Chicken Casserole Recipe

Fall’s Best Chicken Casserole

Before I present to you this chicken casserole recipe, I’d like to share with you some good vibes.

I read this quote by Jane Hirshfield, and says, “The heat of autumn is different from the heat of summer. One ripens apples, and the other turns them into cider.” For all cooking enthusiasts out there, I’m sure you can relate. Some see fall as endings. I see it as a transition to new beginnings. Okay, I am getting nostalgic…

I was looking for a unique recipe to welcome the beginning of fall. When I think of fall, I see pumpkins, berries, apples, and veggies. Since the days are warmer, the kitchen beckons us to start cooking stews, casseroles, and soups. During this time, you’ll see a lot of fresh produce from the market before the harvest runs out during winter.

Chicken Casserole Recipe: Savor the Fall Flavors

This chicken casserole recipe used fresh fall flavors such as potatoes, brussels sprouts, cranberries, and fresh thyme. The dish takes a few minutes to prepare then you can just leave it in the oven to cook while you relax.

Delicious Chicken Casserole to Welcome Fall!

I got busy and went on to slice the veggies. What I love about this recipe is that it is a complete meal of protein from the chicken, vegetables, and even wild rice. I don’t even need to make another dish. The only thing that takes time is cutting the veggies. But after that, I just toss everything in a baking dish and cook them in the oven. Oh, and yes you still have to cook the wild rice. Once everything is ready, I just pop them in the oven, tidy up, then watch some TV before lunch or dinner.
