Chicken Spinach Lasagna



• 1 (8 ounce) package lasagna noodles
• 2 cups heavy cream
• 1 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
• 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
• 1/4 cup butter
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 1/2 large onion, diced
• 4 cloves garlic, sliced
• 5 mushrooms, diced
• 2 roasted chicken breasts , shredded
• salt and ground black pepper to taste
• 1 cup ricotta cheese
• 1 bunch fresh spinach, rinsed
• 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna noodles for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente. Drain, and rinse with cold water.
2. In a saucepan over low heat, mix together heavy cream, cream of mushroom soup, Parmesan cheese, and butter. Simmer, stirring frequently, until well blended.
3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion in olive oil until tender, then add garlic and mushrooms. Mix in the chicken, and cook until heated through. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Lightly coat the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish with enough of the cream sauce mixture to coat. Layer with 1/3 of the lasagna noodles, 1/2 cup ricotta, 1/2 of the spinach, 1/2 the chicken mixture, and 1 cup mozzarella. Top with 1/2 the cream sauce mixture, and repeat the layers. Place the remaining noodles on top, and spread with remaining sauce.
5. Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until brown and bubbly. Top with the remaining mozzarella, and continue baking until cheese is melted and lightly browned.


  1. Catching up with you Cynthia. Sorry I am so far behind. What time are you serving dinner? Chuckle!

    Love the but(s)...

    Have a breathtaking week. TTFN ~ Marydon

  2. Sounds delicious girl! I will have to make the chicken lasagna when my husband is out of town. He won't eat anything with boiled chicken in it...can you imagine? That little quirk completely cuts out most casseroles. My boys will love it though!

    We had Fall Break last weekend. I went to San Antonio to visit one of my really good friends. It was so much fun!

  3. Gulp, this sounds so amazing! Wish I weren't on a diet :-( But I'm going to try this next time I "fall off the wagon" shhhh
