This chicken lasagna roll-up casserole is my new fave weeknight meal!

Rolled lasagna noodles stuffed with shredded chicken and cheese is already a win, but when you pour the homemade and rich sauce over the lasagna rolls… OH MY! 😋 It’s such great comfort food.

Hip Tips –

  • This is an easy casserole to make and freeze for busy weeknights.
  • I went to the spicy side when creating this recipe (you can even add a can of green chilies if you like it really hot!), but if you’re not a fan of spice, just omit the peppers and add spinach, mushrooms, or any other veggies you love. So YUM!
  • You can use a rotisserie chicken to cut your time in half. I always make a crock-pot full of chicken at the beginning of the week, and then use it throughout the week to make different meals. It’s definitely a big time-saver on busy weeknights!

The homemade sauce really takes this casserole dish to the next level.

Note that this dish will easily feed a family of 4, but if you have a crowd coming over, you might want to make TWO pans because I’m telling you – this will knock their socks off!

Chicken Lasagna Roll-Ups

yield: 8 SERVINGS

prep time: 20 MINUTES

cook time: 20 MINUTES

total time: 40 MINUTES

This delicious casserole is comfort food at it's best!

Ingredients

  • Cooked lasagna noodles
  • 3 cups shredded chicken
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium diced onion
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 2 jalapeños, diced
  • 2 roma tomatos, diced
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 cups mozzarella cheese

Directions

1

Cook lasagna noodles as directed. As the noodles are cooking, get a 9×13 casserole dish out that will fit 12 lasagna rolls, and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2

In a large saucepan, add butter, onions, peppers, tomatoes, and jalapenos. Saute over medium heat until veggies are tender (about 5 minutes).

3

Add in flour, and whisk for 2 minutes. This will help to get the flour taste out. Slowly add in chicken broth and let simmer for 5 minutes.  Turn heat to low, and add heavy cream whisking for 2 minutes.  Add in 1 cup of mozzarella cheese which will really thicken the sauce, and then remove from heat.

4

Lay out lasagna noodles and spread shredded chicken and cheese over them. Roll up each lasagna noodle and place in a casserole dish. Once all 12 noodles are rolled up and placed in the dish, pour homemade cream sauce over the noodles and top with remaining cheese.

5

Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and serve.
