Happy January!

We’re kicking off a brand new series today — my 6 Ingredient Suppers series, where I’m going to be bringing you easy, totally manageable dinners with 6 ingredients (plus a few very basic “free” ingredients) that my family loves and yours will, too!

Every month will have a different theme, and January’s theme is Six Ingredient Slow Cooker Suppers!

I’m also running a giveaway every month in my Facebook group, centred around the theme of the series.

So overall, there is going to be lots of fun stuff going on, and a lot more easy family dinner ideas hitting the blog and your inbox.

Crockpot White Chicken Lasagna

We’re launching this series with one of my favorites recipes that I tested for 6 Ingredient Slow Cooker month — this White Chicken Lasagna that’s made completely in the crockpot, it’s super creamy and flavorful!

I love a traditional lasagna (if you do too, check out my Easy Lasagna recipe!), but there is so much prep involved, and so many ingredients, and even my easier no boil lasagna recipe ends up being a once-in-a-while kind of meal.

If you have a little more time, you might enjoy this Taco Lasagna Recipe or this White Chicken Lasagna with Ham and Spinach.

But this crockpot lasagna comes together with just minutes of prep (one of the bonuses of only using 6 ingredients!), and is ready in a few hours.

With pasta, we’re just not going to be able to let it cook all day, so if you work out of the house, this might be a great recipe for a busy weekend or Sunday lunch.

I love quick slow cooker recipes like this for days when the kids have activities after school because I can get it started before they get home, and be free for driving to lessons or homework or whatever else is needed!

Can I make this White Chicken Lasagna on the stove top?

You can absolutely make this on the stove top if you prefer, without even changing the recipe much.

You can place all of the ingredients except for the cheese into a large, deep skillet. Bring to a simmer, then cover and reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the chicken is cooked, the noodles are tender and have absorbed most of the liquid.

Top with cheese, cover and let melt, then serve.

Variations on this Crockpot White Chicken Lasagna:

Obviously, because we’re sticking with a simple version with only a few ingredients, there are lots of ways to mix this up!

  • Add in more veggies: mushrooms, broccoli, or peas would be great in here, but you may want to add them close to the end of the cook time.
  • Only have plain cream cheese? That’s totally fine! You may want to add in a half teaspoon of garlic herb seasoning or Italian seasoning to the recipe.
  • Use an Italian cheese blend for even more flavor.
  • Swap the chicken breast for smoked sausage, or leave it out for a vegetarian version.
  • Swap the noodles: I wanted to use traditional lasagna noodles for this white lasagna, but you can absolutely use short pasta instead — it will cook slightly faster, so check after 15 minutes and every 5 minutes after that. You will want to substitute the noodles for roughly an equivalent weight of other pasta.

  • 2 small boneless skinless chicken breasts (or 1 large)

  • 1/3 cup frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/4 cup herb and garlic cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Top with cheese, cover, and cook on high for 15 minutes or until noodles are al dente. (If you want to thicken the sauce further, you can add a small amount of corn starch combined with water at this time)
  • Turn the crockpot off and let rest for 10-15 minutes before serving.

    Hello I don’t have a big enough pan to make the white chicken skillet lasagna but love it soo much but have a crockpot would I be able to use the heavy cream in the crockpot instead of the cream cheese and cook it in the crockpot the same way as this recipe?

    • The Recipe Rebel says

      Hi Amanda, while I haven’t tried it myself, it could work. You can use heavy cream in the crockpot because I use it in many other dishes. If you decide to experiment, I’d love to know how it goes.

  2. Rossi says

    I’m going to try to vacuum seal and freeze this. It’s definitely a way to mix in spinach and peas. I cook ahead for my daughters family and I think they would love this.

    • The Recipe Rebel says

      Anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on how you are defrosting it. It’s best to follow the instructions on your box/bag of spinach.

  3. Erica says

    I’ve made this countless times and it is such a family favorite! I tend to throw in whatever extra veggies I have and it’s a delicious meal that usually produces leftovers, which I love 😃

  4. says

    I can’t find herb and garlic cream cheese at my grocery store. What can I use instead, especially since it’s your secret ingredient?

    • Nadia says

      I hadn’t read through all your notes above. You address my question above already. I only found Cracker Barrel Garlic & Herb Cheddar Spreadable Cheese. Will this work or should I just use the plain cream cheese and add garlic herb seasoning?

  5. Aleah Calvery says

    Do you think if I used a different kind of cheese it would be okay? I don’t have mozzarella and it’s raining where I am at so I don’t really want to go to the store lol

  6. Lisa says

    Love anything crockpot! This was perfect for our busy family’s meal. I used a half bag of fresh spinach (you know the prewashed kind from grocery store) because I didn’t have frozen. It was perfect! Not too watery or anything like that. Thanks for the great recipe. Another winner!

  7. Jen says

    This was such a great way to sneak in spinach into my kids’ dinner and they ate it up without any hesitation. Thank you so much for such a delicious recipe.
