Indulge in the comforting flavors of this Chicken and Broccoli Lasagna, a delightful twist on the classic Italian dish. Layers of tender chicken, vibrant broccoli, creamy sauce, and gooey cheese make this lasagna a crowd-pleaser.

Ingredients:

  • 9 lasagna noodles
  • 2 cups cooked chicken breast, shredded or diced
  • 2 cups broccoli florets, blanched
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 cups marinara sauce
  • 2 cups Alfredo sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray or olive oil.
  2. Cook the lasagna noodles according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Add the cooked chicken to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  5. In a bowl, mix together the cooked chicken and broccoli florets. Set aside.
  6. In another bowl, combine marinara sauce and Alfredo sauce. This creates a creamy tomato sauce that adds richness to the lasagna.
  7. Spread a thin layer of the sauce mixture on the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  8. Place three lasagna noodles on top of the sauce layer.
  9. Spread half of the chicken and broccoli mixture evenly over the noodles.
  10. Sprinkle one-third of the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses over the chicken and broccoli layer.
  11. Repeat the layers: sauce, noodles, remaining chicken and broccoli mixture, and another one-third of the cheeses.
  12. Top with the remaining three lasagna noodles, the rest of the sauce, and the remaining cheese.
  13. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  14. Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 15 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown.
  15. Once done, remove the lasagna from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing.
  16. Garnish with fresh basil leaves if desired, then serve and enjoy your delicious Chicken and Broccoli Lasagna!
