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.

Add white wine, chicken broth, sage and bay leaves. Add the chicken thighs. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove the lid and continue cooking for another 10 minutes.
Add the fresh cream and sprinkle with xanthan gum (or add some diluted cornmeal) if the sauce needs to thicken. Simmer for a minute or so.
Discard the bay leaves. Check the seasoning and serve with mashed potatoes or cauliflower puree for a Keto option. SO delicious!
