White Chicken Lasagna

Creating a comforting and delicious meal doesn’t have to be complicated, and that’s where this White Chicken Lasagna recipe shines.

Originating from the heart of Italian cuisine, lasagna has long been a favorite for its layers of pasta, sauce, and cheese. However, this rendition takes a twist by omitting the traditional tomato-based sauce in favor of a creamy white sauce, resulting in a rich and flavorful dish that’s perfect for any occasion.

At first glance, the ingredient list might seem intimidating, but fear not! Each component plays a crucial role in building the layers of flavor that make this dish so irresistible.

Layered between sheets of lasagna noodles, these ingredients come together to create a symphony of flavors and textures that will have your taste buds singing.

Now, as the aroma of bubbling cheese fills your kitchen and anticipation mounts, it’s time to dive into this mouthwatering White Chicken Lasagna.

Whether you’re serving it up for a cozy family dinner or impressing guests at a dinner party, this recipe is sure to be a hit. So preheat your oven, gather your ingredients, and get ready to enjoy a taste of comfort with every bite.

Expert Tip: Allow the lasagna to rest for at least 10 minutes after baking before slicing. This helps the layers set and makes it easier to serve.


Chicken: Boneless chicken breast adds protein and texture to the lasagna, creating a hearty and satisfying filling. Seasoned with salt and pepper, it brings savory flavor to the dish.

Lasagne Sheets: These thin pasta sheets form the layers of the lasagna, providing structure and a delightful chewiness to each bite.

Mushrooms: Fresh mushrooms contribute earthy flavor and a meaty texture to the dish. Sautéed with onions and garlic, they add depth and complexity to the filling.

Olive Oil: Used for sautéing the chicken and vegetables, olive oil adds richness and helps to develop flavor.

Onion: Finely chopped onion adds sweetness and depth of flavor to the filling, enhancing its overall taste.

Garlic: Minced garlic infuses the dish with aromatic flavor, complementing the other ingredients and adding depth to the sauce.

Butter: Butter forms the base of the creamy white sauce, providing richness and a luxurious mouthfeel to the lasagna.

Plain Flour: Flour is used to thicken the sauce, creating a creamy consistency that coats the pasta and filling.

Milk: Milk is the liquid component of the white sauce, adding creaminess and richness to the dish.

Mozzarella Cheese: Mozzarella cheese contributes gooey, melty goodness to the lasagna, creating irresistible cheesy layers.

Parmesan Cheese: Parmesan cheese adds nutty flavor and a crispy, golden crust to the top of the lasagna, enhancing its overall taste and texture.

Salt: Salt is used to season the dish, enhancing the natural flavors of the ingredients and bringing everything together.

Black Pepper: Black pepper adds a subtle kick of heat and depth of flavor to the dish, balancing out the creaminess of the sauce and cheese.

Expert Tip: For added flavor, season each layer of the lasagna with salt and pepper as you assemble it.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve the White Chicken Lasagna hot straight from the oven, allowing it to rest for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
  • Garnish with freshly chopped parsley or basil for a pop of color and freshness.
  • Pair with a crisp green salad dressed with vinaigrette to balance out the richness of the lasagna.
  • Serve alongside crusty bread or garlic bread for sopping up any leftover sauce.

Expert Tip: Don’t overcook the lasagna sheets when boiling them. They should be slightly undercooked as they will continue to cook in the oven.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use pre-cooked chicken for this recipe?

Yes, you can use pre-cooked chicken for convenience. Simply shred or dice the cooked chicken and add it to the filling as directed.

Can I make this lasagna ahead of time?

Absolutely! You can assemble the lasagna up to a day in advance and refrigerate it until ready to bake. Just be sure to add a few extra minutes to the baking time if baking it straight from the fridge.

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • In a pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chicken, season with salt and pepper, and cook until no longer pink. Set aside.
  • In the same pan, add the onions, garlic, and mushrooms. Sauté until onions are translucent and mushrooms are cooked.
  • In a separate pot, melt butter. Add flour and stir until a paste forms. Gradually add milk, stirring continuously to prevent lumps. Cook until sauce thickens.
  • Combine half the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses with the sauce. Stir until cheese is melted and incorporated.
  • Layer the lasagna: Start with a layer of sauce at the bottom of the baking dish, followed by lasagna sheets, then the chicken and mushroom mixture, then another layer of sauce. Repeat these layers.
  • Top the final layer with the remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top is golden and bubbly.
  • Allow lasagna to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
