Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 
  • Pour about 1/4 cup pasta sauce into the bottom of a 9-inch x 9-inch baking dish. Spread out the sauce so it covers the entire bottom of the dish.
  • Layer lasagna noodles over the bottom of the dish so the sauce is covered. Spread half of the chicken over of the noodles. Sprinkle half of the basil and oregano over the chicken. Cover the chicken evenly with 1/3 of the cheese.
  • Spread 3/4 cup of sauce over the cheese, and top with noodles. Repeat layering chicken, herbs, cheese, and sauce.
  • Top with noodles one more time, covering the second layer. Spoon some more pasta sauce over the top noodles and spread to make sure all of the pasta is well coated. Sprinkle the remaining 1/3 of the cheese over the sauce.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Add in the breadcrumbs and stir until the breadcrumbs are evenly moistened.
  • Sprinkle the breadcrumbs evenly over the cheese. (This gives that great crunch layer in a traditional chicken Parmesan.)
  • Cover the baking dish loosely with foil and bake for 25 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and turn your oven to broil on HIGH. Keep a close eye on the dish so it doesn't burn, and cook the top of the lasagna until the breadcrumbs are golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and let sit for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh basil, if desired.

Notes

If you prefer to use regular lasagna noodles, cook them according to package directions and cut to fit your pan.
You can use a rotisserie chicken from the store to cut down on prep time.
You can easily double this recipe and make it in a 9-inch x 13-inch baking dish. The cooking time will remain the same.
