Chicken Lasagne to die for – Recipe Alert!

If you are on a diet or have high cholesterol, look away now as this is a seriously indulgent lasagne!!  We have this lasagne when some comfort food is in order, but also it works really well for a hot buffet at a special occasion and when you have friends over for a get together. 

Ingredients:

1 large uncooked whole fresh chicken (if your local supermarket has a rotisserie, then much easier to buy a ready cooked one)

1 large pot of double cream 284ml 

1-2  large onions (or however much you like)

Mushrooms (I like quite a few but again, depends how much you like)

Garlic (no more than one clove)

Mixed herbs

X2 small cans of Campbells mushroom condensed soup (small tins)

Fresh washed spinach

2 pots of grated parmesan  (100g x 2) 

Mozzarella cheese (you can use the low fat mozzarella but with this dish, it’s probably not worth it anyway!)

6-8 lasagne sheets (depending on size of your dish I suppose)!! 

 Method:

 Roast the chicken until cooked through & then shred all the breast meat and underneath until you have got all the meat off & put in a separate dish (if you buy a ready cooked one, just do the shredding part!!!)

Chop the onions and mushrooms while chicken is cooking.

Cook the onions, mushrooms, garlic and fresh herbs until soft in olive oil & put to one side.

Then put the double cream into a large saucepan, then add 1 pot of the parmesan and the 2 cans of mushroom soup.  Keep stirring on a low heat until the mixture is smooth and runny and its all mixed in.

Now time to make the layers.

How to layer the lasagne:

 Layer 1:

Thin layer of onion/mushroom mix

Layer of fresh chicken

Spinach leaves

Creamy sauce

3 lasagne sheets (1 layer but you will need 3 which will be side by side)

Layer 2:

Layer of onion/mushroom mix

Layer of fresh chicken

Spinach leaves

Creamy sauce

3 lasagne sheets

 Then on top of last layer of lasagne, put rest of onion, then rest of chicken, then only a few spinach leaves and finish with the remainder of the sauce until everything is covered with sauce.  

Then lastly, sprinkle entire top with the 2nd pot of parmesan and slice mozzarella and randomly place on top.

Cook for about 45 mins or until top goes brown.
