This Chicken Lasagna Recipe is a perfect recipe loaded with mushrooms and cheese for a delicious protein-packed all in one meal.
I love serving up fresh crusty bread with our homemade Herbed Dipping Oil as a starter course when I make this recipe.
Chicken Lasagna Recipe
Lasagna is usually made with beef, but I prefer it with ground chicken thighs and mushrooms. If you don’t like mushrooms, they can easily be omitted from this recipe. I used chicken thighs instead of chicken breast in this chicken lasagna recipe because chicken thighs aren’t as dry. It might just be me, but I feel that using chicken instead of beef makes the dish a little lighter. This recipe has been a family favorite for years. Hopefully, it can become a favorite in your family as well 🙂
