Method
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/Gas 6. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the chicken and brown. Set aside.
  • Add the onion and garlic to the pan and cook for 5 minutes, or until softened. Stir in the oregano, chilli, tomato purée and tomatoes, then return the chicken with any juices and season. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 minutes.
  • For the sauce, melt the spread in a pan, then stir in the flour. Cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently to prevent it sticking and burning to the pan. Remove from the heat and gradually add the milk, making sure there are no lumps. Return to the heat, bring to the boil, then simmer, stirring continuously, for 5 minutes, until the sauce thickens. Remove from the heat, stir in three quarters of the cheese and the mustard, and season.
  • Spoon half the chicken mixture into a small baking dish. Top with 2 lasagne sheets, then the remaining chicken. Top with the last 2 lasagne sheets. Pour over the cheese sauce and scatter over the remaining cheese. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden.
