chicken potato casserole-I serve this Chicken Potato Casserole to my family when we are under the weather. It hardly takes time to prepare and it is light on your stomach too. chicken casserole 2What I like about this casserole is not only the simplicity but also the different flavors coming from its ingredients. The sweetness of the onion combined with the creamy texture the garlic takes after it’s cooked is just so soothing, along with the soft potatoes which have absorbed the seasoning and aroma.

    I saw on the video that you appear to add salt on the chicken pieces as well as on the orange juice mixture. Is this correct?

      My real question is: how much salt for the chicken pieces and how much for the orange juice?

        Seasoning the chicken with salt depends on your taste, a teaspoon of salt might be enough for me but too much for others. As for the orange mixture it was a pinch of salt (around half teaspoon). Hope this answers your question, and thanks for checking out my blog :)
