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.

    1. You can use another cheese in place of the blue cheese. I would recommend something like Monterrey Jack.

  1. I am wondering what could I replace the ricotta with. That’s the only thing my son doesn’t like. Also, just read one of your posts (I think about the Dutch baby) mentioning you went to Switzerland and other nearby countries. Did you stay in the German part of Switzerland or visited other areas? I am from the French part of Switzerland on Lake Geneva.

    1. Hi Marie!
      You could replace the ricotta by just using mozzarella in place of it or even a white cheddar. It will all melt nicely and be scrumptious! When we visited Switzerland, we stayed in the Lake Geneva area and then on up into Interlaken, Murren, Bern, etc. I still talk about the beds and how close we were to the stars when we stayed at a bed and breakfast in Murren – it was called Walter’s. It was absolutely glorious. One of my favorite places! Now I want to go back!!!! 🙂

  2. Oh I really want to try this! I’m wondering though how it would turn out using boneless skinless thighs, my husband is not a fan of chicken breast.

    1. Hi Sandee,
      Boneless, skinless thighs should work just fine in this recipe, too. I hope you enjoy it!
