Contest-Winning Chicken Lasagna

“A friend served this to us one night and I just had to try it at home," recalls Janelle Rutrough of Callaway, Virginia. "It’s quick, easy and so delicious! I love to serve it to guests with a Caesar salad and warm rolls. Also, it can be frozen and saved for a busy weeknight.”

    We added pepper and thawed frozen spinach to the cottage cheese layer. Next time we will also add cooked shredded carrots. Love adding vegetables every time we can! Also added shredded mozzarella with the bread crumbs like another reviewer suggested. Yummy.

    My husband & I both agreed that this recipe is very bland and "needed something". I won't be making this again.

    The sauce is pretty thin on this lasagna and I wish it had more layers. Overall pretty good and I will make it again but I will probably tweek it a little when I do.

    By far my favorite recipe to use for company or taking a meal to someone. Everyone loves it, even kids! I use bread crumbs instead of stuffing to keep down on the salt.

    Instead of stuffing mix, use Panko crumbs mixed with shredded mozzarella cheese. Extra crunch with a cheesy taste.
