Cook the lasagna noodles and chicken (as deired)
In a 12-inch skillet on the stovetop, add olive oil, broccoli, onion, and garlic.
Saute until onions are translucent, about 10 minutes.
Add to a large mixing bowl with shredded chicken and mix.
To the same skillet you used to cook the broccoli, add the butter and flour to make a roux.
Pour the chicken broth in slowly and stir until thick.
Add the milk 1/2 cup at a time, again stirring until thick.
Add the Italian herbs and Parmesan cheese to the sauce and mix well.
Pour the sauce over the chicken broccoli mixture and stir until well coated.
Spray the 9x13 casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Lay the lasagna noodles on the bottom to fill the casserole dish.
Add 1/3 of the broccoli chicken mixture on top of the noodles, covering as best as possible.
Add 1/3 of the shredded mozzarella cheese on top of the chicken mixture.
Repeat layers, changing direction of the noodles for each layer.
End with shredded mozzarella on top.
Spray a piece of tinfoil with non-stick spray and cover the lasagna completely with the tinfoil.
Bake for 30 minutes covered.
Remove tinfoil and bake an additional 10-15 minutes uncovered until cheese is golden brown and bubbling.
Allow cooling for 10 minutes removed from heat before cutting and serving. This will ensure all the layers hold together.
