Looks great! With my big family, I cook a lot of chicken and am always looking for recipes that will feed a crowd! I will have to try this. It is also a good way to sneak those green leafy veggies into the kids! Have a wonderful weekend!

First of all, your header with the lovely flowers and coleus baskets is beautiful. The chicken cheese lasagna sounds scrumptious. I don't usually precook my lasagna noodles, and I wonder if that would work out in this recipe?

Delicious and beautiful! What a combination! Great job! I'm not good at making lasagna, so I've made it maybe 7 times, but I like how your look and I can just imagine how it tastes. Yum!
