Rustic Chicken Casserole

Full of bright fresh flavours, this Rustic Chicken Casserole is a one-pot clever recipe that allows each flavour to shine. It is a great meal all year round that gives you true food comfort in less than 45 minutes. Flavourful chicken, fresh vegetables and a pop of pesto flavour is what it's all about!

Helpful Tips:
  • Chicken - If you prefer to use leaner chicken pieces, then this will go well with chicken breast or if you like pieces with the bone in, then drumsticks work well too (you may need to cook it a little longer with drumsticks).

  • Beans - If you are not a fan of chickpeas, then use any white beans. I personally love black eye beans or cannellini beans.

  • Vegetables - You can replace broccolini with broccoli florets or even cauliflower florets. It will change the flavour but that is all part of the fun of experimenting with flavours!

  • Serve alongside - We love this meal with country bread but it goes perfectly well with rice and even spiral pasta.

  • Make sure you use a large and wide base pot that will allow space for the vegetables once you have fried off the chicken.

And now it’s time to start cooking! As always, if you make any of my recipes, I would love to hear your feedback. Don’t forget to save it on your Pinterest board as well! I have a board named CreateCookShare that you can follow and save. Can’t wait to hear from you.
