An easy casserole dish that'll feed the family. A hint of cider and apple give it extra flavour. This delicious chicken casserole is a brilliant go to meal if you want a hearty dinner that will feed the whole family and tastes really great. Plus, as this recipe uses carrots, celery and an apple it contains lots of vitamins and minerals to help the family on their way to achieving their five-a-day. Whatís more, this casserole recipe is super quick to make and doesnít take too much prep Ė itís just a case of frying some of the ingredients and then popping it all into a casserole dish and into the oven. Itís a really cost effective way of feeding four people this week.

Interesting recipe - decided to try it and it's in the oven... what comes out will be interesting as the recipe is NOT clear. For instance item 2 says "Transfer [chicken] to a casserole dish with the new potatoes, add celery and carrots to the pan.." Does this mean the potatoes go with the chicken? I assume so but it might have been a good idea to say "a large frying pan" as it gets a bit crowded with vegs and cider... I'll let you know what happens with my version... might even tell you what I did!!

This is an amazing recipe, I made it for our tea this evening. It comfortably fed the four of us with a large side portion of vegetables and with a little tinkering it is only 4.5 Weightwatchers points!!!! Wonderful, thank you, :-)
