Creamy Chicken Lasagna



3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
6 uncooked lasagna noodles
1 cube chicken bouillon
1/4 cup hot water
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 (26 oz.) jar spaghetti sauce

1. Bring large pot of slightly salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna noodles for 8-10 minutes. Drain, rinse with cold water, & set aside.

2. Place chicken in saucepan with just enough water to cover & bring to a boil. Cook for 20 minutes, or until no longer pink & juices run clear. Remove from saucepan & shred. I put mine in my food processor for about 20 seconds and it's done!

3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dissolve chicken bouillon cube in 1/4 cup hot water. In a large bowl, mix the chicken with the bouillon, cream cheese, & 1 cup mozzarella cheese.

4. Spread 1/3 of spaghetti sauce in bottom of 9 inch square baking dish. Cover with chicken mixture, & top with 3 lasagna noodles; repeat. Top with remaining sauce, & sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.

5. Bake for 45 minutes in preheated oven until golden and bubbling.

Mexican Casserole

This recipe is SOOOOOOOO easy and is really yummy. Literally, 20 minutes! Beat that Rachael Ray! My mother-in-law Joyce made this dish for us over the Thanksgiving holiday and it was scrumptious. I made it for supper tonight because after I ate it in Mississippi, I haven't gotten it off my mind. Also, I am addicted to all things Mexican and food related!

Mexican Casserole

- 1 lb. ground sirloin
- 1 can Rotel (I used mild)
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- 1 can chicken and rice soup
- 1/2 package of Taco seasoning mix
- 1/2 bag of tortilla chips, crushed
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place crushed tortilla chips in botton of casserole.
Brown ground meat and drain. Add Rotel and both cans of soup (don't drain anything). Add taco seasoning mix. Stir and heat through until bubbly (about 3 minutes). Pour mixture over crushed tortilla chips. Cover with cheese and bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly delicious! Enjoy!
