Cooking Light JANUARY 2006

  • Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces, divided
  • 3 cups 1% low-fat milk
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour (about 1 1/2 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Cooking spray
  • 12 no-cook lasagna noodles (8 ounces), divided
  • 8 ounces thinly sliced 96% fat-free deli ham, chopped, divided
  • Chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Place broth and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and bring to a boil. Add chicken; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until chicken is done. Remove chicken from pan with a slotted spoon; set aside.

Combine milk, flour, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a bowl; stir well with a whisk until smooth. Add milk mixture to broth in pan. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Cook 1 minute or until mixture thickens, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add 1 cup cheese and parsley, stirring until cheese melts.

Spread 1 cup sauce over bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Arrange 3 lasagna noodles over sauce. Spoon 3/4 cup sauce evenly over noodles. Top evenly with one-third ham and one-third chicken. Repeat layers twice, ending with noodles. Top with remaining sauce. Sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.

Cover with foil very lightly coated with cooking spray; bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Remove and discard foil; bake 10 minutes or until the cheese lightly browns. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.

Wine note: With a cue from the dish's overall unfussy character, the ideal wine needs to be inexpensive and uncomplicated. One of my favorite "comfort wines" to go with a comfort food like this is Australian shiraz. Annie's Lane Shiraz 2002 from Australia's Clare Valley ($15) is a simple blast of berriness with a soft texture. -Karen MacNeil
