As we move into the coldest months of the year, it’s time to spend more time in the warm kitchen making comfort food for the family. And what better comfort food is there, we ask, than casseroles? Especially a casserole that is, in and of itself, jam-packed with other comfort foods like potatoes, cheese, and chicken?
Nothing like a good, hot meal to warm the family during the winter months, or to take to a potluck or community celebration. And this fully-loaded casserole recipe isn’t just warm and comforting, it’s a bit on the spicy side too. It’s the perfect meal to come home to after a long day at work, a festive hockey game, or especially playing outside in the snow. It will literally warm the cockles of your heart – and everyone else’s as well!
And speaking of heat, we’ll share one of the best-kept secrets of this baked chicken casserole’s success and that is - baking it at a very high heat. Five hundred degrees Fahrenheit to be exact! Whew. Talk about bringing a midsummer’s midday into the house in December. We’re telling you, this delicious potato and chicken recipe is exactly what the doctor ordered. We can almost smell it sizzling away in the oven as we write. Wow, is it lunch time already? We might have to make a trip to the grocery store to pick up some of the ingredients – or maybe we already have them in the fridge. Let’s check!
Yes, it’s a simple casserole recipe, and truly – you might already have all of the ingredients available in your fridge. And it’s a frugal baked casserole as well, meaning it won’t cost a lot to make – and it will feed a heck of a lot of people. Need something to take to lunch for a week?
