Chicken & Potato Casserole

DSCN3821One day this week, we invited our neighbor over for dinner. I made this Chicken & Potato casserole and it was a big hit! The potatoes and veggies become so tender and almost melt in your mouth, the chicken becomes so juicy, the mayo becomes fluffy and creamy, and this yummyness is topped with a bunch of shredded mozzarella cheese, baked to perfection. That’s right, I bet you are drooling at this point, but for good reason. Despite how gorgeous it looks, it is actually very easy to make! It is a great dish to make ahead. I love making it for dinner guests or on busy weeknights because you throw it together, it bakes for 2 hours and out comes a fresh, hot, filling, tasty casserole. I created this recipe myself by putting a bunch of different ingredients together and I am proud to take full credit for this recipe, because it really is one of my best creations yet!

Chicken & Potato Casserole {Serves 7-8}

Ingredients:

  • 2.5 LB Gold Potatoes
  • 8-9 Chicken Thighs
  • 3 Carrots
  • 1 Onion
  • Mayonnaise (About 1 cup)
  • 1 LB Mozzarella Cheese (Shredded)
  • Salt/Pepper
  • Montreal Chicken Seasoning
  • Mrs.Dash Original Seasoning

DSCN3781Directions: 

1) Do the prep work first. Wash but do not peel the potatoes and carrots. Peel the onion. Using a Mandolin slicer slice the potatoes, carrots, and onion into thin circles and keep in separate bowls. Add some salt and pepper to the bowl with sliced potatoes and mix it well.

2) Wash the chicken thighs. One by one, lay out the chicken thighs on a cutting board and beat on both sides using a meat tenderizer hammer. Sprinkle salt on both sides of each chicken thigh, and sprinkle a little pepper and Montreal Chicken Seasoning on only one side of each chicken thigh. Set aside in a bowl.

3) Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees. Get a glass dish and start putting your casserole together. Start off by putting one layer off potatoes, then overlap the gaps with another layer of potatoes. Then put a layer of carrots over the potatoes. Make a layer of onion over the carrots. Put a few tablespoons of Mayonnaise over these layers.

4) Then put a layer of the Chicken thighs over the mayonnaise and put another, thicker, layer of mayonnaise over the chicken thighs. Put a layer of potatoes over the mayonnaise. Then a layer of carrots. Then a last layer of onions. Sprinkle the top with Mrs.Dash Original seasoning. Cover with foil and bake in the oven at 350 Degrees for 2 hours.

5) When there is 30 minutes of baking time left, get the casserole out of the oven and put half of the shredded cheese. Return to the oven, uncovered.

6)In the last 15 minutes, add the other half of cheese to the casserole and stick it back in the oven for the last 15 minutes, uncovered. Serve hot in the glass tray. Just cut into squares with a big knife, and serve using a big spatula. This dish reheats well. Just warm it up in the oven for 20 minutes.
