Mushroom Chicken Casserole

I have been meaning to blog about this dish all week, but could not find the time to. Had a such a hectic week, and today I was supposed to go for strawberry picking and have lunch with friends, but that was “cancelled”. So here I am blogging, I guess this was a blessing in disguise for my blog readers😅. Now that is out of the way, let me tell you about this dish.

This Mushroom Chicken Casserole is one of the easiest dishes to make, and it tastes so delicious. I love mushrooms, and I thought I should add them this time around in my chicken casserole, and I could not be happier with the results. The chicken was tender and juicy, the sauce creamy with a hint of chilli and paprika from the Cajun spice. I served the meal with brown rice and green beans. Although I used wine in the chicken, I am aware that some of my readers do not like this option due to various reasons. So, if you are going to be serving this meal for kids, I suggest you replace wine with a chicken stock. Hope you will enjoy this meal like we did💕

Serves: 2 to 4

4 Chicken Pieces

2 Medium Red-Skinned Potatoes

  7. Transfer the mushrooms to the baking pan with potatoes and chicken, and scatter it around.
  8. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, remove the foil and continue baking for 20 minutes (please see note).
  9. Remove the casserole from the oven and let it stand for at least 10 minutes before serving.
  10. Serve with rice and vegetables.
