Chicken, Cheese. More chicken. More cheese. then maybe a little more cheese.
This month at the Diner News, it is all about cheese, and this is a recipe I made last week. I made two, in the typical Diner make ahead style. Boy am I glad I did. The seasonal plague has finally caught up to me. I have the flu. Notwithstanding the fact that I witnessed the young lady who shared the bug with me get her flu shot a month ago. Yep that shot didn't help her and certainly didn't help me. It is great to have some extra dinners handy when you really don't feel up to cooking or even getting out of bed.
Last week, we ate the square dish. I know, lasagna isn't usually baked in a round dish, but you use what you have, right? Besides the end of the crumbles of feta cheese made this casserole the prettiest in the photographs. But this lasagna is so yummy, no one would mind if you served in an old boot.
White Chicken Lasagna
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 cups cottage cheese
4 oz fresh spinach leaves, lightly chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
1 lb roasted chicken deli slices
4 oz Tomato Basil Feta cheese , crumbled
8 oz shredded Mozzarella cheese
Poach chicken breast in water until tender. Cool and shred. Prepare one large casserole dish or two smaller ones with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine cottage cheese, egg, chopped spinach and garlic. Line the base of the dish(es) with a single layer of deli chicken slices. Top those with a thin layer of the cottage cheese mixture. Top that with some shredded chicken. Add a sprinkling of the feta cheese. Add another layer of deli slices. Top that with a sprinkle of Mozzarella. Alternate the remaining ingredients, varying the layers according to how many slices of chicken you have. Reserve a sprinkling of both cheeses for the top of the casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before slicing.
