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.
