Caprese Chicken Lasagna
If you guys didn’t know by now, I’ll fill you in: I’m obsessed with Caprese anything.
A classic Caprese salad is made up of mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil, and it’s one of the best things in the world. Now I use that flavor combination in so many different recipes, and it never disappoints!
Where there’s cheese, there should be basil, and, preferably, some tomatoes. It doesn’t matter what type of tomatoes, but they always go well with cheese and fresh basil. Sun-dried tomatoes, roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes…Any tomato will work. This Caprese Chicken Lasagna has it all and it’s so delicious!

The more I cook, the more I realize how simple a lot of recipes are once you organize everything into steps and just take it one step at a time. This white lasagna recipe with cream cheese is easy to follow, so make it for yourself and see how amazing it is!
Step by Step:
- Combine chicken, artichokes, basil, mozzarella, parmesan, & tomatoes in a bowl and set aside
- In another bowl, use an electric mixer to beat cream cheese, half and half, garlic, and salt & pepper. Then use a spoon to stir in the basil.
- Set aside half of the cream cheese mix, and mix the other half in with the chicken mixture from step 1
- Take half of the cream cheese mixture that you set aside and spread it over the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish
- Lay 3 lasagna noodles on the cream cheese mixture, then layer on 1/3 of the chicken mixture
- Repeat the noodle/chicken layering 2 more times, then top with a final layer of noodles
- Spread the remaining cream cheese mixture on top, then lay mozzarella slices on top
- Sprinkle shredded mozzarella over the whole lasagna, and sprinkle with basil if desired
- Bake 25 minutes at 350°F

A recipe like this is so good because of the amazing ingredients! I love this white chicken lasagna recipe because it’s filled with my favorite things.
- Shredded Chicken
- Artichoke Hearts
- Mozzarella (shredded and whole slices)
- Grated Parmesan Cheese
- Sun-dried Tomatoes
- Cream Cheese
- Half and Half
- Lasagna Noodles
All of these ingredients combine to make the creamiest, cheesiest, most delicious lasagna recipe ever!
- You can store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to a few days or the freezer for up to 3 months. Simply reheat in the oven.
- Using a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken in this recipe makes it that much easier. But if you want to start with raw chicken, just be sure to cook it fully and then shred it up.
- Cream cheese is the base of the cheesy layer, and it adds the perfect flavor. Plus it’s SO creamy, which is what makes this white lasagna so irresistible.
- If you want to prepare this as a freezer meal, prepare and assemble the lasagna as instructed, but freeze it before cooking. The cheesy, creamy layers and noodles will hold up better this way.
