Ingredients:

For the Chicken Alfredo Filling:

  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded (rotisserie chicken works well)
  • 2 cups Alfredo sauce (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried basil)
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

For the Lasagna:

  • 9 lasagna noodles, cooked according to package instructions
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh basil leaves, for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

Prepare the Chicken Alfredo Filling:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded cooked chicken, Alfredo sauce, ricotta cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, and fresh or dried basil.
  2. Season the filling mixture with salt and black pepper to taste. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.

Assemble the Lasagna: 3. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  1. In a greased 9×13-inch baking dish, spread a thin layer of the chicken Alfredo filling to coat the bottom.
  2. Place 3 cooked lasagna noodles on top of the filling.
  3. Spread a generous portion of the chicken Alfredo filling over the noodles.
  4. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese and grated Parmesan cheese over the filling.
  5. Repeat this layering process two more times, ending with a layer of lasagna noodles on top.

Bake to Perfection: 9. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the lasagna is hot and bubbly.

  1. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the cheese is melted and slightly crispy.

Garnish and Serve: 11. Remove the Chicken Alfredo Lasagna from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing.

  1. Garnish with fresh basil leaves, if desired, for a burst of color and flavor.
  2. Serve this creamy, cheesy delight hot and enjoy the fusion of Italian and American flavors.

Cook’s Notes:

  • To save time, you can use store-bought Alfredo sauce, but homemade sauce adds a personal touch to the dish.
  • If you prefer a vegetable addition, consider incorporating sautéed spinach, mushrooms, or steamed broccoli into the filling.
  • Letting the lasagna rest for a few minutes after baking helps it set, making it easier to slice and serve.
  • This Chicken Alfredo Lasagna pairs beautifully with a side salad or garlic bread for a complete meal.

  Chicken Alfredo Lasagna is a creamy and decadent fusion of Italian and American cuisine that’s sure to please even the most discerning palates.
