Chicken and vegetable layer
Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat and sauté the onion and garlic until soft. Add the tomato paste, herbs, chutney, stock, salt and pepper and simmer until the mixture is fragrant. Add the chicken and vegetables and heat through. Adjust the seasoning and set aside. Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Grease a rectangular ovenproof dish.
Cheese Sauce
Heat the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and stir-fry for 1 minute. Gradually add the milk while stirring continuously. Simmer gently for 2 minutes until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper and stir in Cheddar cheese.
To Complete
Pour a thin layer of cheese sauce (about 180 ml) in the bottom of the prepared dish. Arrange a layer of lasagne sheets on the sauce and spoon half the chicken mixture on top. Repeat the layers of cheese sauce, lasagne sheets and chicken mixture once more. Finish with a layer of lasagne sheets and spoon the remaining cheese sauce on top. Scatter the Parmesan or pecorino cheese on top and bake for 30 to 34 minutes or until golden brown. Leave tostand for 10 to 15 minutes before cutting into portions. Garnish with fresh oregano and serve with a fresh salad if desired.
