KEY INGREDIENTS
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 can (12 fluid ounces) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 1 can (7.6 ounces) NESTLÉ® Media Crema
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 dried ancho chiles, soaked in hot water
  • 2 dried guajillo chiles, soaked in hot water
  • 1 tablespoon MAGGI® Granulated Chicken Flavor Bouillon
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion salt
  • 2 tablespoons corn oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cooked and shredded
  • 3 sprigs finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 9 lasagna noodles
  • 3/4 cup grated Manchego cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated cotija cheese
  • 1 ancho chile, cut into strips and fried
  • 2 sprigs of fresh parsley
MAKE IT
Step 1
Preheat oven to 400° F. For the sauce, blend the evaporated milk, NESTLÉ® Media Crema, water, 3 pieces of ancho chile, guajillo chiles, chicken bouillon and onion salt. Heat blended mixture until it thickens slightly, stirring constantly to avoid sticking.
Step 2
For the filling, heat the oil. Fry the onion and garlic until lightly browned, then add the chicken and finely chopped parsley; cook for 2 minutes.
Step 3
In a greased square baking dish, place a tablespoon of sauce, a layer of lasagna sheets, a layer of filling, a layer of sauce and a layer of Manchego cheese; repeat the procedure until all the ingredients are finished, ending with 1 layer of cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes; remove foil and bake for 10 more minutes. Serve topped with Cotija cheese, fried ancho chile strips and the parsley leaves.
Step 4
Remember to remove the foil 10 minutes before the end of the baking time so that the cheese browns slightly.
