Lemon Chicken Casserole Recipe

Fragrant and Succulent Casserole Chicken Breasts

Striclty speaking I think this Lemon Chicken Casserole Recipe is actualy a stew because it is cooked on the stove top and not in the oven.

Nonetheless it makes a great chicken recipe and a tasty dinner idea especially for a cold winter's evening when you have hungry guests to feed. The lemon is a perfect compliment to the chicken meat and the beans make it hearty and filling.

Another great thing about lemon juice is that the acid makes it act as a slight tenderiser even though chicken meat is generally quite a tender meat.

Place all the chicken and onion in the pan and then add the potatos, garlic, lemon, white wine, chicken stock and thyme sprigs. Reduce the heat, cover the pan and let the casserole simmer for about 45 minutes.

Remove the lid and add the beans. Cook for another 15 minutes or until the chicken is tender and comes away from the bone easily. The liquid should also have thickened slightly.
