Buffalo Chicken Lasagna

My family loves anything buffalo. They also love lasagna. This is my “mashup” of the two. A little spicy, easy to make and very yummy.

As with all my recipes I try to make them easy and convenient as possible. For the chicken I bought two packages of bone-in chicken breasts. Season the chicken with salt, pepper and a little blackened seasoning. Bake for 40 minutes at 350°.  To make the recipe even easier you could substitute a rotisserie chicken from the store.

In all of my lasagna recipes I tend to use Bariilla oven ready no boil noodles. If you have not tried these, they are great. They save the step of cooking the noodles and the messy task of spreading your ricotta cheese mixture over slippery noodles. (TIP: spread ricotta cheese mixture on one side of the uncooked noodle. Clean and easy.)

If you have time, simmer the sauce and chicken for 45 minutes before assembling the lasagna, for added flavor. Serve with some fresh broccoli and crescent rolls.www.dadwhats4dinner.com


Notes:

The dish freeze’s great, so double the recipe.

  1. Wow, wow, wow! I could dive into that! My son (I call him the glutton) would eat a piece or two of that and then finish it off in the night! He loves anything buffalo! Great post!

  2. That looks so good! We can’t get buffalo sauce here (or most of your ingredients, actually) but I could make my own! Always looking for alternatives to favourites and I much prefer chicken to mince!

    1. Can you get Frank’s hot sauce or any hot sauce? If so buffalo sauce is 2 parts hot sauce to 1 part melted butter. I’m always trying to change up our favorites. My kids are good sports most of the time. :)))

  3. We are elated you shared this awesome recipe with us at Weekend Potluck but would love it if you’d link back to the party within your post. (It makes you eligible to be featured=) Please come back again soon.
