Chicken Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

My friend Addie had an amazing chicken artichoke lasagna that she made for me a long time ago I never got the official recipe (***Update=she gave me the recipe and the official one is at the bottom of this blog) but I watched her make it and kind of know the ingredients.The recipe easily make a 9x13" pan and is super easy to make thanks to my new best friend......


NO BOIL LASAGNA NOODLES....these are the greatest invention I think ever! Just place dry in your lasagna layers and bake! Pre-heat oven to 350F

To make you will need to dice 1 small onion, 1 clove of garlic minced, a few sprigs of rosemary chopped

Thaw 1-2 packages of frozen chopped spinach (depending on how much you like spinach) -when it is thawed squeeze out any excess liquid so you are just left with wrung out spinach, otherwise your lasagna will be soupy

cook 2 whole chicken breasts and chop into bite size pieces (or you can use a rotisserie chicken meat, frozen chicken strips (non-breaded) you will need ~1 1/2 -2 cups of chicken meat
cook the onions over medium heat until translucent ( I usually just do this all in one large stock pot pan because when you all of the other ingredients you will need a larger volume vessel. Add the chopped garlic and rosemary and cook a few more minutes.

Next add 2 cans of chicken broth and a jar of alfrado sauce. Mix in the spinach, a can of chopped artichoke hearts (bite size pieces), chopped chicken and a can of chopped button mushrooms (optional if you like mushrooms) I usually use fresh mushrooms but they can become discolored by the time you are reheating leftovers.

Cook through

Starting with a layer of no boil noodles layer noodles, the chicken/artichoke white sauce and grated motzerella cheese. You can probably get about 4 layers. The noodles cook best if covered with sauce as well so I ended with a layer of motzerella cheese.

Cover with tin foil and bake for about 30-40 minutes, remove tin foil and bake for another 10 minutes or until the top is golden.

This is the recipe she gave me after I made the one above, as you can see I didn't add the feta or olives, also I bet sundried tomatoes would be delicious in this as well.
