Ingredients

  • 1 box lasagna noodles
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 3 cups ricotta cheese, room temperature
  • 2 chicken breasts, fully cooked and diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoons italian seasoning
  • 2 jars pasta sauce
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup grana padano cheese, grated

Instructions

  • Cook the lasagna noodles al dente, according to package directions. They will become sticky, so drain the water and allow them to cool individually on wax paper until it is time to use them.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the egg yolks, ricotta cheese, cooked chicken breast, salt, pepper and italian seasoning.
  • In a cold, deep dish electric skillet, pour 1 cup of the pasta sauce into the pan and spread evenly.
  • Add a single layer of noodles to the skillet, cutting them to size in order to fit properly.
  • Top with half of the ricotta mixture, spreading it evenly with a spatula. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
  • Add a second layer of noodles, then another 1 ½ cups pasta sauce.
  • Add a third layer of lasagna noodles. Spread the remaining ricotta mixture on top.
  • Lastly, add a final layer of noodles and the remaining pasta sauce.
  • Sprinkle with mozzarella and grana padano cheeses, as well as some italian seasoning if desired.
  • Cover the skillet and heat to 325°F. Once it reaches that temperature, reduce heat to 200°F and cook for 35 minutes or until lasagna is heated through completely. Let stand covered for 5 minutes. Serve.

The process of baking a lasagna in an electric skillet is hardly different than a standard lasagna recipe. The main difference stems from layering your lasagna directly into the electric skillet rather than into a casserole dish. If you’re concerned about dealing with a hot pan, this recipe makes it easy by keeping the skillet cool until the lasagna is ready to bake! Only at that point will you switch on the heat, adjusting it as it reaches temperature. In my experience, this recipe bakes lasagna faster than the time that most lasagnas require in a traditional oven. Thanks to the evenly concentrated heat of electric skillets, quicker baking may indeed be possible!
