Chicken Lasagna


This is a great recipe. I didn't want "recipe poach" so I have given credit with a link to the author's website. She has some other great recipes, too.

Here is the recipe with my changes:

Chicken cooked, and shredded (it calls for a whole chicken, but I just did 2 large chicken breasts)
9 lasagna noodles, cooked (it calls for 12, but it was just too much noodle for us)
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cottage cheese (it calls for ricotta cheese)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 tsp minced garlic
chopped spinach, cooked (optional)
fresh or dried cilantro (I use parsley if I don't have any cilantro)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese (shredded or powder)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Mix sour cream, soups, cottage cheese, garlic, spinach and cilantro. Put small amount on bottom of pan so that the noodles don't stick. Place 3 noodles on the bottom. Put 1/3 of mixture over noodles. Put 1/3 of chicken over mixture. Put 1/4 of cheese over chicken. Layer 2 more times so that you have 3 layers. On the top, put remaining cheese and parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes to set up before serving.

This dish is REALLY great the next day as leftovers. My family really liked this dish and it was nice to try something different. It was pretty easy, too.

Lo-fat tip: Substitute sour cream for yogurt sour cream.
