Key Ingredients

This easy comfort food is simple to make and perfect for weeknight dinners. Here is the list of ingredients needed (be sure to review the recipe card below for the full recipe with measurements). 

Chicken – using chicken breasts, cutlets, or tenders. 

Cheese – I use a blend of freshly shredded mozzarella and colby jack cheese. 

Homemade Alfredo – this chicken alfredo lasagna just isn’t the same without my homemade alfredo sauce. Just butter, fresh garlic, cajun seasoning, heavy cream and parmesan. 

Lasagna sheets – be sure to buy noodles made for boiling and not “oven-ready”

Ricotta – one 15 oz container of ricotta is used, higher quality ricotta makes a big difference!

Cream Cheese – just a half block of softened cream cheese. 

Chopped Spinach – frozen and thawed spinach, squeezed well to remove all excess moisture. 

Cajun Seasoning – a homemade blend of spices to create the perfect cajun seasoning. I usually make this ahead and store in my pantry. Of course you can sub with store-bought.

How to Make Chicken Alfredo Lasagna

Step 1: Prepare your chicken by pounding chicken breasts (if using) to an even 1/4 thickness. Rub chicken with olive oil to coat, season liberally with cajun seasoning. Heat a large skillet to medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil then add in the chicken. Cook about 3-4 minutes undisturbed, flip just once, then turn heat to low and cook an additional 3 minutes. Set chicken aside on a plate under tented foil, dicing once it’s rests for 5-10 minutes.

Step 2: In the same pan (with brown bits on the bottom) over medium-low heat, add in the butter and allow it to melt. Add in the minced garlic and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Slowly whisk in the heavy cream. Allow cream to simmer for about 5 minutes to reduce slightly. Season to taste with about 1 teaspoon cajun seasoning and salt and pepper. Whisk in the parmesan cheese and allow it to melt and thicken, about 3 minutes. Turn off heat while assembling the lasagna rolls.

Step 3: Cook the noodles according to the package instructions to al dente. While noodles cook, prepare the filling. In a large bowl, add cream cheese, ricotta, seasonings, spinach, diced chicken, and half the shredded cheese. Mix well until it comes together as a filling mixture.

Step 4: Drain noodles and separate noodles immediately to prevent from sticking together. Add 1 cup of alfredo sauce into the bottom of a greased 9×13 casserole pan. Lay out noodles onto a clean surface. Use a scoop to add about 1/2 cup of filling onto the end of each  lasagna sheet. Roll them up taut and place them seam-side down, side by side into the baking dish. Repeat with remaining lasagna rolls until pan is filled (about 10-12 rolls).

Step 5: Pour the warm alfredo sauce evenly over the lasagna rolls, spooning any sauce that falls into the crevices back on top of the lasagna rolls. Spread remaining shredded cheese on top the rolls and bake uncovered for 35 minutes, or until edges are crisp and bubbling and top is turning golden brown.

How to Make-Ahead and Freeze:

Unbaked Lasagna:
You can freeze these chicken alfredo lasagna rolls either baked or unbaked. Make sure to assemble the lasagna in a disposable aluminum casserole pan prior or freezing (if unbaked) as ceramic dishes may crack. Cover the pan tightly with cling wrap and foil and freeze for up to 4 months. 

Be sure to thaw the lasagna in the fridge first, then bake according to the recipe instructions (35 minutes in 375 degrees). 

Reheating Frozen Baked Lasagna:
If you are freezing the baked lasagna, I prefer to let the lasagna fully cool and freeze portion sized amounts into vacuum sealed bags or wrapped tightly in cling wrap and then placed into freezer bags. Once ready to eat, you can remove from the plastic and reheat on a plate for 2-3 minutes or until fully heated through.

Bake Half Now, Freeze Other Half:
If you want dinner for now but want to save the leftovers, these disposable tins and these ones are the perfect size for half a lasagna (about 6 rolls) and work perfect to store in the freezer!
