Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; stir cream cheese into hot butter until it begins to melt, about 5 minutes. Season with salt, onion powder, and black pepper. Whisk warm milk gradually into cream cheese until smooth; stir in 1 1/2 cup Swiss cheese. Bring sauce to a simmer, stirring constantly, until cheese has melted and sauce has thickened, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Spread 3/4 cup of cheese sauce into bottom of a 9x9-inch baking dish. Arrange 1/3 of the lasagna noodles over the sauce and spread half the cooked chicken and half the ham over the noodles. Pour 1 cup sauce over chicken and ham. Repeat layers starting with half the remaining lasagna noodles, remaining chicken, remaining ham, and 1 more cup of cheese sauce. Finish by layering remaining lasagna noodles, remaining sauce, 1/2 cup Swiss cheese, and bread crumbs; sprinkle top with Italian seasoning. Cover dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling, about 25 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake until crumbs are browned, about 10 more minutes. Let casserole stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

Got RAVE reviews with this!! My guests left with the recipe and my boyfriend was still raving about it the next day!Just made a few changes. Used Panko Italian flavored break crumbs for the top. And when I cooked the chicken, I seasoned it with garlic powder, salt and pepper. I did add a little more cheese because I love cheese. Cant wait to make this again! Read More

I'm really surprised that this recipe has received such good reviews. I just made it last night, following the recipe exactly as written. And what I got was a very dry and almost taste-less lasagna. :( I think it would be better if more sauce was used (to make it less dry) and if something was added to give it more flavor -- maybe some sauteed onion or something. Unfortunately, this recipe isn't a keeper and I won't be making this again. Read More

Made it for my family, they ate almost all of it in one night (we are only four people!) and when I brought my professional chef neighbor over the next day to try it, there was only a single piece left! (He loved it, by the way, and ate the entire slice extremely quickly) Definitely would reccommend to anyone! Don't be fearful of the lack of ratings, you'll regret it- this recipe is perfect.

I made this tonight for dinner. It was delicious. Followed the recipe exactly. For some reason mine took longer to cook and I ended up turning on the broiler to brown the top. Everyone in my house loved it. Read More

So I tweaked this recipe a little. I thought it could use a vegetable so I added a layer of broccoli over the chicken/ham. It was amazing! My husband says this is his new favorite dinner! Also used half regular butter and half Challenge roasted garlic and herb butter. Most definitely recommend! Read More

Made as written but used non-hydrogenated margarine low fat cream and Swiss cheeses plus whole wheat lasagna noodles to make the recipe healthier. Loose bread crumbs did not appeal to me and if I make this again I will blend with a little margarine to hold them together. All in all I was pleased with how this turned out; I was able to use up a lot of leftovers in my fridge and it was delicious! Read More

I was a little skeptical about this recipe that it might be too rich...but the first thing out of my picky hubbie's mouth was "mmm this is good" and for him that's saying a lot. I have 5 little ultimate critics and they mmmed and ooohed the entire meal too! the sauce was delicious almost onion dip like but perfect for the meal and tasted wonderful when I dipped a piece of chicken in it. I boiled my chicken in salted and peppered water until the water disappeared only light seasoning is needed and I used a 9 x 13 lasagna dish and found in had enough sauce but I wouldn't have complained if I had a little more (though double would've definitely been way too much). I used Ritz crackers on top because I had no bread crumbs didn't bother covering it in the oven and 20 minutes did perfect it was good with the browned cheese. It was pretty set out of the oven but if you use more sauce you might need to let it set a few minutes. Thank you so much for this recipe from my 7 hungry tummies!! I will make this again and again. Goes great with crusty bread and some steamed veggies. Read More

This was fantastic. I didn't use the bread crumbs because I didn't have any. But it is a keeper for sure!!! Read More
