  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. In small microwavable bowl, microwave 2 tablespoons of the butter uncovered on High 20 to 40 seconds or until melted. Add bread crumbs to bowl, and stir until mixed well; set aside.

    In 4-cup glass measuring cup, mix broth, milk, mustard, thyme and pepper; set aside. In 4-quart saucepan, melt remaining 1/3 cup butter over medium heat. With whisk, stir in flour until smooth. Cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Gradually stir broth mixture into saucepan. Increase heat to medium-high; heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute; reduce heat to medium. Stir in cream cheese and Swiss cheese. Cook, beating mixture with whisk, until cheeses are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat.

    Spread 1 cup of the sauce in bottom of baking dish; top with a layer of 3 noodles. On top of noodles, spoon 1 cup of the chicken, 1/3 cup of the ham, 1 cup of the sauce and 1/2 cup of the Monterey Jack cheese. Repeat two more layers, starting with noodles. Top with remaining noodles, sauce and cheese. Spray piece of foil with cooking spray; cover sprayed side down. Bake 35 minutes.

Expert Tips

  • Oven-ready lasagna noodles are found in the pasta aisle of the grocery store. They’re great to use, as they don’t require boiling before assembling the lasagna.
  • Leftover cooked chicken or deli rotisserie chicken may be used in this recipe.
