One of the benefits of chicken casserole recipes is not only to have a delicious meal but also select a blend of ingredients and a method of cooking that will effectively cook themselves, without much intervention from the cook. This means there's a much greater emphasis on the quality and blend of the ingredients rather than the skill of the cook. The technique is different to a pot roast or even a chicken stew. Usually full of flavour and warming, the quality of the casserole is usually revealed by the bouquet as much as the taste. All the successful recipes are stored in the Recipe Directory.
You can adapt the recipe for vegetarians by substituting quorn pieces instead of chicken or even by simply adding a few boiled potatoes (more details below).

"This is probably the best and simplest chicken casserole I've made."
There are a wide range of ways to make chicken casserole, they vary according to national and even regional preferences, most good cooks will have their own tried and trusted chicken casserole dish. I think of chicken casserole as a warm and filling meal with all the taste and goodness of root vegetables, this is the basis for this recipe.
You can however use a wide range of produce according to your own preference to give the dish a more spring/summer feel. For example add washed baby spinach, fresh chives or pak choi and stir in a few minutes before the dish is ready to come from the oven. For an even healthier chicken casserole omit the bacon from this recipe and reduce the vegetable oil to the bare minimum. For a vegetarian casserole you can replace the meat with a substitute like bean curd or quorn.

Your Comments Do Matter
"I appreciate your attempts to 'convert' traditional meat recipes into vegetarian alternatives but it kind of makes us veggies feel a bit like second class consumers of your information. I mean why not have a great pumpkin casserole recipe that could be converted for meat eaters. Sam"
