This is a layered chicken casserole with chicken being in the place of pasta. You need to make sure you have large chicken breasts and slice them with a very sharp knife into very thin slices. You can pound them if necessary to get them as thin as possible. I didn't do this and wish I had as once they cook they fatten up a bit, which was still okay. This was so yummy it just didn't matter really.
We loved it, and will serve it again. I hope if you try it you'll love it too. It will be a dish I will make again.
Chicken and Red Pepper Lasagna
Recipe By :Ginny
Serving Size : 6
2 pounds chicken breast
16 ounces Mezzetta Deli-sliced Roasted Red Bell Peppers -- drained
1 tablespoon avocado oil -- or olive oil
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon marsala cooking wine
4 slices Gouda deli sliced cheese
1 cup mozzarella, shredded low-moisture, part skim
With a very sharp knife, slice thin slices off chicken breast. This works best if you have a couple very large chicken breasts rather than small ones. Slice them as thin as you can get them.
In food processor, process drained red peppers until as smooth as you can get it.
Add avocado or olive oil, oregano, and garlic powder. Add cooking wine.
Process again until combined.
In 9-inch square baking pan, layer 1/2 of the chicken slices. Cover with half the red pepper sauce. Top with slices of gouda cheese. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella on top.
Add another layer of the rest of the chicken slices. Top with remaining sauce and mozzarella cheese. Bake in preheated 375F oven for 45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
