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.
