Easy Chicken Lasagne

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

This is a super easy chicken lasagne recipe that takes next to no time to make, making it a great choice for a busy weeknight dinner.

This chicken lasagne recipe is a fabulous meal for a house with growing children. My teenagers are able to put away quite a lot of food these days, so I need hearty meals that will fill them up and curb their appetites until morning.

This is one of those dinners that can be made after a long day at work, and then while it’s cooking in the oven a simple side of steamed vegetables can be quickly prepared.

If you find yourself with more time on your hands, you could forgo the pre-made carbonara sauce and make your own instead.

I love quick hearty dinners like this one because it helps take the stress and chaos out of my busy nights. If you’re wanting more wholesome, home-cooked meals like this one, be sure to check out my new cookbook!
