The perfect Chicken Casserole



I don’t know about you but these chilly nights have me craving a lot of comfort food (and by that I mean takeaways!) the thing about that is, they taste great in the moment but you really start to feel lethargic and bloated after eating too many stodgy dinners! When Schwartz asked if I’d like to try out their chicken casserole mix I said yes straight away, something warming and comforting packed full of goodness? Sign me up!

The Schwartz Chicken Casserole mix is made up of rosemary, garlic, sage and oregano and is designed to be as fuss free as possible making it perfect for quick, nutritious dinners.

The pack does come with some recipe instructions but I added my own spin on them and it was heavenly!


My Perfect Chicken Casserole Recipe


4 x chicken breasts (or thighs if you prefer)
1 x whole onion (sliced)
1 x leek (roughly chopped)
2 x carrots (peeled and chopped)
1 x tbsp of oil
300ml or 1/2 pint of cold water

Preheat your oven to 180°C, 350°F, Gas Mark 4.

Heat the oil in a large pan and add the vegetables until soft.

Add in the chicken and brown on each side for a few minutes.

Transfer the pan contents to a casserole dish.

Add the casserole mix to the 300 ml of water and pour over the chicken and vegetables.

Cover the dish and place in the oven for 1 hour

Serve with crusty bread (and/or crispy topped potatoes)


I’m already a big fan of Schwartz spices, we get through ground garlic, flat leaf parsley and their garlic Italian mix at an alarming rate in our house, but this one was a revelation, a beautiful light gravy style sauce, that was comforting but not heavy and packed with flavour. I really do love a pre mixed spice pack, it takes the hassle out of making your own sauces and makes a really affordable and nutritious meal for the whole family. I’ve already added a few more to my weekly shop, I am especially excited to try the christmas vegetable mixes (the sticky glazed root vegetables look amazing!)

You can purchase the Schwartz Chicken Casserole mix from Tesco for 85p here.
