You’re going to need a really deep baking dish to make this!! This extra deep lasagna has 5 layers of noodles (I used no-bake), with two layers of breaded chicken cutlets (yeah baby!) in between all that saucy, cheesy goodness! Adding chicken breast adds protein to this dish, so delicious!

I partnered with Pyrex to create this mouthwatering dish in their new line of baking dishes Pyrex Deep which are up to 50% deeper which means there’s room for more layers!

On Sundays, I love having my family over for dinner. Usually I get together with my Mom, brother, sister in law and my nieces, sometimes my aunt, uncle and cousins come too. I made this dish last night, and my family loved it! I assembled everything ahead and popped it in the oven when they came, which gave me more time to spend with them instead of in the kitchen. Portions here are very generous! I served this with a big tossed salad and dinner was done.

How To Make Chicken Parmesan Lasagna

Tips and Variations

This tastes great for leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day. If you wish to bake and freeze, this would make a great freezer meal. Simply cut it into portions once it cools and freeze them in individual freezer-friendly containers to reheat for lunch or dinner.

To Make Ahead and Refrigerate: May be prepped 24 hours in advance before baking. Prepare and refrigerate, tightly wrapping with foil. To bake, cover with foil and bake in a 400F preheated oven in the center rack 50 to 60 minutes. Uncover, add the remaining cup of mozzarella and bake until melted, 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let it rest 15 minutes before serving.

To Freeze and Serve: Prepare unbaked lasagna in a freezer to oven safe Pyrex Deep baking dish, cover tightly with foil and freeze for up to 3 months. Remove from the freezer and let it thaw in the refrigerator 24 hours before baking. To bake, cover with foil and bake in a 400F preheated oven in the center rack 50 to 60 minutes. Uncover, add the remaining cup of mozzarella and bake until melted, 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let it rest 15 minutes before serving.

If you wish to simplify this recipe, you can use the breast meat of a rotisserie chicken and shred instead of breading the chicken. It won’t be as high, but it will still be tasty.

I whipped up my homemade marinara sauce to make this, but you can also use your favorite jarred sauce, you will need two jars.

Ingredients

For the chicken:

  • 4 (32 ounces total) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced in half lengthwise to make 8
  • 3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs, I used whole wheat, you can also use GF crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • olive oil spray

For the lasagna:

  • 15 ounce container part-skim ricotta cheese, I like Polly-o (almost 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped basil, plus more for garnish
  • 4 3/4 cups homemade or jarred marinara sauce, from about 2
  • 9 ounce box no-boil lasagna noodles, I used Barilla
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 3 cups part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a large baking sheet lightly with spray.
  • Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in a bowl. Beat the egg in another bowl.
  • Dip the chicken into the eggs, then into the breadcrumb mixture. Discard the remaining crumbs.
  • Place the chicken on the prepared baking sheet, lightly spray the top with oil and bake in the oven for 25 minutes, do not turn. When done, remove from the oven and reduce oven temp to 400F.
  • Meanwhile, combine the ricotta, parmesan cheese, and basil in a medium bowl.
  • In a 9 x 13 x 3-inch Pyrex Deep baking dish, ladle 3/4 cup of marinara on the bottom of the dish.
  • Arrange 3 lasagna noodles across the dish (they will expand as they cook), top with 3/4 cup sauce, 4 pieces of chicken, 1/4 of the ricotta cheese mixture, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, 3/4 cup spinach.
  • Repeat the 2nd layer, skipping the chicken.
  • Repeat the 3rd layer with the chicken, and the 4th layer without the chicken.
  • For the 5th layer, spread the last 3 sheets of pasta noodles with the remaining 1 1/2 cups of marinara sauce on top.
  • Cover with foil and bake in a 400F preheated oven in the center rack 50 minutes.
  • Uncover, add the remaining cup of mozzarella and bake until melted, 5 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let it rest 15 minutes before serving.

  1. This was pretty good. I only cooked the chicken for 15 min, but still felt the end product was a little dry, can’t imagine what a 25min cooked chicken would have tasted like.  That being said, this could be due to me halving the recipe? ( there’s only 2 of us). I layered it – sauce/noodle/sauce, chicken/cheese/spinach, sauce/noodle/sauce, cheese/spinach, sauce/noodle/sauce, mozzarella cheese.  This was the first time using oven ready lasagna noodles – pleasantly surprised and will be using them again!  To half the recipe, I used one jar of Barilla marinara sauce.  Will make again – really easy recipe with the Barilla lasagna noodles 

  2. This is a family favorite! I had to modify it tonight when I came back from the store and realized I forgot the lasagna noodles. Luckily I had rotini, so I followed the same basic sequence, except swapping a handful of dried rotini for the lasagna noodles for each layer. It turned out amazing, more like a baked pasta dish. 

  3. I’ve made this twice in 2 weeks and it is delicious! A new family favorite. ❤️

  4. For us 25 minutes was too long to cook the chicken.  I don’t love the big pieces of chicken in the lasagna. It makes it hard to cut and eat.  I’d prefer if the chicken was cut into pieces.

  5. first time making lasagna myself and it turned out delicious! great recipe.

  6. Have tried this twice and I think the layering instructions are not clear because I run out of ingredients. Each time I have run out of ricotta and completely emptied two jars of sauce. What am I doing wrong?

  7. I really have to be in the mood for lasagna because it’s such a rich dish and I’m only cooking for 2. I made this over the weekend and it blew me away. The addition of the chicken layers is brilliant. This recipe is also super easy too. It was nice to make such a lovely meal without spending the whole day in the kitchen.

  8. Hi Gina! Love every recipe on this site! Question – I don’t have a deep pyrex so I am thinking I will use a bigger pan but layers will be lower. Shall I bake shorter amount of time?

  9. Another fabulous recipe that is perfect for serving for company because it can all be prepped ahead of time and cooking when they arrive. Everyone loved it! I paired it with a salad and served your Triple Berry Crisp for dessert. Thanks Gina!

  10. Hi Gina… Can you re-check the points on this recipe?, Because how does the purple plan have more points than the blue plan shouldn’t they be the same as far as the chicken being zero,  I think everything else would be the same, thanks for your time

  11. Could u substitute fat free ricotta or low fat ricotta and either low fat or fat free Parmesan cheeses to reduce calorie and fat counts ?

  12. I am excited to try this. I bought some brand called “American” spaghetti sauce. It’s supposed to be good. Has anyone done the chicken in the air fryer?  I’m thinking it won’t dry out that way. 

    • I know your comment was posted in July but yes I do the breaded chicken in the air fryer or in the oven as Gina states in her recipe and it is not dry at all, this recipe is absolutely delicious

  13. I have been making Skinnytaste recipes for a while now and they are always so great and tasty. I made this lasagna last night and it was a HUGE hit! Even people who don’t normally like pasta were raving about it. The recipe is amazing. I used Rao’s jarred marinara sauce. This will be my new go-to lasagna recipe, I’ve added it to my regular rotation.

  14. This was an amazing recipe!  Definitely company worthy! I used frozen spinach because that’s what I had on hand during the quarantine!  Family raved about this. Five stars for sure!!!!

  15. Does essentially cooking the chicken twice not dry it out? Excited to try this one!
