Notes

Tips to make best Chicken Lasagna:

Lasagna Sheets: I have used no boil lasagna sheets which are thinner than the regular lasagna noodles. They require no boiling but they need additional liquid while baking, If you are using regular lasagna noodles boil them for 4 to 5 minutes and remember you’ll be cooking again.

Chicken: I have used minced chicken that requires less time to cook, you can also get the chicken breast and blend them using food processor.

Spices: You can add spices as per your taste preference.

Cover with aluminium foil: Cover your lasagna with aluminium foil before you pop in oven. If you leave your lasagna uncovered in oven, it will become dry and turns black. Once the lasagna is half cooked, remove the foil and bake till the top is turns to a nice golden colour.
