  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2 tsp black pepper

  • 1 large onion

  • 1 chicken stock cube

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 500g new potatoes (large potatoes also are fine, just chop up small)

  • 2 carrot large; cut into batons

  • 150g plain flour

  • 2 handfuls fresh mixed herbs

  • 750g chicken thigh (7-8 thighs)


  1. Chop the mushrooms, onion and garlic.
  2. On the hob, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed ovenproof casserole pot.
  3. Fry the onion until soft.
  4. Add mushrooms and garlic and fry for 2 minutes.
  5. Remove onion and mushrooms to a plate.
  6. Mix the flour with the black pepper and salt to create seasoned flour.
  7. Chop the chicken and coat the chicken pieces with the flour.
  8. Heat 1 tbsp oil in the pot and add the chicken until brown.
  9. Make the chicken stock. Add half the stock to the pot.
  10. Add the cooked onions, mushrooms, carrots (cut into batons), potatoes and herbs.
  11. Add the other half of the stock and bring the liquid back to the boil, cover with casserole lid.
  12. Either turn down heat on hob to a simmer or put in oven at 180C, for 40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.

Handy Hint

Mix and match the veg and seasoning ingredients. A spot of lemon adds freshness (but not too much or it can taste bitter).

Serve with beans or broccoli if you want some greenery.

For a change leave out the new potatoes and serve with mash instead.

Add 5 tbsp of white wine after step 9 when serving to adults, for added flavour.

    This was really tasty and easy. Usually my casseroles are a bit watery and tasteless, but this was yum!

    Rustic comfort food which can be adapted to the ingredients you have. Takes little time to prepare and will happily sit in the oven or on the hob on a low heat whilst you get on with other things or entertain your guests. Leftovers heat up well too.
