Clarion County Recipe of the Day: Chicken & Artichoke Lasagna
This recipe not only tastes incredible, but it’s also hearty and convenient, too!
2 cans (14 ounces each) of water-packed artichoke hearts, drained and finely chopped
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
3 garlic cloves, minced, divided
1 pound ground chicken
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 cup finely chopped onion
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup white wine
1 cup half-and-half cream
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 large egg
1-1/2 cups 2% cottage cheese
9 no-cook lasagna noodles
2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Optional: Prepared pesto and additional basil.
-Fold two 18-inch square pieces of foil into thirds. Crisscross strips and place strips on the bottom and up sides of a 6-qt. slow cooker. Coat strips with cooking spray. Combine artichoke hearts, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, basil, and 2 garlic cloves.
-In a large skillet, crumble chicken over medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink; drain. Set chicken aside. Add oil and onion; cook and stir just until tender, 6-8 minutes. Add salt, pepper, and remaining garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in wine. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half, 4-5 minutes. Stir in cream, cream cheese, and Monterey Jack cheese. Return chicken to pan. In a bowl, combine egg, cottage cheese, and the remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan.
-Spread 3/4 cup chicken mixture into slow cooker. Layer with 3 noodles (breaking noodles as necessary to fit), 3/4 cup chicken mixture, 1/2 cup cottage cheese mixture, 1 cup artichoke mixture, and 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers twice; top with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Cook, covered, on low until noodles are tender, 3-4 hours. Remove the slow cooker insert and let stand for 30 minutes. If desired, serve with pesto and sprinkle with additional basil.
