Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 375F.

  • 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.
