Creamy Chicken Lasagna

Picture from Cassie Craves

When I asked my husband what he wanted for his birthday meal this week he said "Oh, I don't know, you just choose something."First I was shocked.Then I got excited. Planning meals for me is so much fun.  Anyway, it was the perfect opportunity for me to try out this new recipe I spotted on Cassie Craves. I've already raved about the Rosemary Ranch Chicken from her blog , and this was just as big of a hit.

As the name implies is super creamy and cheesy. With moist nuggets of sauteed chicken, tender pasta noodles and just the right amount of Italian flavors, my whole family gobbled this up. Yep, you read that right. I ACTUALLY MADE A MEAL THAT EVERYONE IN MY FAMILY LIKES!  I served mine with a green salad and rolls. It was the perfect dinner for my perfect guy!

Creamy Chicken Lasagna
Cassie Craves

1 pound chicken breast, cubed into small pieces
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil

3 cloves minced garlic
2 cans cream chicken soup
1 8-ounce package cream cheese
2 cups sour cream
1 cup milk
1 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
1 box no-boil lasagna noodles
4 cups shredded Colby-jack or cheddar-jack cheese blend

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a large frying pan, cook chicken in olive oil and butter until the chicken is no longer pink. Remove chicken and keep warm.

3. Add garlic to pan; cook and stir for 30 seconds. Add cream soup, cream cheese, sour cream, milk, and chicken broth to the pan. Stir until ingredients melt and thicken slightly. Season with Italian seasoning and salt and pepper to taste. Add chicken and continue to stir. Turn heat down and simmer for 2 or 3 minutes.

4. Spread a thin layer of sauce in a greased 9 x 13 baking dish. Layer noodles (I used about 4 per layer), then cream sauce with chicken, then cheese (about 1 cup per layer). Continue to repeat until your pan is full, ending with cheese on top. Bake at 350 for 40 to 45 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
