This is a staple in our house! My kids loved it and devoured leftovers the next morning!.

Lasagna, the quintessential Italian classic, varies greatly from one region to another within its country of origin, Italy. Traditionally, it involves layers of pasta, a hearty ragù, and creamy béchamel. However, as lasagna has journeyed across the globe, it has embraced local tastes and ingredients, leading to delightful variations like the Creamy Chicken Lasagna in the United States. This version combines succulent chicken with a luscious creamy sauce, offering a comforting alternative to the classic beef or pork lasagna. It’s an ideal choice for a heartwarming family dinner or when you want to impress guests with a dish that’s both filling and a bit out of the ordinary.

To complement the richness of Creamy Chicken Lasagna, consider serving it with a crisp green salad dressed in a light vinaigrette or a side of steamed vegetables. A side of garlic bread or a crusty baguette is perfect for those wanting to indulge in the full experience, allowing you to savor the creamy sauce to the last drop.
