One of the best parts about spring is the increased enthusiasm for using healthier, more vibrant products in cooking. My Spring Veggie Loaded Potato and Chicken Casserole is perfect for that occasion. It’s a warm and hearty meal that’s full of the season’s fresh flavors. This dish is the ideal combination of heavy ingredients like potatoes and chicken with lighter ones like spring veggies; it’s great for weekday dinners or a warm weekend dinner. This is the perfect recipe to welcome fall while still indulging in your favorite comfort foods.
A simple green salad with vinaigrette adds a fresh, crisp element to this rich dish, which is already rather satisfying on its own. Serve it with some crusty bread for dipping into the creamy sauce for a heartier dinner. After that, a refreshing lemon sorbet would be the ideal dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Six servings of a spring vegetable-loaded chicken potato casserole
Recipe Items
olive oil, 2 tablespoons
1 pound of diced chicken breasts, 3 cups of peeled and cubed potatoes, 1 big onion, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1 cup of sliced carrots, 1 cup of chopped asparagus, and 1 cup of peas
100 grams of broccoli florets
dried thyme, 1 teaspoon
1/4 teaspoon of salt
one-half teaspoon of black pepper
1/4 cup of white flour
chicken broth, 2 cups
one cup of milk
The amount of grated cheddar cheese needed is 1/2 cup.
How to Follow
Turn the oven on high heat (400°F, 200°C).
2. In a big skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Toss in the diced chicken and heat until it’s browned and done. Cut chicken into pieces and put aside.
3. Toss in the potatoes, garlic, and onion in the same pan. Keep sautéing until the potatoes begin to soften and the onions become transparent.
4. Add the broccoli, peas, carrots, and asparagus; stir to combine. Add another 5 minutes of cooking time.
5. Season the veggies with pepper, salt, thyme, and flour. Toss the veggies in the flour mixture and stir until well distributed.
6. While whisking constantly, slowly pour in the chicken broth and milk, allowing the sauce to thicken.
Step7: Put the chicken back in the pan. Blend all the ingredients together by stirring.
8. Pour the mixture into a baking dish that has been buttered and top with shredded cheddar cheese.
9. Put it in the prepared oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the top starts to bubble and become brown.
10. Allow it to cool somewhat before serving.
Changes and Hints
You can make this dish with less fat by using low-fat milk and whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour. You may also add bell peppers and zucchini if you like them, or any other spring veggies you happen to have on hand. For those who want a crunchier topping, combine breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese and then scatter it over the dish before baking.
