    Recipe Introduction

    Very rich, high in calories, and good for an occasional treat. Freezes well.

    List of Ingredients

    3 chicken breasts
    1/2 cup chicken broth
    1 pound lasagna noodle
    1/2 pound ham -- shredded
    1 tablespoon minced parsley
    1 cup butter
    3/4 cup flour
    3 cups milk
    2 1/4 cups half and half -- or heavy cream
    1 1/2 cups chicken broth
    2 1/4 cups Parmesan cheese -- grated


    Cook chicken in Dutch oven with 1/2 cup broth (per recipe) and a small
    amount of water. Cool and cut into bite size pieces. Save broth. Cook
    lasagna noodles with 1 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon cooking oil. Drain and
    spread on wax paper. Melt butter. Add flour. Cook and stir slowly. Add milk,
    cream or half and half, and reserved broth. Cook till boiling, stirring
    constantly. Add cheese and parsley. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Spread
    a little sauce on bottom of pan and layer noodles (about 6) sauce, chicken,
    ham. Repeat 3 times ending with sauce. To freeze now: Wrap tightly with
    freezer paper OR place dish in 2-gallon freezer bag OR vacuum seal pan.
    Label and freeze. To bake now and freeze later: Bake uncovered at 350
    degrees for 30-35 minutes. Cool. Wrap and freeze. To serve: For uncooked
    lasagna, thaw and bake covered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Uncover and
    bake an additional 15 minutes. To bake from the frozen stage, add 30 minutes
    to the total baking time. For pre-cooked lasagna, cover and re-heat 15-20
    minutes at 350 degrees. Comments: This makes A LOT ? actually more than one
    9x13 pan so I usually make 3 little pans instead of one big one. Containers
