Well, my first meal planning week has had some bumps. Due to poor planning and random things popping up, I had to move around some of the days. Not a big deal.

Last night I made these delicious chicken alfredo lasagn roll ups. I found the original recipe on Facebook from All Recipes, but tweaked it like I’m known to do.

 Due to the fact I thought I had all the ingredients, but did not… it took me about two hours to make this meal. You read that correctly. Two. Hours. I had to run to the store, that had just changed its layout, to pick up one of the ingredients. It also didn’t help my time that my chicken wasn’t boneless or skinless, but I got it out of my freezer so that’s okay, but I did save a bit by not making my own alfredo sauce like I normally do. Small victories, right?

Anyways, it shouldn’t take nearly as long, only about an hour to prepare this meal.

Here are the ingredients:

  • 1 (12oz) can evaporated milk
  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breast or 3 medium sized
  • 1 package (1oz) ranch mix
  • 1 box lasagna noodles
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, plus desired amount for top
  • 1/4 cup, cooked crumbled bacon, or to taste (optional)
  • Dried oregano, to taste
  • Garlic powder, to taste
  • 1 jar (22oz) of alfredo sauce

This will make about 12 roll-ups, with enough chicken, sauce, etc. for the top.

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350* F
  2. Combine evaporated milk, chicken, and ranch mix in a skillet over medium heat; cook until chicken is no longer pink in the middle (10-15 minutes). Shred the chicken
  3. Bring a large pot of slightly salted water to boil. Cook noodles for 8 minutes or until tender yet firm. Drain and dry with paper towel
  4. Spread alfredo sauce over each Noodle; top with shredded chicken
  5. In a small bowl, combine cheese, bacon, oregano, and garlic powder; sprinkle over chicken layer. Roll noodle up and place in an 8-inch deep baking dish
  6. Take remainder of cheese mixture and sprinkle over top to desired consistency
  7. Bake in oven until cheese is melted and bubbly (25-30 minutes)

When I go to make this meal again, I may purchase a rotisserie chicken to save time. 🙂
