chicken lasagna

Lasagna has become one of my favorite dishes this winter and this is a really nice variation. You can add cream for a really rich sauce. (Good for 6 people)

What you need

Olive oil and butter for frying
750g cooked and sliced chicken breasts
1 onion diced
1 cup pasta marinara sauce
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 cup cheddar grated cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 boxes par cooked lasagna sheets
Salt and pepper to taste

The process

In a frying pan with some olive oil and a little butter, cook the onions until soft and add the garlic.

Add the cooked chicken and salt and pepper to taste. You can add the chicken breasts uncooked at this stage and cook until white.

Now add the pasta marinara sauce or similar tomato sauce of your choice and about 125ml cream if you need real comfort food.

Your pasta should be boiled for about 7 minutes before you begin constructing the lasagna.

Butter a baking dish well and put 1 layer of pasta on the bottom, then a layer of the chicken sauce mixture and sprinkle over a layer of cheese.

Repeat until you reach the top of the dish and finish with a layer of pasta, Top with the remaining cheese and set in a 180 Celsius oven for 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and slightly browned in places.
