Chicken-Broccoli Lasagna

I got this recipe from my grandma and she got it from her sister. It is really yummy. Anything my grandma makes is amazing. She's always been told she should have her own restaurant. She is 92 in two months and doesn't spend as much time in the kitchen as she use to and misses it. I raided her recipe box and found this recipe and it's pretty simple.


(10 oz.) cooked lasagna noodles
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. basil
3 c. chicken broth
1 boiled chicken, cut up
2 c. cottage cheese
1 egg, beaten
1 head broccoli, steamed
1 pkg. grated mozzarella
1 pkg. grated parmesan


Boil noodles, drain. Melt butter in large sauce pan. Blend in flour, salt, basil; stir in chicken broth and cook until mixture thickens and comes to a boil Remove from heat. Add cut up chicken. Mix cottage cheese with egg. Start layering with 1/3 of chicken mixture and then noodles. Next 1/2 cottage cheese, next 1/2 broccoli broken up in pieces. Sprinkle 1/2 of each package of cheese. Start over and end up with 1/3 of the chicken mixture on top. Bake 1 hour at 350*

*Ending up with the sauce on top means you need to go out of order at the end and put the noodles on before the last layer of sauce. I then sprinkled it with a little cheese again.
*I used 3 cups of water and 3 chicken boullion cubes instead of 3 cups chicken broth.

I think its safe to call it white lasagna, too :) My kids will be thrilled with the sound of it.
Going through your ingredients, it does sound healthier, too. I'll definitely try this one and surprise my kids with a new look at their favorite lasagna dish. I can't wait. Thanks for sharing!
