Chicken Lasagna Recipe Video Tutorial:

Learn how to make the best cheesy, saucy Chicken Lasagna! You can cook fresh chicken for this casserole but it’s also a great way to use up leftover chicken (or even leftover turkey from Thanksgiving!).

P.S. If you love creative leftover chicken recipes, don’t miss our juicy Chicken Patties, the easiest Chicken Noodle Soup, and of course Chicken Fried Rice.

Ingredients for White Sauce Chicken Lasagna:

There are 4 main components to a creamy white chicken lasagna: lasagna noodles, a simple bechamel spinach sauce, and a ricotta cheese sauce. Don’t forget the chicken! You can cook your own Instant Pot Chicken or use a store-bought Rotisserie Chicken.

Pro Tip: We always cook an extra couple of noodles in case any of our lasagna noodles break while cooking.

Can I Use Canned Chicken?

We love canned chicken recipes like our easy Chicken Melts and Buffalo Chicken Dip since we always have it on hand in our pantry. Using canned chicken will work for chicken lasagna, just be sure it is well-drained.

How to Assemble Creamy Chicken Lasagna:

The process of assembling a chicken lasagna is simple. We found it’s easiest to spread the thicker ricotta sauce over the noodles and ladling the spinach sauce ensures the chicken layer is moist and juicy. For best results, follow this order.

  1. Spread 1/2 cup spinach sauce on the bottom of a 9×13 casserole
  2. Add 3 noodles, 1/2 ricotta sauce, 1/2 shredded chicken, 1/3 of spinach sauce
  3. Add 3 noodles, 1/2 ricotta cheese, 1/2 shredded chicken, and 1/3 spinach sauce
  4. Remaining 3 noodles, remaining 1/3 sauce, and sprinkle on reserved 1 cup cheese.

Tips for Reheating Chicken Lasagna:

This white sauce lasagna reheats really well and leftovers are just as enjoyable as freshly baked lasagna. Here are some tips for reheating so the lasagna doesn’t dry out.

  • Add Water – Since noodles will naturally soak up some liquid in the lasagna as it sits, it helps to sprinkle on a little bit of water before reheating in the oven or the microwave.
  • Visual Cues – Heat until the edges bubble and the cheese is fully melted on top.
  • 165˚ F Center – You should reach a safe internal temperature of 165˚F on an instant-read thermometer.

How Long Can Leftover Lasagna be Stored?

Chicken lasagna will keep up to 4 days in the refrigerator if you were using freshly cooked chicken. You can also wrap tightly in several layers of plastic wrap and freeze up to 3 months.

This lasagna is a meal in itself. All you need is a simple salad to go with it like our Classic Caesar Salad or fresh Beet Salad with Arugula.

Ingredients

Chicken Lasagna Ingredients:

  • 9 lasagna noodles cooked al dente
  • 4 cups shredded rotisserie chicken or cooked from 2 lbs chicken breast

Spinach Cream Sauce:

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups half and half (or equal parts of heavy cream and milk)
  • 5 oz fresh spinach coarsely chopped
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves minced

Ricotta Cheese Sauce:

  • 15 oz ricotta
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup parsley
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 3 cups mozzarella cheese 12 oz by weight, divided (reserve 1 cup for topping)

Instructions

Cook Noodles & Prep:

  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F. Cook pasta in a large pot of salted water until al dente according to package instructions then drain hot water and add cold water to the pot to stop the cooking process and prevent noodles from sticking together. Shred 4 cups of chicken.

Make the Belachamel (Spinach Sauce):

  1. Place a pot or large saucepan over medium heat, add 1 Tbsp olive oil and saute onions for 3-4 minutes or until softened. Add 4 Tbsp butter and whisk in 1/3 cup flour. Continue whisking 3 minutes or until flour mixture is golden.

  2. Add 2 1/2 cups chicken broth, 1 1/2 cups half and half, 2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp black pepper. Whisk until smooth and simmer 5 minutes until thickened to a light gravy consistency.
  3. Add minced garlic and chopped spinach, and stir to combine then remove from heat.

Make the Ricotta Cheese Sauce:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together: ricotta, egg, 2 cups mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup parmesan, and 1/4 cup parsley.

To Assemble Chicken Lasagna:

  1. Add a little bechamel sauce on the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish, add 3 noodles, Add 1/2 ricotta sauce, 1/2 shredded chicken then ladle 1/3 of spinach sauce over the chicken.
  2. Add 3 noodles, 1/2 ricotta cheese, 1/2 shredded chicken, and 1/3 spinach sauce
  3. Add 3 noodles, remaining 1/3 sauce, and sprinkle on reserved 1 cup cheese.

