Chicken & Bacon Lasagna Roll Ups

Chicken and Bacon Lasagna Roll Ups -

 Lasagna Roll Ups are everything you’d find in a traditional lasagna dish.  Except the filling and sauce is all rolled up with each individual lasagna pasta.  Everything stays tucked in!

These are not your usual lasagna roll ups, though.  Each pasta is filled with an abundance of cheeses;  tender, shredded chicken;  crispy bacon sauteed with onion and garlic;  and finally, topped with Parmesan Cream Sauce!

Chicken Bacon Lasagna Roll Ups -

It just seems as though chicken and bacon were very much made for each other!

So, let me show you how to make these pillow-y delights!  Super easy!

Start by frying 1 pound of chopped bacon.  Then add the diced onions and garlic.


Saute for about 2-3 minutes more.  Just to soften the onions and garlic.  The aroma is amazing!  Then, drain onto a plate with paper towels.


Shred 2 cups of already cooked chicken breasts.  (About 2 medium sized chicken breasts.)  Set aside with the bacon.

 Add 8 lasagna pasta pieces to a large pot of boiling water.  Cook 2 minutes less than what the instructions on the box say.  Because, it will finish cooking in the oven.


After you drain them, lay them on paper towels to get all the excess water off.

While the pasta is “draining”… start putting together the filling.


In a medium size bowl, stir together the ricotta cheese, cream cheese, sour cream and parmesan.  Stir in salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder.

Now it is time to start assembling the roll ups.


Divide the cheese filling evenly onto each pasta.


Lay the shredded chicken across.  Then sprinkle on the bacon, onion and garlic.


Sprinkle some grated Parmesan and start rolling up!

Have a medium size baking dish ready beside your pasta.


Spread some Parmesan Cream Sauce on the bottom of the baking dish.  By doing this, it gives the pasta enough to just “sit” on and absorb from the bottom (and not just from the top).  Also, prevents the pasta from sticking or burning on the bottom.


Put the lasagna roll ups with the seam side facing down towards the pan.


Add the rest of the cream sauce onto the top of the roll ups.


Sprinkle with some mozzarella and Parmesan and a few more pieces of bacon.

Bake in a preheated 350 degrees oven for 25 to 35 minutes, uncovered.  Allow this dish to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

    Absolute comfort food! I love the idea of making a roll up as opposed to a full lasagna! Alfredo and chicken is a favorite! Can’t wait to try this out on my family Gloria!

    I love your blog! I am planning on making your chicken, bacon, lasagna roll-ups tomorrow. Gatlon spoiled me when he would always bring me your homemade goodies. So here is my question…is there any way I could get the recipe for your caramel apple cookies? Oh my! They are to die for.

    Thanks so sharing. I am so inexperienced with cooking, but I love how you give detailed descriptions along with pictures. So awesome!

    Found your site at midnight and have drooled over it for the past half hour. These look delicious and it’s killing me to not head into the kitchen and make them right now. Love your site!

      Shannon, to be very honest, I have never frozen these before. (I just don’t have the room in my freezer.) But, if you’re wanting to make these ahead of time for dinner…you may assemble it all together at the most 3 days ahead of baking them. Just store them in the refrigerator before putting them in the oven.
      Or you could go ahead and put them into the freezer for up to 6-8 weeks, wrapped very tightly (I use freezer wrap, it cuts out a lot of freezer burn from the air that gets in). Let them thaw before putting into the oven. Reason for that is so it warms up evenly.
      Thank you for stopping by, Shannon! I hope I answered your question…anything else, feel free to ask. Have a great weekend!

    Made this for my daughter and son-in-law who just got back from the hospital with my new granddaughter! Doubled the recipe, one pan for them and one for my husband and myself! The are assembled, wrapped and sitting in the fridge for me to take to them. A cinch to assemble and do they look delish! I will let you know the results but I can tell you my husband (and dogs) were drooling as the aroma of the bacon mixture was wafting through the kitchen =)

    • says

      Jodi, congratulations on your brand new baby granddaughter! I’m so happy for you and your family! (I simply can not even wait to become a gramma, myself.)
      They are going to love this meal when they come home with it all ready for them. You are just so thoughtful to do that for them.
      You know, it’s really hard to stay away from that bacon! I know exactly how your husband feels. I’m actually ready to go wake up my household with some bacon for breakfast right now! Have a great rest of your weekend…and again, congrads on the new teeny tiny new little member of your family!

    My only problem is there wasn’t enough cream sauce leftover for the top I had to make more it was kind of frustrating and it’s quite time consuming if you have a hungry family waiting this dish is delicious but takes about 30-40 minutes prep time + 35 to como I substituted the bacon for turkey bacon and skipped the onions but it was good !

