chicken-and-artichoke lasagna... 1 hour

the goods:
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 stalks celery, sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 yellow onion, diced medium
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 and 1/2 cups chicken broth
3 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 and 1/2 cups roughly chopped marinated artichoke hearts, divided, plus 1 tablespoon marinade
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
6 no-boil lasagna noodles
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a saucepan, melt butter over medium. Add celery and onion; cook until translucent, 5 minutes. Stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Increase heat and slowly stir in broth. Bring to a boil, stirring, and cook until liquid thickens, 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in chicken and 1/2 cup artichokes; season with salt and pepper. Mix breadcrumbs with marinade; season with salt and pepper.

Spread 1/2 cup chicken mixture in a 2-quart baking dish. Top with 2 noodles and 1 and 1/2 cups chicken mixture; repeat. Top with remaining 2 noodles, chicken mixture, and 1 cup artichokes, then scatter breadcrumbs on top. Bake until top is deep golden brown, 30 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes.
