Chicken Parma Lasagne

This fun mash-up of chicken Parmesan and lasagne is an easy and delicious dish to prepare for your weeknight dinner.

For those who love both chicken parmigiana and lasagne, this dish is a merging of both.  The chicken is crumbed and fried as per normal chicken parma.  It is then incorporated into a lasagne style meal, layered between lasagne sheets and surrounded by mozzarella, parmesan and creamy ricotta cheese.  The chicken is sprinkled with herbs to provide a wonderful subtle added flavour.  Garnished with basil and you have a sensational meal.

Although there are a few steps involved in preparing this meal including the layering of the ingredients, it is not a difficult meal to make.  It just takes a little time, first to coat and cook the chicken and then to bake it all lasagne style.

This meal can be kept in the refrigerator for a few days.  Left overs taste great, so they don’t last long in our house.  It also freezes well to be reheated when you don’t have time to prepare a weeknight meal.
