Chicken Lasagna

I got this great recipe from my good friend Barb. We share many of the same interests and are always sharing recipes. I have made this for volleyball covered dish dinners and I made it for all of my family at the beach last year. It is VERY good and easy! ENJOY!

Chicken Lasagna


1/2 cup Finely chopped onion
1/4 cup Finely chopped green pepper
2 Tbls Butter
1 can Cream of Chicken soup
½ can Chicken broth
2/3 cup Milk
8 oz Barilla No Cook Noodles
16 oz Small curd cottage cheese
8 oz Cream cheese-cubed
2 ½ cups Cooked-cubed chicken
3 cups Shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup Grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In large skillet sauté onion and green pepper in butter until tender. Stir in soup,milk and chicken broth. Lightly spray bottom of 9 x 13 pan and spread enough sauce to lightly cover bottom. Layer 1/3 of noodles, cottage cheese, cream cheese cubes, chicken, sauce, and cheddar cheese in order. Repeat 2 more times. Sprinkle top with Parmesan cheese. Bake 50 to 60 minutes and let sit for 5 min. before eating.

**I boiled my chicken breasts and used the liquid leftover from this as the source for my chicken broth. AND the best idea for a speedy meal is to use the already cooked, cup chicken from Costco. It comes in these 2 pouches connected in the sections with the cheeses, etc. This saves a ton of time and works great!
