Once a fortnight regular

Hot Chicken Casserole

  • 2 large potatoes
  • big swish of olive oil
  • big knob of butter
  • 1 pack of chicken leg and thighs
  • 1/2 pack of cherry tomatoes
  • hand full of olives
  • 1 red onion
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 2 small hot chillies

I’ve been doing this recipe regularly for about a year now. It’s reliable, its easy, it gets the job done. I reckon it could even impress guests. It will never tire. I walk down the aisle in Sainsbury, see the £3 pack of chicken leg + thigh and I know thats 3-4 meals sorted.Without sounding too big headed, I’ve got a bit picky with my meals since doing the blog, so you take some comfort in the fact thats its on my regular list.

I think I have to admit the original version was stolen from ‘ bit of this bit of that’ Jamie. I can admit it, I put my hands up, I steal and manipulate.


  • Could use a variety of other hot items instead of chillies, jalapenos go well
  • If using a casserole dish i’d cover with tin foil to keep the moisture in


  1. Preheat oven to 180c
  2. Chop the potatoes into quarters or sixths and boil for 10min.
  3. Pour some oil into a pan with some salt+pepper. Cook the chicken for a few minutes till its got a nice crispy brown colour on the skin
  4. Add the potato and chicken to a big pan or casserole dish
  5. Ruffly chop the garlic
  6. Cut half the tomatoes in half
  7. Chop the onion up into strips
  8. Finely chop the chilli
  9. Add all to the pan
  10. Add a big knob of butter and a large swish of olive oil
  11. Stir the whole lot with a wooden spoon until well mixed
  12. Put in the oven for 1 hour
