Ingredients

  • 1 cup breadcrumbs Panko
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 lb ground chicken
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 12 lasagna noodles
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 2 1/2 tbsp flour
  • 12 slices deli ham
  • 12 slices Swiss cheese
  • 2 cups chicken broth

Instructions

Filling

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and start a large pot of water to boil for the noodles.
  • In a large skillet, combine the ground chicken, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp paprika, and 1/2 tsp salt. Cook on medium to medium-high heat until done (10-15 minutes). Remove from heat.
  • While waiting for the ground chicken to brown and the water in the pot is boiling, boil the lasagna noodles for 6-8 minutes or according to directions on the box. Drain and spray with non-stick spray or olive oil so they won’t stick together or to the counters.
  • While the noodles are cooling, start the sauce. Melt 4 tbsp of butter in a skillet on medium-low heat.

Sauce

  • Once the butter is melted, sprinkle the flour evenly over while whisking it quickly. 
  • After 30 seconds, slowly whisk in the chicken broth. Continue with the whisk until the cooked flour is incorporated into the broth (without lumps). Bring to a simmer.
  • Add to the sauce 1/8 tsp cayenne powder, 1/2 tsp smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, and lemon juice. Allow the sauce to boil until slightly thickened (about 2 minutes).
  • Once the sauce is thickened, remove from heat and add the pieces of Swiss cheese, stirring slowly as they melt.
  • On a large flat surface, place a lasagna noodle on the bottom, with layers of ham, cheese, and ground chicken on top.

Breading

  • Slowly roll the lasagna noodle and place in a large 13x9 dish with the seam-side down. Continue until all noodles are rolled.
  • Drizzle the sauce on top of the rolls in the dish.
  • Combine the breading ingredient: 1 cup panko, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper. Sprinkle on top of the lasagna rolls and sauce.
  • Bake uncovered in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is thoroughly melted inside. If preparing these ahead of time (unbaked), bake in the oven for 30 minutes if chilled.
