Creamy Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Lasagna! This is THE BEST lasagna recipe.. honestly, when I make it I end up eating it for breakfast if there’s any left! This meal takes a few steps to put together but it’s easily worth every second!
Layers of broccoli, cheese and chicken in a simple and creamy sauce make a perfect weeknight meal! I usually serve this with a side salad and some fresh bread … and it lasts us 2 dinners (a family of 6)… so it’s great!
- 2 cups cold milk
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 teaspoon olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1/3 cup light cream cheese (not fat free)
- 2/3 cup fresh parmesan cheese , shredded
- 1 1/4 cup cottage cheese
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon parsley
- 1 egg
- 12 lasagna noodles
- 3 cups cheddar cheese , divided
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
- 2 cups chopped carrots
- 5 cups chopped broccoli
- 2 cups cooked chicken
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Heat olive oil over medium heat in a pan, add garlic and stir until fragrant.
In a large bowl, whisk together cold milk and flour until flour is dissolved. Add to pan and continue whisking over medium heat until thickened, about 3-4 minutes.
Once thick and bubbly, remove pan from heat and stir in cream cheese, salt & parmesan cheese until smooth. Set aside to cool.
Cook lasagna noodles el dente according to package directions. Cook carrots and broccoli in boiling water about 2 minutes or just until very slightly cooked and bright green (do not over cook). Drain and run under cold water.
Place cooled parmesan sauce into a large bowl. Add seasonings, cottage cheese, egg and 2 cups cheddar cheese. Stir until combined and remove 1 cup of the mixture to set aside.
Stir chicken, carrots and broccoli into the remaining parmesan mixture.
Lay 4 lasagna noodles in a 9x13 pan. Add 1/2 of the broccoli mixture. Add 4 more noodles and remaining broccoli. Top with the last 4 noodles and reserved sauce.
Bake covered 45 minutes. Remove foil, add remaining cheeses and bake an additional 15 minutes.
Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
