One Pot French Chicken Casserole

If you love French food and don’t have the time to cook it then this French chicken casserole recipe is for you. So very simple to make.

What I love it is not heavy so it can be an all-season dish, serve with green beans or salad.

I used my Le Creuset Shallow Casserole to make this and slowed the process by cooking in a slow oven for about 2 hours.

    This dish is very simple to make and not as rich as other chicken dishes I have made that are French.
