Casseroles are a great meal idea, especially when they taste this good! This Easy Lemon Chicken Potato Casserole is simple to make and comes out tasting like you spent all day making it! This creamy casserole is filled with soft potatoes, chicken, and delicious flavoring.
The onions are a great addition and are my favorite part of this recipe! The whole dish comes out with a golden brown layer on top. I like to garnish this with a bit of parsley and it’s pretty enough to bring to parties or make for family dinners.
The lemon definitely adds the perfect touch to this dish! Make sure to pull the slices out though! It wouldn’t be fun biting into one of those. Try this perfect creamy casserole for your next dinner party or family gathering. Everyone will love it!
Cook Temp: 425 Degrees F – Cooking Time: 60 Minutes
2.5 cups condensed cream of mushroom OR cream of chicken soup (the equivalent of 2 cans)
1/2 cup milk
1.5 lbs. Yukon gold potatoes, very thinly sliced (no thicker than 1/8″)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small white onion, peeled and thinly sliced
1.5 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt and freshly-ground black pepper
1 lemon, thinly sliced and halved (into half coins)
(optional garnish: chopped fresh parsley or fresh thyme)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Add condensed soup and milk to a saucepan and whisk to combine. Heat over medium-high heat until simmering, stirring frequently. When it reaches a simmer, remove from heat and set aside.
Meanwhile, in a separate large mixing bowl, add potatoes, onion, garlic, and chicken. Pour in the condensed soup mixture, along with a generous pinch of salt and pepper, and gently toss to combine until the potato and chicken mixture is evenly coated.
Transfer mixture to a 9 x 13 baking dish. Tuck lemon wedges into the mixture randomly. Then cover the top of the pan with aluminum foil.
Bake for 1 hour or until the potatoes are tender. Carefully remove the foil, and change oven to the high “broil” setting. Broil the casserole for an extra 2-3 minutes to crisp up the top, watching very carefully so that it does not burn.
Remove pan from oven and serve warm.
