This recipe is inspired by a basic Chicken and Artichoke recipe that I found online, titled Artichoke Chicken Casserole on Allrecipes.com.
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Cube chicken breasts. In a glass baking pan or casserole dish, combine cubed chicken with mushrooms and drained artichokes.
Grate some lemon peel to get lemon zest—you just need a pinch or 2—a little goes a long way. In a small bowl combine lemon zest, garlic, Parmesan cheese and mayonnaise. I added a touch of water to make it a little thinner. Pour the sauce into the baking dish and mix everything together.
Bake in the oven at 350ºF for 30 minutes. Pull it out, stir everything, raise oven temperature to 360ºF and cook an additional 10 minutes. Pull the dish out again to make sure chicken is cooked.
Add bread crumbs on top if desired, put it back in the oven and cook another 5 minutes. Pull it out again, add halved cherry tomatoes on top, and put back in the oven for 3-4 minutes.
Pull the dish out of the oven and let sit a few minutes so the sauce can thicken. Serve with salad.
Now, I am not a casserole kinda gal, but when confronted with a plethora of leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, I will bow to the gods of one-dish meals. I did some research from famous chefs and their versions of tetrazzini and got a good idea of where I needed to focus. Then I raided the refrigerator. My goal was to not have to purchase anything to make this meal, yet make it extremely tasty. This is the outcome.
I love couscous and could eat it in some variation nearly every day. Not everyone in my household feels this way (I won’t mention the “he” who shall be nameless). In an effort to make couscous a little bit “tastier” to some folks, I thought this quick and easy casserole might hit the spot. This would be a great side dish to any meal or if you are going meatless eat this all by itself!
Tacos … check! Chicken … check! Together in a casserole … check, check! Three of my favorite things all wrapped up into one sensational dish. And I do mean sensational. This is one easy and really tasty casserole that I will be making again and again at my house. I hope you love it as much as we do.
