Lasagna Stuffed Chicken is all the flavors you love from lasagna stuffed inside a chicken breast and it’s smothered in cheesy, saucy goodness. What’s not to love?

Lasagna stuffed chicken breasts sliced in half, stacked on top of each other smothered in cheese and toppings.

The idea for this recipe popped in my head while on a girl’s trip to San Francisco with my friends from The Recipe Critic and Diethood. I rushed to make it as soon as I got home because I knew this would be a recipe to drool over. And it did not disappoint! This is the kind of chicken dish I could eat night after night after night.

I’ve written this recipe to make two chicken breasts. Since chicken breasts nowadays are pretty big, this may serve four people, depending on the appetite. But this recipe can also be easily doubled or tripled for families with more people and bigger appetites. I’m talking to the moms of teenagers here 🙂

You can keep this dish low carb by serving it up with a salad, or serve it over some buttered noodles for a cheesy, saucy, carb overload. I won’t judge you either way. It’s so easy and so good, it makes the perfect weeknight dinner. And oh that cheese! I’m a huge fan.

I found this to be excellent! And it is even keto friendly. I had leftover filling so I’m probably goo f to add it to some pasta for another meal. Oh and FYI I accidentally used 3 tablespoons of Italian seasoning instead of teaspoons and it was great. If made again, I wouldn’t change it.

I always add spinach and a pinch of nutmeg to my ricotta/mozz mixture. I may try this with that addition.

I really liked this recipe, I thought it was a bit heavy on the Italian seasoning for my taste, next time think I’ll halve it.

made this tonight for my husband and was a hit. So we will have again


Made this on a cold, winter’s night and boy did it not disappoint. It was warm, cheesy, flavourful and comforting. Didn’t change a thing (except doubled the recipe for 4 chicken breasts). Will make this again!

I have never tried anything like this before, because I have always thought it would be too complicated. Boy was I wrong. It turned out perfect. I loved it. Even my children loved it, and they hardly ever love anything. I will definitely be preparing this entree again soon.

Best and easiest chicken recipe I’ve ever made! I actually received compliments on how good this was from the two guys I live with and cook for – that never happens – lol. Thank you so much for sharing. I will be making this dish on a regular basis for sure.


Chicken thighs as a replacement for breasts? I find they have more flavor so prefer to use them.
