Chicken casserole

Filling and warming


Like most casseroles, everyone has their own favourite recipe, but if you are a beginner try this simple one which you can cook on the stove rather than in the oven.


Ingredients - Serves 4 Adults

  • 8 chicken thighs, skin and bone removed (or 4 chicken legs, skin removed)
  • 1 tablespoon plain flour

  • 850ml / 1½ pint chicken stock
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped 
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and chopped 
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 stick of celery, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 sprig of thyme
  • 1 bunch of parsley, 1 sprig for the pot and then enough to make 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot and when it is hot, quickly brown the chicken thighs on all sides, about 30 seconds per side
  2. Remove the browned chicken and set it aside for a few minutes
  3. Add the chopped onion to the oil and cook it until it starts to soften
  4. Add the chopped or minced garlic and cook for about 2 minutes
