1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a 13 x 9 glass baking dish with nonstick spray.

Stir in thyme. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Pour into a blender (or use a submersion hand blender) and puree until smooth.
3In a separate skillet over medium heat, melt the remaining butter. Saute the onions until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining clove of minced garlic and cook for a minute or so more. Stir in the poblanos and cooked chicken; cook for about 5 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Remove from heat.
4Place 1/3 of the corn sauce in bottom of prepared pan. Place 3 sheets of (uncooked) lasagna noodles across the sauce. Spread half the poblano mixture across the noodles; cover with 1/2 of the cheese. Repeat except put final sauce on before last of the cheese. Cover with foil.
