Helen’s Home Cooking Video and Recipe for Creamy Chicken Lasagne

This recipe I made for the first time as I was videoing it; which it has to be said was a little daunting, however not only did it work and turned out to be delicious; it also had enough left over to have with Spaghetti the following night. A great value for money meal which ultimately shall feed eight people.
