Are you ready for another delicious one pan chicken meal? I know I am. We do eat a lot of chicken in this house, but that is totally because it is economical, adaptable and delicious. It never gets really boring. I would love to eat more beef or lamb, but in all honesty, it's not within my budget except for on very rare occasions these days.
You are going to love this casserole. Truly. It is simple and easy to do and uses things I am betting you have in your kitchen right now!
Cooked chicken. You can use leftovers from your Sunday Roast, or quite simply poach some boneless skinless chicken breasts. I picked up a pack locally, for less than a fiver . . . which had four really large and meaty pieces of chicken in it. I poached them in some lightly salted water.
Just bring it to the boil, then simmer for about 10 minutes and then I let it cool down in the water until I can just handle it by hand. End result. Perfectly moist and tender chicken breast meat. I used two, shredded, for this recipe . . . and I have two more chilling in the refrigerator for another recipe another day.
Two baking potatoes sliced thinly, along with some frozen peas, a delicious cream sauce and some crispy salad onions . . . and that's all you need.
Put together in just the right way, you end up with a truly delicious casserole that will have everyone scrambling for just a tiny bit more. The recipe serves 6, but I just know people will want seconds to plan on using it for four. I do hope you will make it and that you will enjoy it as much as we do.
Crispy, buttery potatoes, layered just right with moist chicken and a deliciously creamy sauce and peas. What more could you want? A nice chopped salad on the side and some crusty bread perhaps. Enjoy!

I hope you have been admiring my new table runner and salad bowl. Aren't they just beautiful? I got them from a really nice site Gundrun Sjoden. This is a Swedish brand of housewares, fashions, soft furnishings and textiles which have been around for about 30 years, having just recently opened their first store in London along with an online shop.
Gundrun is the design force behind the brand and runs it with a strong eco-conscience. She uses Mondays and Tuesdays to paint, creating original patterns and prints every season. (You can buy fabrics by the meter so that you can sew your own goodies as well!)
Everything is sustainable and environmentally sound, and really attractive. Environmentally friendly, ecologically sound, organic, pretty to look at . . . I don't know what more you could ask for. I think it is all beautiful. To find out more about the label and their practices check it out here. To go shopping, click here.
Many thanks to Gundrun Sjoden for sending me these lovely bits and bobs.
