Herby Chicken Lasagne

You Will Need –

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp dried tarragon
  • 1 onion finely, chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and finely chopped
  • 50g plain flour
  • 500g passata with onion and garlic
  • 80g soft cheese
  • 460g chicken breast fillet, cut into pieces
  • 200g young leaf spinach
  • 300ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 4 fresh lasagne sheets
  • 30g lighter mature cheddar, grated
  • 70g wild rocket leaves, to serve

Steps To Make Your Lasagne –

1. Oil your pan and cook your chicken. When cooked add in the onion and carrots, cook this for 5 minutes until softened.

2. Add in the flour for the last 2 minutes and 1 tsp of tarragon.

3. Stir in the passata, then cook for 4-5 minutes. Stir through half the soft cheese, the chicken breast pieces and the spinach. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the spinach has wilted.

4. Meanwhile, pour the milk into a small pan and set over a medium-low heat. Mix together the remaining flour with 3 tbsp water to form a paste. Just before the milk comes to a simmer, whisk in the paste, whisking continuously for 4-5 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining soft cheese.

5. Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Spoon 1⁄3 of the chicken mixture into a 1½-litre baking dish, then top with lasagne sheets and a layer of white sauce. Continue layering the chicken mixture, sauce and lasagne sheets, finishing with a lasagne sheet topped with white sauce. Sprinkle over the grated cheese and remaining tarragon. Bake for 30 minutes, until golden. Serve with the rocket leaves.
