Buffalo Chicken Lasagna combines two favorite dishes in one - buffalo chicken and lasagna! // addapinch.com

Oh my goodness. If you guys like buffalo chicken nearly as much as my family does, then this recipe is going to be one that you have to try. I love to prepare this dish as a make-ahead to help me throughout the week since it makes a huge recipe perfect for serving a crowd or serving for a couple of meals. But, you can also take this recipe and divide it in half into smaller baking dishes, bake one for now and freeze the other for later or even for sharing. Talk about a win win!

Easy Buffalo Chicken Lasagna Recipe

To make this buffalo chicken lasagna, I start by cooking boneless, skinless chicken breasts that I’ve cubed along with onion, celery until the chicken is browned and cooked through and the onion and celery are tender. Then, I stir in the garlic and cook it for a minute or two before adding in my diced tomatoes, the majority of my homemade buffalo sauce, a little water and salt and pepper. Let me tell you guys, that mixture is pure heaven right by itself and is perfect to go on salads or mixed into so many other dishes.

While my chicken mixture is cooking, I have another pot going to boil my lasagna noodles. Of course, you can use the no-boil variety or replace the noodles with zucchini sliced really thinly instead. Both work just as well and are amazing!

Once the noodles are ready, you’ll stir together your ricotta cheese and some blue cheese and start layering for lasagna! You’ll bake for a while covered and then bake the remainder of the time uncovered until the buffalo chicken lasagna is bubbly and the cheese is melted. Remove it from the oven, pour on the remaining buffalo sauce and let it stand for a few minutes before serving.

Make Ahead Instructions

Prepare recipe as instructed, without baking. Wrap tightly and store in the refrigerator up to 2 days. When ready to cook, bake as instructed and serve.

    Just a question, 3 chicken breasts, not cut up?  Then you list cubed up chicken breasts.  Is it the 3 chicken breasts cubed up and not both?

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Hi Colleen,
      It’s only the 1 1/2 pounds, or about 3 chicken breasts, cubed. Hope you enjoy it! Thanks!

  2. Angela Marie says:

    Robin I’d like to make this for my boyfriends surprise party. I need to make it two days in advance and bake it day of OR make it and bake it two days in advance then reheat it in the oven day of. Would either of these options work? Surprises are tough. 

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Hi Angela,
      I should be just fine to make it two days ahead and bake on the day of serving.
      I hope he has a great surprise party! Thanks! xo

  3. Susan says:

    Hi Robyn,
    I enjoy getting your recipes and the ones I have tried are delicious!  I want to make this but you said you could use thinly sliced zucchini instead of lasagna noodles.  Does the zucchini “noodles” get mushy after baking?  I have one large zucchini left and would love to use it in this recipe.
    Any advice or suggestions are greatly appreciated; thank you!

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Hi Susan,
      I’m so glad that you are enjoying the recipes! The zucchini in this recipe doesn’t get mushy, but does get tender. I hope you enjoy it!

    Super tasty! My boyfriend ate 3 helpings so I guess he liked it!! I added a green bell pepper and a couple extra oz of bleu cheese. Bought a 6 oz container of Bleu cheese so I threw it all in! Also, I took a little shortcut and just used Franks Buffalo Sauce. It turned out fantastic especially since this is only my 3rd time making lasagna.

    Thank you for the great recipe!!

    I am going to make this on the weekend. I’m wondering about your Buffalo Sauce Recipe though. I’m not sure I would like the vinegar and worcestershire sauce. How do you think it would be if I just used the butter and hot sauce? Looks soooo amazing. My mouth is watering already! Thanks!

      I made this on Saturday. Wow!! It was awesome! It was even better the next day heated up. This one gets two thumbs up!

    Made this tonight for dinner with only a couple of tweaks. This is a really excellent recipe. I just added a bit of heavy cream to the sauce and used my own Buffalo sauce. Of course, now I have leftovers for the world as it is just my husband and me :D. I also made your chocolate cake for dessert. Just me, having fun on your website today.

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Oh goodness Cristi! I’m so glad you tried both the buffalo chicken lasagna and the cake! If you have a lot of the lasagna remaining, you can easily freeze it. Just portion it into sealable freezer bags, remove as much air as possible and then store in the freezer for up to 3 months. That way, you’ll have supper solved in a jiffy another night or two! So glad you enjoyed it! xo
