White Chicken Lasagna Rollups

 Creamy white chicken lasagna roll ups – an instant family favorite! 

White Chicken Lasagna Rollups

Four days after we got married my husband and I took off for Schaumburg Illinois for a business trip. We were there for two weeks and over the weekend in between, we stayed in a hotel right smack dab in the middle of Chicago. It was February. You know how they call Chicago the windy city? That wind chill factor in the middle of wintertime is brutal. The first night in town we planned on walking 8 or 10 blocks to a pizza place that was supposed to be incredibly yummy. By the time we got there, our faces were frozen, I swear to you I couldn’t even move my lips. I’ve never been so cold in my life. On top of that we were starving and dying for some greasy, ooey gooey cheesy pizza.

So naturally there would be an hour and 15 minute wait with a line out the door.

We debated for a minute but ultimately decided we needed food in our ice-cold bellies pronto and a 75 minute wait in negative 2 degree weather was not going to happen. We ended up ducking into a fancy-pants Italian restaurant called Rosebud on Rush, desperate for some carbs and some separation from the crazy-cold temperatures outside. We ordered two plates of food. I can’t remember what my husband ordered but I ordered lasagna and I swear to you it was the size of a football field. Seriously, so. BIG.      You guys. I don’t even like lasagna.

Don’t ask me why I ordered lasagna, I’ve never enjoyed it. Or rather I’ve never enjoyed traditional red-sauce-lasagna. It’s not my thing. But my mother in law makes a mean white chicken lasagna I’m crazy about and this recipe is a little bit of a spin-off from that deliciousness.

I love these roll ups because they are like personalized little lasagnas. Actually they aren’t that little, one of them fills me up, but they’re individual-sized and that’s perfect for serving up dinner to kids and adults.  My favorite part is definitely the filling. It’s so creamy and saucy and cheesy and wonderful. My husband said this dish is one of his top-5 favorite ever Creme de la Crumb recipes. That is sayin’ something since I don’t share a single recipe my husband give his official taste-tester stamp of approval. These creamy white chicken lasagna roll ups are a definitely a must-make so put it on your list -they’ll be an instant favorite for your family too!

Ok, totally in love with lasagna rolls. Not only are they so much more fun than straight up lasagna but you don’t feel as stuffed when your finished eating them.

Can’t wait to try this white sauce version girl, gorgeous photos Tiff!

Love the alfredo sauce addition to these! Great twist on a classic.

any recommendations on a good alfredo sauce?

    I really like Bertolli! But any basic homemade or store bought sauce will do for these roll ups. If you get an off-brand, I recommend stirring in a touch of salt and maybe a teaspoon of Italian seasoning just to give it a little extra flavor 🙂

Have you ever tried freezing this for a meal later? It sounds so yummy, and I try to make meals in advance for busy weeks,

    Hi Michelle, this would be a great freezer meal! I would suggest following the directions up until the lasagna is “rolled up”. Then I would freeze them just like that, without sauce and keep the sauce in the fridge until the day-of. When you’re ready to serve them, just pop them into the oven with the sauce for maybe 25-30 minutes or until heated through. 🙂

Could i substitute heavy cream for the cream cheese?

I tried this recipe tonight and although it was one of my first experiences with cooking, I just had to feature it in a blog post! I linked this page and used your photo, but gave you full credit for both. If that’s a problem leave let me know and I’ll be happy to delete it!

Thanks so much for sharing this great recipe!

Can i use microwave instead of oven to cook the lasagna?

    Hi Farra, technically, yes you could microwave it because the chicken is already cooked. 🙂

Could you substitute the cream cheese with ricotta?? I’d like to make these but a friend of mine doesn’t like cream cheese:)

    Hi Jodie, I haven’t tried ricotta instead of cream cheese in this recipe but I bet that it would still be really yummy!

I made this over the weekend. Not only was it easy it tasted wonderful as well. I used gluten free lasagna noodles and it was a hit. I will be making this again.

Hello I just wanted to stop by and thank you for this fabulous recipe. I made this last night and it was delicious. My boyfriend says it’s in his top five things that I make which says a lot because I cook very often. I think next time I’ll probably add some spinach to it! My son is begging for the leftovers tonight! Thank you!

Kind of rich. But good!!

These look yummy! I think i’ll try adding some spinach to the filling as well, thank you!

Just seen this yesterday and HAD TO try. My variation is to use bacon alfredo sauce, fresh spinach and parmesan/romano mix inside, served with freshly steamed green beans and a couple heirloom tomato wedges. Iced tea and lemon to drink. So simple!

    Oh my gosh bacon alfredo sauce and the spinach…. so genius!!! Glad it turned out so amazingly for you Michelle!

hi loved this recipe. I have one question , where i live I can only get Instant (no boil) Lasagna noodles. Can I use this ?
thanks
Marcie

    Hi Marcie, I haven’t ever used instant noodles so I’m not really sure how they work? The idea though is that you need to have them soft so that you can roll them up with the chicken mixture before baking them, if your noodles are bendable then they would work for this!

It was good, but there was so much cheese it made it too rich and salty. Next time, I’ll try cutting the cheese in half.

Do you know how many cups or ounces of rotisserie chicken should be used instead of 2 chicken breasts?

    Hi Tracy, you’d probably need about 2 cups shredded chicken.

Is there a substitute I could use for cream cheese?
Thank you in advance.
Also, could you use a red sauce with this?

Could you use red sauce with is dish? Also, is there something I could substitute for cream cheese?
Thank you in advance

    Hi Jill, you could definitely use red sauce, and you could substute another white cheese for the cream cheese if you wanted. Or ricotta cheese.

Made these tonight and OMG! They were so good. This it the 3rd recipe of yours I have tried AnD all 3 were Hits with my husband. I halved the recipe and made my own sauce. Will definitely make them again. Thank you for sharing!

When I saw this recipe i said to myself that if it’s good i’ll make a comment to your blog. And here I am writing a review. Thanks for sharing your recipe. It’s really good!
