Can you say no to a bowl of pasta ever? We know that you cannot. Ravioli, penne, or spaghetti, pasta always holds a very special place in everyone’s heart. And in case it is chicken lasagne served on the table, then pasta lovers are certain to taste a bit.
Lasagne is one of the most sought-after Italian dishes. It is something that is guaranteed to impress everyone. Very few people are there who can resist that meaty, cheesy goodness. It is not just slightly lighter since the chicken never adds richer flavor or fat but it is quicker and easier to make since Bolognese doesn’t have to cook for a long time. Layering the lasagne with some grated mozzarella and cheddar adds the melty goodness that you want while you are having a plate of flavorsome lasagne.
Here you’ll get a chicken lasagne recipe, which will motivate you to make a cheesy, perfect one at home and impress your loved ones this weekend.
Ingredients and their proportions:
For the chicken filling:
• Boneless chicken 300 grams
• Black pepper powder 1 tablespoon
• Salt as per taste
• 1 lemon juice
• Paprika powder 1-1/2 teaspoon
For the lasagna:
• Lasagne sheets 10
• Shredded mozzarella cheese 1 cup
• Cheddar/Parmesan cheese
• Tomato basil pasta sauce 1 cup
• Chopped parsley leaves ½ cup
The way you can make the most popular Italian Delight:
To start making the Chicken lasagne, you need to first wash and clean the chicken properly. Now add some black pepper powder, paprika powder, lime juice, and salt to the chicken and mix everything well in a bowl.
Now cover the bowl with a lid and allow the chicken to marinate for at least 1-2 hours.
Add olive or vegetable oil into a frying pan. Now sauté the chicken pieces that you have marinated on medium heat until the chicken pieces get cooked properly. This would take you around 15-20 minutes.
Don’t forget to preheat your oven to 1700 c. Now it’s time to grease a baking dish (9 by 13 inch) with butter. Use a generous amount of butter for greasing so that the end product will taste sumptuous. Time to place a layer of lasagne sheet (of course, cooked) in one layer.
Add tomato pasta sauce, sprinkle some cheese, layer cooked chicken, and again sprinkle cheese on top of the chicken pieces. Now add finely chopped parsley at the same time. Repeat the layering process until you reach the pan’s top.
Bake your lasagne pasta in a preheated oven for 8-12 minutes. Or you can cook it until the cheese melts properly and the top turns brown slightly.
Allow the lasagne rest for 10 minutes approximately, then scatter the parsley leaves on top of it, cut it into squares, and just serve.
You can serve lasagne with some garlic bread, garlic rolls, fennel-pesto bread items, and a glass of wine. Isn’t it sounds like a perfect weekend dinner option?
So, no more going to or ordering Lasagne from the Italian restaurant that you love. Rather make a cheesy, meaty lasagne at home following this easy recipe.
