2 medium onions finely chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour

Hey Heather, ok it’s 10:15 pm and your yummy chicken lasagna dinner just made me hungry. Thanks for the recipe, my daughter does not like regular lasagna, so now we can all have the same meal when I make lasagna! I will have to make it this week.I think it is so great that I have a fellow blogger in the area! We do have quite a bit in common. I will keep in touch, take care for now!
This lasagna looks so good! Going on my dinner menu list!
Looks delicious! Have a great day!

This looks so yummy! Will have to give it a try.
Yum, the whole dinner looks fantastic! Thanks for linking up.
Never made lasagna with chicken before, looks good. I might mash it up with recipes I found recently for making lasagna in the crock pot, and for replacing the noodle with rice paper!
I would love for you to follow my blog too so that we can share ideas!

Never heard of chicken lasagna either. I love lasagna, but hubs won’t eat regular so I am hopeful he will eat this. It really looks good and your photo is so pretty. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday’s Best.
Hi Heather I’m really enjoying your site. The cheesy lasagna looks really yummy. My husband has been having a problem eating anything with tomato sauce and I’m running out of things to make that he can eat. I’m gonna try this, and if he can’t eat it, well, I guess I’ll have to eat it all ! haha
Hi Barb – you and your hubby will love this lasagna recipe! I don’t like tomato sauce too much myself so I can totally relate! I hope you both like it! 🙂
