FRIDAY NIGHT FOOD – LEFT-OVER CHICKEN LASAGNE

FinishedChickenLasagne

A great way to use up left-over chicken

I like to make this with my little one to use up leftover BBQ chicken. We usually buy one for dinner when they’re on special on a busy work night, then I make this lasagne the next day with the leftovers and use the carcass to make stock. The lasagne freezes really well too — I often take a couple of pieces into my work freezer for those days I forget to take my lunch to work, that way I never need to buy it.  Even my fussy toddler thinks it is delicious. I hope you all like it!

Ingredients:
1/2 leftover BBQ chicken, meat shredded
1 large carrot
1 celery stalk (you can substitute other vegetables you have on hand e.g. onions, capsicum, mushrooms)
1 x 375ml can creamed corn
1 x 375 ml can cream of chicken soup
1 cup grated cheese
A packet of lasagne sheets

Method:
1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius

2. Saute vegetables on the stove over medium heat until softened (2 to 3 minutes)
