Italian style chicken casserole


    Everytime I serve this dish people want the recipe..... And there is never any leftovers. A simple dish created from bits I had leftover one Sunday evening. Now a firm family favourite. Very tasty & easily amended to suit family taste buds.

    • 500g Chicken breast or thigh
    • 200g chorizo
    • Chicken stock cube (just sprinkled in)
    • Carton of passata
    • 2 tbsp Thyme
    • 2 tbsp Italian seasoning
    • 1 onion ( diced)
    • 3 garlic cloves crushed
    • One red chilli deseeded
    • One can of cannelloni beans
    • 500g gnocchi
    • One tin of chopped tomatoes
    • Olive oil


    1. Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the chicken - cook until the meat is white. Add the stock cube.
    2. Add the onion, garlic & chilli - cook on low heat to ensure they don't crisp.
    3. Once the onion is soften add the tin & carton of tomatoes. Add the seasoning. Bring to the boil & simmer.
    4. Once simmering add the beans and chorizo and simmer with the lid on for at least 40 mins.


    Can also be cooked in a slow cooker - just put all the ingredients in together & cook on low for 8 hours. Serve with crust bread. If looking slightly dry add water to get the texture you desire. The chorizo adds lots of flavours - however add more chilli for a bit more of a kick.

    We love this recipe and a version of it crops up every 8 weeks or so in our weight loss plans now. Its great in Winter but is not too heavy to work all year round. Everytime we do it, we get a lot of great feedback -  -  02 Mar 2014

    Add the gnocchi at the same time as the beans. I hope you like the recipe. X  -  19 Mar 2017
