Ingredients

9
lasagne noodles
1/2 c
butter
1
whole onion chopped
1 Tbsp
minced garlic
1/2 c
flour
1 tsp
salt
2 c
chicken broth
1 1/2 c
milk
4 c
shredded mozerella cheese ( divided )
1 1/4 c
parmesan cheese ( divided )
1 tsp
basil
1 tsp
oregano
1/2 tsp
black pepper
2 c
ricotta or cottage cheese
3 c
cooked shredded chicken
1
10 oz package of frozen spinach thawed and drained
1 Tbsp
fresh chopped parsley

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large pot boil 2 to 3 pounds of chicken, ( doesn't really matter if its breast or thighs ) for about an hour. Drain the water and let the chicken cool. ( I usually put it in the freezer for 15 minutes. Shred the chicken in a bowl and set aside.
2
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Clean the same large pot out and bring lightly salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna noodles in boiling water for about 10 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water and set aside.
3
Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic in the butter until tender stirring constantly. Stir in flour and salt and simmer until bubbly.
4
Mix in the broth and the milk and boil stirring constantly for 1 minute. Stir in 2 cups of the mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup of the parmesan cheese. Season with basil and oregano and the black pepper. Remove from heat and set aside.
5
Spread 1/3 of the sauce mixture on the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish. Layer with 1/3 of the noodles (3 ) and all of the chicken and ricotta cheese. Arrange 1/3 of the noodles (3) over the chicken and layer with 1/4 of the sauce mixture, the spinach and the remaining 2 cups of mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan.
6
Arrange remaining noodles over cheese and spread remaining sauce evenly over noodles. Sprinkle with parsley and additional 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese.
7
Bake for 45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before you serve it.
