Everyone loved my Rotisserie chicken lasagna because it was so delicious and an easy chicken recipe! What could be more effortless and satisfying than cooking college recipes using Rotisserie chicken? With deadlines and finals quickly approaching, I think I can speak for every college student when I say the best way to settle that testing anxiety is through comfort food. But, one fault in this plan is that a good home cooked meal can be very hard to come by when your mother lives several miles away. Holly Clegg’s Kitchen 101 can turn any hungry college kid into a confident cook who can whip up their mama’s cooking in no time. I made this easy chicken lasagna, which is also a healthy chicken lasagna, to keep me full and happy for the rest of the week! This is the perfect college chicken recipe for sure!
