Tips for Best Results
Don't overcook the lasagna noodles. You want them to be al dente, or just soft enough to roll without being so soft they fall apart. They will finish softening up as they bake.
Make extra chicken when you grill, dice it up and freeze it in recipe-sized amounts so that you can throw this meal together quickly on a weeknight. Just partially thaw the chicken in the microwave, and mix it up into the recipe. Let it finish thawing and come up to temperature (165ºF) in the oven as it bakes. Use freezer-quality zipper bags to freeze the chicken.
Purchase extra rotisserie chickens when they are on sale and remove the meat from the carcass and dice. Then your shredded chicken is ready to use when you are. Store in the refrigerator for a couple of days or in the freezer.
Make Chicken Alfredo Roll-Ups ahead of time. You can prepare a pan full of the roll-ups and then freeze the pan instead of baking it. Make sure it is sealed in an air-tight container. This will keep for up to three months. Bake the chicken roll-ups from frozen or thaw the pan in the refrigerator before baking.
Freeze baked leftover chicken alfredo roll-ups in individual serving-sized containers that fit in a microwave. You will have the perfect grab-and-go lunches. Store in an airtight container, and the dish will keep in the freezer for several months.
Yes, this is a great dish to make ahead of time. I like to double the recipe and make two for a second easy meal idea.
Yes, just seal rollups in an airtight container and store in the freezer.
A nice loaf of crusty bread, a crisp green salad or garlic rolls all go great with roll ups.
Add some red pepper flakes for a nice kick.
