Cozy Chicken Broccoli Slow Cooker Lasagna. You read that right, Lasagna in the slow cooker. You’ve got to try this!
I’ve been using my slow cooker(s) a lot lately.
Like… Did you know you could make slow cooker lasagna?
I had no idea!
I was pulling out no boil lasagna one day to make my ultra comforting Chicken Broccoli Lasagna recipe, and wondered if there was any reason why this most comforting of dishes couldn’t be made in the crockpot.
I whisked up a quick cream sauce then started layering the pasta sheets, chicken, fresh broccoli florets, and cheese just as I would in a casserole dish.
Because the edges of a slow cooker are generally round, you need to break the lasagna sheets at angles to create uniform layers. No big deal. It’s kind of like putting a puzzle together.
Then I flipped the switch on my slow cooker and crossed my fingers.
Lo and behold, my rich cheesy Chicken Broccoli Slow Cooker Lasagna came out just fine.
More than fine, really.
The slow cooker created nice crispy edges all around the lasagna, as well as a lovely dense texture.
Plus, the chicken-broccoli-cheese combo offers the appeal of classic broccoli cheese soup, yet as a substantial dinner entree. It’s a nice diversion from classic lasagna that everyone will love.
I believe I’ll be making slow cooker lasagna of all varieties from this day forward.
