The Crusty Chicken Casserole is a family classic, and one of those traditional recipes you pass down the generations. Each person has their own version of the dish and this was one was definitely inspired by my mum.



Ingredients, Chicken, Vegetables, Chopped


This dish is for those who enjoy a hearty, filling dish by combining meat and vegetables, making it a perfect dish for the whole family.

To make this dish, it requires two parts. The filling and a classic cheese batter to put on top, which can be used for any other dish to add a tasty topping. This dish is best served with steamed vegetables and is suitable to freeze, or prepared a day before hand and reheated. It is not suitable to microwave.

Preparation Time: 15-30 minutes
Cooking Time: 40-45 minutes

1 whole barbecued or steamed chicken
