Anna’s Cheesy Chicken Lasagne

October 16, 2022

Anna Van Dyken, recipe converted

Converting Anna Van Dyken’s Cheesy Chicken Lasagne in my Thermomix® made life so easy. I’m a messy cook at the best of times and my Thermomix (sort of) stops this. Just don’t ask Chris how the kitchen looks when I cook and if you do – “HE LIES” 🤣

This recipe is fantastic and super easy to make. In a Thermomix – even easier and quicker! The biggest bonus – it’s yummy!

I have made it to freeze so we can take it out of the freezer the night before and dinner if ready for the oven the next night. Great idea when short on time. I always undercook by about 15 minutes so I can give the recipe that little bit longer without drying it out.

This is from Anna’s amazing second book. It is page 148 – How I’ve Kept The Weight Off
