Creamy White Cheesy Chicken Lasagna

Valeree Dunbar


what makes this lasagna different is that I add a can of cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup to the recipe and it is to die for. I also discovered that Campbell's makes a combination cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soup in one can so you can have both flavors in this dish.
