Ground Chicken Casserole

In an effort to start eating healthier and to try new things we started buying ground chicken a couple years ago. Now, it’s our preferred ground meat. I use it to make a lot of our favorite meals from chili to meatballs to this delicious casserole. We love the taste as well as the lack of greasy taste and feeling that ground beef, even extra lean, often has.

If you are looking for more one dish recipes, why not try one of these?

Ground Chicken Casserole

With the exception of the ground chicken, for us anyways, the rest of the ingredients are staples in our house. 

  • 2 lb ground chicken
  • 5 potatoes, sliced
  • 1 onions, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, pressed or grated
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced
  • 2 cans cream of chicken/celery soup
  • 1 tbsp EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)

In a hot frying pan, drizzle about 1 tbsp of EVOO in it, add diced onion, garlic and ground chicken. The oil will prevent the chicken from sticking and burning to the pan. 

Ground Chicken CasseroleCook until chicken is cooked and browning. Meanwhile slice potatoes and carrots into bit size pieces. Arrange in a baking dish.

Once you have thoroughly cooked the chicken add it to the top of your casserole dish. Pour your cans of cream of chicken or celery soup of the top of you chicken. I actually make my own cream of whatever soup. It has saved me from running out to the store at the last minute quite often and it is much cheaper as well.

Bake it for 45-60 minutes depending on the thickness of your vegetables, at 350°F. The sauce will be bubbling and have run down into the vegetables in the bottom. 

 

Ground Chicken CasseroleEveryone loves this dish, even my most picky eater. It is quite simple, easy, and it doesn’t have to cost that much. This can be pretty versatile dish. If your family is a big on eating a lot of vegetables, and your lucky enough to not have picky eaters like me, you can easily add more including mushrooms, turnip, and zucchini.  

I hope that you and your family enjoy this as much as we all did.
