Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 190°C / fan oven 170°C / Gas 5. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and add the chicken, stir-frying it over a high heat until seared and browned – about 3-4 minutes. Add the leeks and cook for a further 2-3 minutes
  2. Tip in the sweetcorn and the Dolmio Roasted Onion & Garlic Sauce for Lasagne, stir and bring to the boil, then remove from the heat.
  3. Tip half the mixture into a large rectangular baking dish, measuring about 26cm x 20cm. Arrange half the Lasagne sheets on top, then spread half the Dolmio Creamy Sauce for Lasagne over them. Repeat the layers, then sprinkle the grated cheese evenly over the surface
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until cooked and golden brown. Allow to stand for a few minutes, then serve with a fresh salad.
Top Tip for making Chicken, leek and sweetcorn lasagne

You could add 100g sliced closed cup mushrooms to the mixture when you add the sweetcorn. Make sure you choose lasagne sheets that don’t need pre-cooking (most varieties sold are ready-to-use)
