Lasagna Stuffed Chicken
It’s easy to stretch your budget when you’re cooking with chicken. I find it’s one of the most affordable proteins at the grocery store and that is one big reason why we eat it so often.
And it’s delicious too….
This Lasagna Stuffed Chicken recipe is divine! Think lasagna without the pasta (and all those carbs) and using chicken instead of ground beef. I also use ricotta cheese, but you could easily substitute cottage cheese. Whatever your preference is!
It’s not an elaborate meal to make either. Prep time is about 5 minutes and it bakes for 35 minutes. I love it for busy weeknights when you need to get dinner on the table quickly.

I love simple recipes. The more straightforward, the better, in my books. Chicken.ca has a Quick n’ Easy recipe section that is FULL of meal ideas. We are getting into the busy time of year with back to school and everyone is rushing around. You need these recipes to feed your family and save your sanity.
For example, how delicious does this One-Pot Broccoli, Chicken and Cheese Pasta look? I’m drooling over my keyboard.
