Creamy cheesy chicken lasagna




  • 1 rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • Lasagna noodles, cooked and drained
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, cubed
  • 2 packets of ranch seasoning mix
  • 3 cans (12 oz each) evaporated milk
  • Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish (optional)


1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).

2. Prepare the Ranch Sauce: In a saucepan, combine the evaporated milk and ranch seasoning packets. Whisk together over medium heat for about 5 minutes until well combined. Add the cubed cream cheese and continue stirring until the mixture comes to a boil and the cream cheese is fully melted and incorporated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

3. Prepare the Chicken: Shred the rotisserie chicken into bite-sized pieces, discarding the skin and bones.

4. Assemble the Lasagna: In a 9×13-inch baking pan, start by layering a small amount of the ranch sauce and chicken mixture on the bottom. Add a layer of cooked lasagna noodles on top of the sauce. Repeat the layers, finishing each layer with a generous sprinkle of both mozzarella and cheddar cheese. Continue layering until you run out of noodles and sauce, ensuring the top layer is cheese.

5. Add the Bacon: Sprinkle the crumbled bacon evenly over the top layer of cheese.

6. Bake the Lasagna: Cover the pan with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Then, remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the lasagna is hot and golden brown around the edges.

7. Rest and Serve: Remove the lasagna from the oven and let it rest for at least 10 minutes before serving. This allows the lasagna to set, making it easier to slice into neat portions.

8. Garnish and Enjoy: Optionally, garnish the lasagna with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and freshness. Slice, serve, and enjoy your delicious, creamy, and cheesy chicken lasagna with the flavors of ranch seasoning and bacon!

This comforting dish is perfect for family gatherings and cold winter nights. Enjoy!
