WWEW: Creamy White Chicken and Artichoke Lasagna

I've spent the past few days searching through recipes for today. I saw the picture for this recipe and KNEW it was the one I wanted to make. Creamy White Chicken and Artichoke Lasagna! Doesn't that just make your mouth water? When I told Kenzie what I was making for today, she nonchalantly asked if there would be leftovers. Lol. Instead, I just invited her and Adam over to enjoy it with us! :)

This is a great dish to make for a weeknight meal - although I will say it takes a bit of prep work. To make it easier it would be a good idea to make ahead - or even make ahead and freeze. I hope you give it a try - and if you do, let us know what you think! 
Have a wonderful Wednesday,

  1. This lasagna is to die for, it's like a combination of dip (with the spinach and artichoke) and a tangy Alfredo with the tomatoes, cheese and milk! The chicken takes to to a whole different level of yummines! Thank you for sharing at the Fluster Buster Party! have a fantastic week, Lizy, your co host for today!

  2. Hey Orchard Girls, I'm your newest follower on GFC from the Wednesday hop. Kayla just a question, not really fond of artichoke. Is there something I can substitute it with?

    1. Thank you so much for following along, we appreciate it! You could definitely substitute it. If you like spinach you could always just put additional spinach in it, or more chicken. It would taste just as good, i'm sure :) Let me know if you try it out.
