. I tend to stick with chicken a lot, so this was perfect. I made my own adjustments (skipping the pimentos, adding cream of mushroom soup with herbs, low carb noodles, etc.) and it turned out better the second time that I made it. I received nothing but compliments on this dish. Love it!
    The chicken sauce was very delicious but i added a few of my own ideas, I used the mozerrella cheese but also added ricotta and a mexican blend cheese. It was very delicious.
    We loved it. I did as reviewers said added more Mozzarella cheese 8 oz. and 1/2 cup mushrooms. Used 1/2 cup extra chicken broth added with chicken,mushroom and cream of chicken soups, then used lasagne noodles I did not have to boil. Put them in hard between layers of sauce and chicken cooked under foil in oven in 13x9 as directed came out great.Use canned or cook a chicken, worth it. Easy mix, pour and layer and enjoy.
    This recipe is not only delicious, but is so easy...I added mushrooms and extra cheese between layers, besides cheese on top.
    A little bland, not enough cheese, didn't have enough to do 3 layers - could only do 2. Still tasted good tho.
    Lasagna filling came out kinda thin. Mushroom Soup should be Cream of Mushroom Soup and No place to add Cream of Chicken Soup(see above "Karen from Wilmington). Recipe should be changed to accomodate these mistakes. Other than that, I found this recipe a wonderful change from standard lasagna. I already reccomended it to friends.
