Cheesy Ranch Chicken Lasagna

I saw this recipe all over Pinterest. It thought it looked good, but I also thought it'd be better with some tweaks. So here is MY version.


2 large chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
2 (1oz) packs of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix (NOT dip mix)
2 (12 oz) cans of evaporated milk
2 cups cheddar cheese (shredded)
2 cups mozzarella cheese (shredded)
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese
1 (32 oz) container of ricotta cheese
1 1/2 boxes of lasagna noodles, cooked (I used 12 -14 noodles)


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

2. Combine 1 package ranch dressing mix and both cans of evaporated milk into 3 qt. saucepan. Heat on low until dry ingredients are completely dissolved. Simmer for 20-25 mins. Stirring frequently. Pour on to shredded cooked chicken and stir well.

3. Combine mozzarella, cream cheese, ricotta, and last package of ranch dressing mix. Stir until well blended.

4. In well greased 9x13 baking dish, stack layers. Start with noodles, followed by half the chicken mixture, more noodles, cheese mixture, noodles, the rest of the chicken mixture. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top.

5. Cover and bake for 30 mins, or until bubbly and golden. Let set for 5-10 mins before serving.
