No Noodle Chicken Lasagna saves you the time needed for cooking and placing the noodles used in a full out lasagna. But you still get to enjoy the creamy deliciousness of the lasagna filling topped with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. And it is delicious! Quick too. No one step that takes way longer than the others. They all flow together swiftly. Takes less than 10 minutes to put together. Baking time is only 25 minutes. You can have it in the oven shortly after arriving home from work and on the table in just over 30 minutes.
Serve with a salad – freshly made while the chicken bakes or poured from a bag and dressed at the last minute. And since there are no carbs from noodles, enjoy that warm, buttery, fragrant slice of garlic bread! Sounds like a winner to me!!
This recipe will also adapt to make ahead and freeze. Put together ricotta cheese mixture and flatten in a quart size zipper freezer bag. Place together with the chicken fillets in gallon sized zipper freezer bag. Add to the gallon bag one small zipper bag with marinara sauce and another with the mozzarella cheese. Freeze.
