Reviewed skillet chicken lasagna

3 days ago on

This was great!!! Very flavorful!!! I was a little skeptical of a chicken lasagne, but this was awesome :0) I did use a 1# box of pasta and a 24 oz jar of marinara. Ree also said you could use cooking wine instead of stock, so I split the difference. Will definitely make again!

The best I've had!! The zest doesn't really add a citrus flavor as much as it adds a brightness/freshness and enhances the apple flavor. Another great recipe from Ina :o)

This is sincerely great comfort food at its best! Delicious!!!! And I like that the dumplings don't really get soggy as I'm not a fan of soggy, squishy bread LOL

Can't believe this only has 4 stars - we LOVE this dish and make it often. Simple ingredients but combined is sooooo good. I usually use the whole tub of marscapone though :0)"

Absolutely awesome!! I did use 2 cans of artichokes as my grocer did not have frozen artichokes at the time. "Mis en place" this one and making it is smooth and easy :O) Best made listening to some Billy Joel and enjoying a nice glass of wine."

I am not a stew lover - but had confidence that if there was a stew I was going to like - it would be Giada's :O) The whole family loved it!! Easy to prepare. Definitely a keeper! When asked what I am making for supper - I just say "it's a Giada thing"...enough said :O)"
