How to Make Chicken Alfredo Lasagna

All you need is 20 minutes to prep this alfredo lasagna recipe, then it’s off to the oven to bake. To start, you will need to preheat your oven and prep an 8×8 inch baking pan.

Showing how to make white chicken lasagna.
  1. Get the ricotta layer ready. Whisk the egg and ricotta together until smooth. The egg will help the ricotta set once baked, otherwise, it’ll be too runny.
  2. Make the sauce. Cook the onion in melted butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in garlic and flour for 30 seconds until the roux has formed. Whisk in milk and bring it to a simmer until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan, cream cheese, chicken, spinach, and salt and pepper.
  3. Assemble the lasagna. In the bottom of a greased 8 x 8 baking dish, spread 1/4 cup of the sauce across the bottom. Add 2 or 3 noodles overtop and follow this with 1/4 cup of ricotta mixture, 1/2 cup of sauce, and 2/3 cup of mozzarella. Repeat layers 2 more times and top with the remaining sauce and a sprinkle of mozzarella.
  4. Bake. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 35-45 minutes until the sauce is bubbling. Remove the foil and broil for 2-3 minutes until the cheese is melted and golden brown on top. Allow it to cool for up to 20 minutes before slicing.

Expert Tips

  • Salt the water when cooking the lasagna noodles. It’ll give them extra flavor.
  • Cook noodles only to al dente. They will continue to cook in the oven.
  • Allowing the creamy chicken alfredo lasagna to cool and set once out of the oven will prevent a mess when trying to slice!
  • If you don’t have an 8×8 dish and find your noodles aren’t quite fitting, feel free to rip or cut them as needed so that they do fit.
  • Use enough sauce to cover the lasagna noodles, especially at the edges. If left uncovered with sauce, they will become brown and crispy.
  • Serve with fresh parsley to give it a vibrant finish!
