  • Layer lasagna sheets, sauce, and ⅓rd of chopped chicken. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese.
  • Repeat steps for the second and third layers, reserving some sauce and lasagna sheets.
  • For the final layer, cover with lasagna sheets, remaining sauce, and a generous amount of mozzarella cheese.

*Baking:*
