Chicken Feta Casserole
If you are a garlic fan, you’ll love the spicy aroma of your kitchen while this is baking in the oven. It makes my mouth water every time. I shared this with some friends last week, and one loved this chicken casserole recipe so much she made it first as written and then with shrimp the next night. I hope you’ll find it just as enticing.
Easy Chicken Casserole Recipe
I meet up with a fun group of moms a few times a year. When our boys were in elementary school, we’d get together to play euchre, but it morphed into dinner out as they graduated high school and now college. One night we exchanged easy dinner recipes. I handed out my pasta with a quick sausage sauce and took home a stack of recipe cards which included this marvelous dish.
There are a few pans involved and some chopping and simmering, but nothing complicated. Garlic, dried oregano and fresh basil amp up the tomato sauce while some red pepper flakes give the chicken some zing. Crumbled feta provides a creamy richness along with a subtle saltiness. All these flavors marry to make one amazing entree. I’ve served on both rice and pasta, to rave reviews. Use whatever your family prefers. I know they’ll love this chicken feta casserole!
