Chicken casserole with bacon and mushrooms in creamy sauce

Mary Berry is the queen of unpretentious cooking and baking. I love their simple recipes and straightforward instructions. This chicken and herb casserole is one of Mary Berry’s favorites!

You can’t go wrong with tender chicken thighs cooked with white wine, bacon, mushrooms and herbs! The final touch, crème fraiche, turns this recipe from a pot into something really special.

Mary Berry’s Chicken Casserole is topped with crispy fried sage leaves that would normally go the extra mile, but they’re not essential!

If you’re following a low-carb/ketogenic diet, be sure to use xanthan gum to thicken the sauce. Serve with pureed cauliflower or celery and steamed vegetables.
