LEMON CHICKEN POTATO CASSEROLE — Sliced Yukon Gold potatoes, chunks of tender chicken and lemon wedges, baked in a creamy sauce.
This Lemon Chicken Potato Casserole is the epitome of comfort food. And it’s so easy to put together!
This casserole has just the right amount of lemon flavor, and the chicken is tender and juicy. Plus, my kids raved about it, which is a big bonus! There’s nothing better than an easy meal that the whole family loves.
I have made this many times for my house. My 3 year old picky eater granddaughter loves it all, even the cooked lemon. My 87 year old father wants it once a week. My 2 other granddaughters 9, and 12 years of age, love it. ~ Scott
I like a saucy casserole, but if you don’t, consider reducing the cream (or half and half) by a quarter cup.
The Yukon Gold potatoes really are perfect in this dish–the color really compliments the lemon–but you could certainly substitute another variety, like Russets, and this dish would be just as tasty.
And the fresh parsley garnish really is a wonderful accompaniment to the lemon. This casserole will definitely be making a regular appearance on our dinner menu.
