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!

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!
