Ingredients

  • 1 box lasagna noodles
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into pieces
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced, divided
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 c. milk
  • 5 c. shredded mozzarella, divided
  • 3/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 15-ounce container ricotta
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 c. thinly sliced basil leaves
  • Balsamic glaze, for drizzling

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375º. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook lasagna noodles until very al dente. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Season chicken with dried oregano and salt and pepper. Cook until golden and no longer pink, 8 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar and half the garlic to pan and stir until combined. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Make sauce: To skillet over medium heat, add butter. Let melt, then add remaining half garlic and cook 1 minute. Add flour and cook until golden, 1 minute more. Add milk and simmer until thick and creamy, 3 minutes, then add 1 cup mozzarella and Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Assemble lasagna: In a small bowl, stir together ricotta and egg and season with salt and pepper.
  5. In a large baking dish, spread a thin layer of sauce. Add a layer of lasagna noodles, slightly overlapping, and top with about a third of ricotta mixture, a third of tomatoes, a third of the basil, a third of the cooked chicken, another layer of sauce, and a third of mozzarella. Repeat with three layers, ending with mozzarella.
  6. Bake until bubbly and golden, 35 minutes. Garnish with more basil and a drizzle of balsamic glaze and serve.
