Chicken and Broccoli Lasagna

This chicken and broccoli lasagna is comfort food at its best. It’s creamy, cheesy, and oh-so-delicious! This dish features layers of pasta, ricotta, chicken, broccoli, and gooey cheese, all smothered in a creamy white sauce. You can make the bechamel sauce up to 5 days in advance or take a shortcut and purchase a couple of jars of white Alfredo sauce. It’s even easier if you use a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken or leftover chicken from last night’s dinner.
