Frequently Asked Questions about this creamy white chicken lasagna
Can I substitute mozzarella for the Cheddar?
Absolutely. But this recipe is so good as-is, I would recommend substituting in only 1 cup mozzarella cheese and using 1 cup of Cheddar. The Cheddar really adds a depth of flavor you don’t get from mozzarella.

1/2 tsp. kosher salt