  4. Cover and Bake: Arrange 10-12 toothpicks over the top to keep the foil from touching the cheese then cover with a large sheet of foil. Bake on the center rack in a preheated oven at 375˚F for 45 minutes then uncover and broil 2-3 minutes to brown the cheese. Rest at least 10 minutes uncovered before slicing.

      Hi Marisa, I always make this with ricotta, but the next best thing might be small curd cottage cheese. I haven’t tried this with cream cheese to advise if that would work. But I worry just mozzarella won’t have the same creamy outcome.

    I followed this recipe to a T. And it’s so bland! I mean with three different kinds of cheese in it you’d think there’d be some flavor in it. And this was even after adding extra garlic and salt and pepper to it along the way.

    A waste of good ingredients.

      Hi J, did you possibly forget the salt or underseason? Undersalting is the #1 cause for a bland dish. Also, if you are using kosher salt, you will need to use more than what is called for since I used fine sea salt which is closer in consistency to table salt.

    A bit too much of a good thing. Was tasty yet way over the top with gooeyness. Just be aware of the heavy factor of the recipe and anticipate that when making side item. Simple salad is all you need…if that!

    Hi Natasha I am going to make this dish tomorrow and substitute broccoli for the spinach. I had a couple questions. Did you say we have to pre-cook the broccoli before we make the sauce with it?? Or can I just put the raw broccoli into the sauce and cook it like you did the spinach. Also I was wondering about your cookware the pot that you boil the lasagna noodles in what brand is that? I’m looking for some cookware. Thanks a lot for your help!

      HI Ladena, I would precook the broccoli until it’s at least crisp-tender, otherwise, it may not soften to your liking in the oven. That is Wolf cookware but I don’t think they make that line of cookware anymore. Check out all of our cookware in our Amazon shop.

    I never wanted to be one of THOSE reviewers, but I made this with chopped up broccoli instead of spinach and it was SO good. But I give all credit to the recipe, which has proven to be wonderfully adaptable. And the Bechamel sauce is so yummy, I think I would eat most anything if this sauce was poured on top!

    I’m a cook for the Salvation Army and I made this for dinner last night. I doubled the recipe and the only change I made was to use part Montery Jack because I ran out of Mozzarella. I had maybe a couple servings left altho with another hour the teenager would have had 3rds. Prep was well laid-out and went smoothly. A dish that will be added to my rotation!
    *Note – it held up very well in the steam table.

    Such a great recipe and worth the time and effort to put it together.
    I believe I prefer chicken lasagna to red sauce lasagna now!

      Maybe your spinach wasn’t dry enough before adding (if you washed it or used frozen) spinach holds alot of moisture!

      Jules, I had the same issue and I’m pretty certain it’s for three reasons. I couldn’t get the spinach sauce to thicken for me, it stayed a little runny. I had to keep adding extra flour just to get it to the runny level I had. I I also added raw mushrooms into each layer, which added water. The final reason and biggest was I didn’t let it sit for the full 10 minutes. (My family was starving and couldn’t wait to eat!) After everyone went back for another helping, it had firmed up and was less watery.

Corn dogs for lunch and lasagna for dinner. They were both delicious!! The entire family had seconds. Thank you Natasha for giving us simple yummy recipes!

    Reply

      January 25, 2021

      Hi Scott, you can make a béchamel up to a day ahead of using it. Keep in the refrigerator. If you lay a sheet of plastic or wax paper directly on the top, there is less chance that skin will form. If it does, whisk vigorously when you reheat the béchamel and the sauce should be as smooth as it was when you made it. Thin out if necessary with milk or stock.

    I LOVED this recipe. I forgot to add the Parmesan cheese to the cheese sauce. I also put it into 2 smaller baking pans instead of one big one as it is just 2 of us eating it. I froze the other one. When doing that I forgot to double up on the noodles, so we just had 2 layers instead of 3. But it still turned out great. Will definitely make this again.

        This lasagna was amazing! It was super easy to make. I would suggest letting the lasagna rest for 30 minutes like mentioned in the video for it to fully set. I used a Pyrex casserole dish, so I couldn’t broil. How can I brown the cheese without using a broiler?

          Hi Ashley, you could continue to bake uncovered for another 10 minutes instead of broiling to give the cheese a chance to change color. Alternatively, you could use a hand-held kitchen torch to brown the cheese.
