Creamy White Chicken and Artichoke Lasagna



Well….today’s post was SUPPOSED to be about these HEAVENLY Tres Leches Cupcakes Ilasagna
spotted at SophistiMom.com on Friday and knew I had to make IMMEDIATELY! (It is my
FAVORITE cake…bar none.)

 

But you know…the best laid plans…and all that. I guess this experience will teach me to READ ALL THE WAY THROUGH TO THE END OF THE RECIPE before you start making it. lol.

 

 

 

I made the cupcakes…and had them cooling on the cutting board and turned my attention to the “3 milk” part. Easy enough…add the “3 milks” together and pour over the cupcakes. Oh…wait. Then they are supposed to go in the refrigerator for an hour! Oh. Ok. Well that’s not too bad. I can probably hold the hungry hubster, who was VERY ANXIOUS to try these, off a little longer. Oh…but wait. After an hour in the refrigerator you take them out and pour the REST of the cream mixture over them and then RETURN them to the refrigerator for FOUR HOURS OR PREFERABLY OVERNIGHT! lol. Oh well…hubster took it like a man. Only a few tears were shed


So that left me with an “opportunity” (like how I didn’t say “problem”? I’m learning that this blogging biz definitely requires an almost acrobatic ability to roll with the punches!)

Then it hit me.


CREAMY WHITE CHICKEN ARTICHOKE LASAGNA!

I know it has absolutely NOTHING to do with Tres Leches Cupcakes…but I have noticed over the last couple of days that it has been spreading like WILDFIRE on Pinterest. I saw it online about a week ago (maybe longer) and decided to pin it to one of my boards because I thought it looked DELICIOUS! I mean come on…Creamy White Sauce….Chicken….Artichokes….Lasagna!!! I’m craving it right now just thinking about it…and I am not in the least bit hungry!

Since I pinned it to MY board...it has been repinned over 51,000 times! And that’s just from MY pin. I can’t imagine how many times it has been repinned from the people that repinned it from me! lol.  It gets a little confusing….but suffice it to say….people are IN LOVE with this recipe!

Here are a couple of comments from the Tasty Tidbits website where I found it. (the recipe is originally from KraftRecipes.com.)

Cxxxxx………..Made two of these tonight – one to freeze and one to eat for dinner. REALLY good! My husband and two toddler boys gobbled it up. Thanks for sharing the recipe :)

Stephanie………..This was delish! It will definitely be made again and again!

And comments from my board:

Jeni …… Made this tonight and it was awesome! I added spinach and green onions on top. Yum!

Parthena……..I made this last night and it was amazing!! Great recipe!

sandra……….. This is absolutely delicious! 

There you have it…lots of ENTHUSIASTIC endorsements! 
So what are we waiting for??   Here it is!  The Lasagna that launched 51 thousand PINS! :-)

    I also used no boil noodles (soaked them in hot water for 10 min first) To make sure it was not too dry..added 2 cups of milk instead of 1. This is a sinfully delicious recipe..thanks!

    I just noticed that Myglam linked this on facebook today! I guess that means your blog is a bit more famous! :D

    Made this this week. was it a success? yes. was it good? yeah, i guess. will i make it again? probably not. it was FAR too creamy. Maybe with half the cream cheese it would have been enjoyable, or at least subbing half the cream cheese for ricotta, but i do think it could have used less. Also, this is one of those recipes where good ingredients WILL make a difference. so if you decide to give it a try use good artichoke hearts and good sun dried tomatoes.

    Made this tonight for supper! AWESOME! Even the kids liked it! Thank you for a great recipe. I will make this one often!

    I made this a few months ago, with a few tweaks. I substituted half of the cream cheese for a jar of Alfredo sauce, and added spinach… BEST EVER. Its a favorite here. I probably put in almost double the mozzarella also.

    I made this tonight. It was ok. I left out the artichokes heart. It was just too creamy. What I will do different is use 1 pkg of cream cheese and add ricotta cheese and instead of sun dried tomatoes use diced tomatoes.

  7. Laura says

    I LOVE this recipe!! It has been a huge hit with my entire family. One modification I made was to use roasted red peppers instead of sun dried tomatoes. Delicious!! I think I may use a little extra cheeses, too!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this recipe. My 5yr inhales it for dinner. I’m 4wks away from having my second child and trying to make meals ahead. I’m not much of a cook so I’m asking for help. Should I bake it then freeze or make it, freeze it and then bake (and do I just defrost it in the fridge before baking) Thanks for the help.

    Made this last night for dinner for me and my boyfriend and we LOVED it!!! I even made my mom come over and get a piece for her lunch today and she said it was out of this world! Can’t wait to have the leftovers for dinner tonight. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe. Will be making this again!!
