Simple chicken casserole


  • Suitable quantity of chicken - I used a generous leg; choose breast if you prefer

  • 1 large carrot, cut into discs

  • 1 large parsnip, cut into discs

  • 1 leek, cut into discs

  • 1 medium onion, roughly chopped

  • Couple of bay leaves

  • Freshly chopped parsley & coriander

  • Freshly ground S&P

  • 500mls chicken stock


  1. Butter inside of the casserole dish, and arrange chicken meat

  2. Sprinkle over the carrot and parsnip, the bay leaves, the leek and the onion

  3. Season with S&P and add the chopped herbs

  4. Add the chicken stock - enough to fill the dish roughly to 2/3rds.

  5. Cover, and place in the oven at about 160C for two hours.


I used a generously sized chicken leg - just about enough to feed two or do two meals for one. Use more chicken and increase the other ingredient quantities if you're super hungry / feeding more than two.

Be sure your chicken is free range organic, or at least RSPCA monitored!