  12. Christy says

    Made the chicken-bacon lasagna recipe last night. This recipe is delicious!! Huge WIN w/ my family. Thank you. 🙂

    • says

      Mary, you may go the shortcut route by using a rotisserie chicken. Or what I do is, put chicken breast (about 3-5 pieces, depending on size) in a pot covered to the top with chicken broth. Boil the chicken for about 20 minutes, covered. Turn off heat and leave on stove with lid on for another 20 minutes. Drain broth and shred chicken. Comes out moist and perfect every time. I love it! This is the only way that I make my chicken for this recipe, enchiladas, etc. You are going to love the lasagna roll ups! Oh, you may make the chicken and bacon ahead of time and set in refrigerator. Have a great weekend! 🙂

  13. says

    This turned out incredible!!! My family and I couldn’t get enough of it! It did however take longer to make than stated on here, but it was totally worth it! Thank you so much for the GREAT recipe!!

  14. Wende says

    Hi Gloria,
    I am hosting a dinner for 8 which includes 4 good-sized hungry men.
    Is one batch enough, or should I make two?
    Can’t wait to make this!

    • says

      Wendi, double this recipe for that many guests… especially feeding those (always!) hungry men. It will come out just as wonderfully. Hope you and your hungry company enjoy! (Psss, you may make this ahead of time or even the night before and cook in oven a little longer than instructed in the recipe.) 🙂

  15. Renee says

    i spent hrs preparing this recipe for a pot luck tonight, was so excited to serve this then realized I forgot the main ingredient, the chicken! So mad at myself! Needless to say, I was too embarrassed to go. Guess I’ll be laughing about it later! LOL

    • says

      Renee, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been distracted and forgot a main ingredient. (Like the egg in cookies… or the banana in banana bread!) But, I bet it was just as delicious without the chicken. (All the cheese and cream sauce is my favorite part anyways!) Hope you are having a most wonderful weekend… even without the chicken! LOL

  16. Kellie says

    These were amazing. I managed to be able to make an additional 4 roll ups and still have left over chicken and sauce. I put the extras in the freezer to use for some pasta later this week! Overall this was an amazing dish! A little labor intensive but definitely worth it. Will make again!


    I was so excited to see this on your blog, I have drooled over many of your very delicious and easy recipes, so I almost passed out when I saw these. I had planned to make the spinach cheese version on, yes I am hanging my head, from another site. I purchased all the basic ingredients and was ready to roll, when the heavens opened up and I found you,yes fabulous GLORIA. Couldn’t make these fast enough, my boys live for chicken and bacon, but they are very picky when it comes to sauce. I read the ingredients and saw the step by step directions and I went for it. Well I can tell you EVERYONE absolutely loved it. You can put this on a rock and people will love it. I felt happy and very accomplished after making this nectar of the gods. Thank you glorious for all your work. Regular moms like me LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU. Anyone not sure about trying this recipe, they make you look like a five star chef.

      Jeannette, thank you so much!! You have truly made my day! I am so happy you and your family loved this chicken and bacon dish. This is definitely a fan favorite here at my house with all my boys. (And, always a request when I have leftover chicken… but I have to hide the bacon if I want any leftover to make this!) Thank you for stopping by with your kind words! 🙂

  18. Emily says

    Do you think the Chicken & Bacon Lasagna Roll Ups would taste ok without the garlic and onions? We aren’t big fans of either garlic/onions… do you think it would still be yummy without it?

  19. Cherry Staff says

    I made these today, added half a bag of chopped baby spinach and 8 oz of chopped fresh white mushrooms to them and also substituted half the parmesan with smoked provolone… it was AMAZING!!!! Definitely my new top company is coming recipe! Thank you for sharing!
    I had a picture I wanted to share of them plated, but no clue how to do that… lol
    I love your site!

    • says

      You are so sweet! Thank you so much for stopping by to share… it sounds absolutely amazing with the spinach and mushrooms. Definitely making it like that next time! 🙂

  20. Carmella says

    You are the Mvp for this recipe ! Omg I loved and so did my little boys who are four and three is hard to get them to eat anything besides norm of pizza! They kicked the plate ! Thanks for this recipe !!

  21. Shannon says

    Hello Gloria,
    I made this tonight and it was good, but I think I messed up on the cream, was I supposed to mix it with the mixer? Sorry I am still new at cooking. But it was still good.

    • says

      You could mix the cream sauce with a whisk as it heats up. This prevents any lumps and turns into creamy deliciousness. Thank you for stopping by and letting us know how this turned out for you! 🙂 (I bet you are a great cook!)
