  • 2 cups Progresso ® Chicken Broth
  • 1-1/2 cups milk

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

How to make Chicken Cheese Lasagna:

  • In a large saucepan, saute onion and garlic in butter until tender. Stir in flour and salt until blended; cook until bubbly. Gradually stir in broth and milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Stir in 2 cups mozzarella, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, basil, oregano and pepper; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, parsley and remaining mozzarella; set aside. Spread one-quarter of the cheese sauce into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish; cover with one-third of the noodles. Top with half of ricotta mixture, half of spinach and half of chicken.
  • Cover with one-quarter of cheese sauce and one-third of noodles. Repeat layers of ricotta mixture, spinach, chicken and one-quarter cheese sauce. Cover with remaining noodles and cheese sauce.
  • Sprinkle remaining Parmesan cheese over all. Bake at 350°, uncovered, for 35-40 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes. Yield: 12 servings.
