  4. Heat oven to 350°F. Bake covered lasagna for 50 minutes. Uncover baking dish; bake an additional 18 to 22 minutes or until bubbly and thoroughly heated. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

2. Purchase 1/2-inch-thick slices of cooked chicken from the deli and cube the slices for the 3 cups needed in this recipe.

3. Serve warm flour tortillas and sliced mango or papaya with this lasagna.

      Thanks for this recipe and for including the nutrition information too. I will try this out on my family soon. I may attempt to "lighten" it up a bit by using some fat-free or low fat ingredients though. This looks so yummy!
