Making Skillet Chicken Lasagna with Genuinely Julie
We are always thrilled to have our favorite food blogger, Genuinely Julie, share a tasty and healthy recipe with us. This month: an easy and delicious Skillet Chicken Lasagna*!
Skillet Chicken Lasagna
- 1 pound ground chicken
- 3 cups fresh baby spinach
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ cup onion, diced
- ½ cup mushrooms, diced
- 2 cups pasta sauce
- 1 cup water
- 7 lasagna sheets, broken into 2" pieces, or noodles
- ¾ cup ricotta cheese
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
- 1-2 tbsp. Italian spice blend
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Add olive oil to a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add garlic, onion, mushrooms, and spice blend to taste. Sautee for 4 to 5 minutes or until fragrant. Add in ground chicken, salt and pepper. Continue to cook for about 8 minutes.
- Add baby spinach, cooking for about 2 minutes until wilted. Add broken noodles, pasta sauce, and 1 cup water (plus more if sauce is too thick). Stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer on medium, stirring frequently for 10 to 15 minutes or until noodles are cooked.
- Remove from heat. Stir in half of the mozzarella until melted (about 2 minutes). Transfer contents of skillet into a casserole dish, top with remaining mozzarella and ricotta cheese. Garnish with fresh pepper and basil. Place in the oven under broil for about 5 minutes or until cheese is slightly browned.
- In a hurry? The final step in the oven can be skipped by placing the cheeses on the lasagna within the skillet.
