Chicken Lasagna

My favorite lasagna recipe IN THE WORLD is my mommas 5 Cheese Lasagna. But it literally takes all day. It is worth it. But when you don’t have a day….

Chicken Alfredo Lasagna Recipe Notes:

This chicken recipe requires a bit of prep but it’s so worth it. Cook your boneless skinless chicken breasts in a skillet (or in your multi cooker to save you a dish) while you make the sauce. That will keep the prep time down to about 20 minutes.

Once the prep is done just cover and cook it all day in your favorite slow cooker. Your home will smell delicious

Substitutions and Variations:

The sauce, spices, herbs and cheese are what makes this recipe so good. Homemade food is all about what you prefer. But here are some suggestions for substitutions if you want to skip a trip to the store.

You can also make this recipe quite a bit easier with bottled sauce and rotisserie chicken. It will still be yummy.

  • Shredded Monterey Jack can be used to replace the Mozzarella cheese.
  • Cottage cheese can be subbed in for the Ricotta
  • Use dried herbs or fresh . (add an extra teaspoon or so if using dried).
  • Rotisserie chicken can replace the raw chicken breasts.
  • Jarred Alfredo can be used in place of the homemade sauce.

Lower Carb Chicken Lasagna:

To make this Crockpot Chicken recipe  MUCH lower in carbs:

  • layer in thinly sliced Zucchini instead of the lasagna noodles. Zucchini tastes really great in lasagna as a noodle substitute.
  • But Zucchini is not a noodle and will not absorb any liquid. So you will need to reduce the liquids in half to avoid a loose messy result.
  • Our white sauce is not low carb. However, Low Carb Yum Blog has a low carb alfredo sauce recipe if you REALLY want those carbs lowered.

NOTE: If  you would rather buy your sauce than make it.

  • Buy a 32 ounce jar of Alfredo sauce to make this recipe with pasta.
  • FOR LOW CARB: Many brands Like Bertolli have low carb alfredo sauces.
  • You will need less sauce for zucchini noodles so a 16 oz. jar will work.
