I’m not much of a lasagna maker. Maybe I’ve just had too much bad lasagna; I’m not a fan. This recipe was pretty tasty though I’m not really sure I’d call it lasagna.. It was a nice casserole.
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 stalks celery, sliced 1/4 inch thick
- 1 yellow onion, diced medium
- 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3 1/2 cups chicken broth
- 3 cups shredded cooked chicken [I harvested meat from a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store]
- 1 1/2 cups roughly chopped marinated artichoke hearts, divided, plus 1 tablespoon marinade
- Salt and pepper
- 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
- 6 no-boil lasagna noodles
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a saucepan, melt butter over medium. Add celery and onion; cook until translucent, 5 minutes. Stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Increase heat and slowly stir in broth. Bring to a boil, stirring, and cook until liquid thickens, 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in chicken and 1/2 cup artichokes; season with salt and pepper. Mix breadcrumbs with marinade; season with salt and pepper.
- Spread 1/2 cup chicken mixture in a 2-quart baking dish. Top with 2 noodles and 1 1/2 cups chicken mixture; repeat. Top with remaining 2 noodles, chicken mixture, and 1 cup artichokes, then scatter breadcrumbs on top. Bake until top is deep golden brown, 30 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes.
