The perfect comfort food! | The Cookie RookieIt’s no secret that I have a love affair with all things cheesy.  Including my husband.  He’s not quite cheesy enough for me…but sometimes he does giggle at the stupidest commercials, over and over again, and I love that.  But apart from him, I just love love love cheese.  It’s not good for any type of diet, but it sure is delicious.  Most recipes should be cheesy.  It’s just a fact. (Be sure to check out our other favorite Easy Caprese Recipe!)

Where there’s cheese, there should be basil.  That’s another fact.  Fresh basil for sure.  Oh and tomatoes.  It doesn’t matter what type of tomatoes, but they always go well with cheese and basil.  Sun-dried tomatoes, roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes…yep.  Any will work.  Like I said, it’s just a fact.

(to her dismay, she was only given dog food)

Ingredients

  • 3 cups cooked and shredded chicken I used rotisserie chicken
  • 1 can 14 oz. artichoke hearts, drained, chopped
  • 1 pkg. 8 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes chopped and drained
  • 1-1/2 pkg. low fat cream cheese
  • 1 cup 1/2 and 1/2
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil chopped
  • 12 lasagna noodles cooked
  • 12 slices whole milk mozzarella

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. In a large bowl, combine chicken, artichokes, 1 cup mozzarella, grated parmesan, 1/2 the basil and tomatoes. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, 1/2 and 1/2, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste until well combined. Using a spoon, stir in half the basil. Set half of the cream cheese mixture aside and stir the remaining half in with the chicken mixture.
  4. Take half of the cream cheese mixture (half of the part without the chicken) and spread it into a 9x13 baking dish, covering the bottom. Lay 3 noodles on top and then top with 1/3 of the chicken mixture. Repeat the noodles and chicken mixture two more times, ending with a noodle layer.
  5. Top with the last half of the cream cheese mixture.
  6. Place the whole milk mozzarella slices on top in rows of three, like shown.
  7. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella over everything, and then top with more basil if desired.
  8. Bake 25 min. or until heated through.

This was SO delicious. I used kraft italiano mixed cheese instead of plain mozzarella cheese and didnt have any artichokes so I left that out. My friend also loved it; definitely a recipe I'd make again!!
Carissa
I need this. Like NOW!! This looks soo good. I do have 2 questions: 1) I have sun dried tomatoes in oil;will that be ok to use as long as I drain them really well? 2) How much cream cheese? Just like an 9 oz package? And 1 and a half of those? This looks amazing and I don't want to screw it up! And I agree, cheese makes everything better!
    Becky Hardin
    Hey Carissa, I hope you love the recipe!! Yes you can use the sun dried tomatoes in the oil FOR SURE!!! Just drain them like you said, they'll be delicious :) And you're right on the cream cheese, exactly! Thanks for stopping by, let me know how you like it!
      Carissa
      LOVED the recipe! My Mom said it was the best lasagna she has ever had! A keeper for sure! I didn't put in the artichoke hearts since I don't like them and added more cheese, cause who doesn't like cheese?? And I drained and rinsed the tomatoes so they wouldn't be really oily and cut them in half and they were perfect!! Thanks again for this awesome recipe!!!
        Becky Hardin
        yay!!! So glad to hear that!! More cheese is my mantra :) Thanks for letting me know that you liked it!!
Betsy
Do you think this would freeze well, I'm stocking up my freezer this week!
    Becky Hardin
    I've never frozen it, but I do think it would freeze well! Other lasagnas I have made have done really well frozen. If you try it, let me know! I definitely think it would be convenient to freeze this in the future!
      Alora
      I'm adapting it to use as a freezer meal recipe. When I saw it I knew I had to have it on my meal prep list.

Can I replace articokes with something else?
    Becky Hardin
    You could leave them out all-together or replace them with whatever veggies you like. Hope you love the recipe!
    Becky Hardin
    Spinach or mushrooms would be good!
Sarah
I made this tonight. So good! Even my picky son liked it (though he picked around the artichokes - but hey, he ate it!). Definitely adding this to the recipe file.
    Becky Hardin
    I'm so glad!! And yeah, I hated artichokes as a kid too :) Thanks for stopping by and letting me know, made my day!
