Sinful Chicken Alfredo Lasagna

The most decadent lasagna you will ever have. Stuffed with chicken, mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, pesto, and a ton of cheese! Swoon worthy! Small Town Girl Blog.

Bless me health gods, for I have sinned. It’s been a few days since my last confession. I’ve had impure thoughts about chicken, swimming in cheese sauce with carb filled pasta and more cheese. I tried to repent by adding tomatoes and mushrooms, but oh the pesto. I know it may be a sin to swoon over such wanton combinations of delectable savory flavor, but how can I deny such exquisite divinity?

Oh yeah, I went there! This is so rich and decadent I will only make it twice a year at max! After a few bites, you will find yourself overcome with the pure ecstacy of this dish. It’s that good. Chicken fettuccine Alfredo times 10! If you want to rock on your feet and practically pass out from creamy, garlicky, cheesy goodness, give it a whirl. You’re hips may regret it, but your taste buds will not!

Ingredients:

Alfredo Sauce follow the link to my recipe. It’s one of my proudest achievements. It took over 10 years to perfect.

  • 1 container shredded 3 cheese blend (asagio, romano, parm) or just parm if you can’t find that.
  • 16 oz container whipping cream (heavy if you want to go super rich)
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • garlic salt
  • pepper

Everything else:

  • Lasagna
  • 3-4 Chicken breasts
  • Garlic salt
  • Italian herb seasonings
  • Pepper
  • 15 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup pesto sauce, divided
  • 1 egg
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan
  • 4 cups shredded mozzarella or Italian blend cheeses
  • 2 cups mushrooms (optional)
  • 2/3 cup diced sun dried tomatoes (optional)

Time: 2 hours – 1 for prep, 1 for cooking

Servings: 6-8

Instructions

I like to get the fillers done first so I can focus all my attention on the sauce right before the assembling.

Grill and dice chicken. I season the chicken with garlic salt, pepper,  and Italian herb seasonings. Then I use my George Foreman to grill.

 If you choose to use mushrooms – slice finely, add 3 tbsp of pesto, and toss.

In another bowl, add ricotta, egg, 3 tbsp of pesto, garlic, sun dried tomatoes, and parmesan. Toss and set aside.

Make alfredo sauce.

Cook and rinse lasagna according to box directions. 3 layers in a 9×13 pan about 10-12 noodles.

Preheat oven to 350. 

How to assemble:

Add a thin layer of alfredo sauce in the bottom of the pan.

Pour Alfredo sauce over meat and mushrooms.

Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over sauce.

Spread the rest of the ricotta mixture and cover with the remaining chicken and mushrooms.

Pour the rest of the alfredo sauce over the top… and donโ€™t put the last cheese layer on yet! You heard me! You are going to cook the lasagna without the epic top cheese layer first!! Cover it with foil, cut a few vents and bake for 30 minutes.

Take the pan out and remove the foil.

Now put on that epic last layer of mozzerella cheese! I like to add a little garlic salt and parmesan to the top for extra flavor.

Bake for another 20-30 minutes until cheese is browned and bubbly.

Slice into sumptuous squares of awesomeness and enjoy!!
