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!

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


  • 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



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.


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


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.


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.


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