Cheesy One Pot Chicken Lasagna
Welcome to cheesy heaven. This one pot lasagna is delicious, hearty, comforting, and is made in 30 minutes or less. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself and see.
If you come home from work late at night and you need a fresh idea to feed the hubs and the kids, look no further, this no fuss One Pot Chicken Lasagna will do the trick! Easy enough to serve it during the week, and elegant enough for entertaining. This recipe serves 4, so if you’re using for a party, simply use a bigger pot and double the amount of ingredients needed.
Don’t know about you, but I get bored with the same old chicken recipes I make every week. Granted they are good, but sometimes you need to mix it up, or add something else to the rotation. Since the weather has been cold in Miami (believe it or not), this Cheesy One Pot Chicken Lasagna is just what we need. And don’t forget, it does not require a lot of clean up.
Lasagnas are super delicious, but cooking them the old way has proved to be messy and time-consuming: first we have to boil the lasagna noodles and carefully remove them from the pot without breaking them, then we have to cook the beef with the tomato sauce, then the ricotta part. Finally, when you think you are finished, you have to bake the whole dish for about an hour or so. Who wants to go through all of that when you can simplify your life with just ONE POT?
You must be thinking, but how can it be possible to make it in 30 minutes? Well, my friends, I took a shortcut and used leftover chicken from last night. Don’t have leftover chicken? Simply get some rotisserie ones or cook a few chicken breasts and slice into bite size pieces.
