Crafting Your Culinary Masterpiece

Let’s embark on a journey to culinary excellence with these simple steps:


  1. Preheat and Prepare: Begin by preheating your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius). Then, lightly coat a medium-sized baking dish with olive oil, ensuring effortless release and a golden finish.
  2. Marinate and Coat: In a large mixing bowl, combine the lemon juice, zest, olive oil, minced garlic, thyme, rosemary, paprika, salt, and pepper. Toss in the diced potatoes and chicken pieces, ensuring each morsel is coated with the aromatic herb mixture.
  3. Arrange and Layer: Transfer the marinated chicken and potatoes into the prepared baking dish, ensuring an even distribution for optimal cooking.
  4. Infuse and Cover: Pour the chicken broth and heavy cream over the potatoes and chicken, gently shaking the dish to settle the liquids. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over the top and cover the dish with aluminum foil, sealing in the flavors.
  5. Bake and Uncover: Place the covered casserole in the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes until the potatoes are tender and the chicken is cooked through. Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 20 to 25 minutes, allowing the top to achieve a delightful golden hue.
  6. Rest and Serve: Once out of the oven, let the casserole sit for a few minutes to settle. Optionally, garnish with freshly chopped parsley for a burst of color and flavor. Serve warm and watch as your loved ones delight in every bite.
