Pierogi Chicken Lasagna- Quick and easy weeknight dinner.

After 2 days of school, Mr.B came home with a cold. In the matter of days, we all had it, though it seems to have hit me the hardest. Hubby, Mr.B and I had to attend a teacher's night at his school, so I was looking for something easy to make, for my mother in law and Queenie. With a bad back, I knew that my mother in law could not stand at the stove and cook, so I needed something that was quick to put together and easy to cook. I had seen someone mention this recipe on Cooking for your Family and thought it was right up my alley. I was super psyched that it only took 5 minutes to throw together. The most time consuming part was chopping the chicken. The house smelled great when we returned home, Queenie had devoured her dinner and the boys had no problem finishing off the dish. I only tried a bite, since my throat felt like I had swallowed nails. Despite the excrutiating pain, it was delicious, LOL. The creaminess of the pierogies went well with the pasta sauce and cheese. I'm definately keeping this one in my what should I make when I'm not feeling well file.

What's a pierogi? I know it's something Polish but I don't know what it is exactly. Are they available down south? :) We know you have special mayo up there so something's might be restricted to your Canadian audiences. *lol*

Pierogies are pasta stuffed with potatoes and cheese. I know Kroger sells them, by the frozen french fries. We were so excited to see pierogies down there, LOL.
