Chicken & Mushroom Lasagne

This recipe was originally from my mother-in-law. She was an amazing cook, and I was very fortunate to be given many of her favourite recipes over the years. I think of her when I cook this.
This was not a  Thermomix recipe originally,  I have adapted it.
You can substitute the wine for chicken stock but I suggest that you use wine if you can (open a nice bottle and drink the rest with the meal;)) The combination of the wine and the oregano really does make this very flavoursome. And don’t be worried that the meat sauce has a lot of liquid, this is normal and the liquid soaks into the lasagne sheets making them super soft and tasty.

    I made this last night DELICIOUS!! I added spinach to the chicken layer because I didn’t have enough mushrooms. Also used Thermomix EDC 3 tbs veg stock with 125 ml of water instead of wine. Lasagne sheets were fresh egg pasta. Thank you Karen

      Thanks Christine – so glad to hear you enjoyed it. The spinach sounds like a great addition. I am going to add some next time I make it.
