So, my daughter-in-law served this awesome dish and I was like, ‘I need this recipe, pronto!’

The rustic charm of home cooking meets the refined elegance of a well-balanced dinner in this satisfying Asparagus & Bacon Chicken Potato Casserole. Cauliflower has several roots, but it has long been a staple of American Midwestern cooking. The combination of meat, veggies, and grains makes it a one-dish miracle that even the busiest city resident can make at home. This multi-textured and flavorful meal is perfect for family gatherings or as a show-stopping addition to a potluck since it celebrates spring asparagus and the ever-popular combination of bacon and chicken.

A refreshing green salad would go wonderfully with this savory casserole, helping to balance off the dish’s richness. A serving of chilled tzatziki or a vinegar dressing would provide a tart contrast. For those who appreciate fine wine, a crisp glass of Chardonnay or a delicate Pinot Noir can take any dish to the next level.

Chicken Potato Casserole with Bacon and Asparagus – 4 skinless, boneless breasts of chicken

Ingredients needed:

1 pound of fresh asparagus, peeled and sliced into 1-inch pieces; 6 chopped slices of bacon; 3 cups of diced potatoes (approximately 1/2-inch cubes) 1 big onion, diced 2 minced cloves of garlic;

– 2 tablespoons of olive oil – 1 cup of heavy cream – 1 cup of chicken broth – 1 teaspoon of fresh thyme leaves – 1/2 teaspoon of paprika – 1 cup of shredded strong cheddar cheese – Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

How to Follow

1. Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish and set the oven to 375°F, which is 190°C.

2. Fry the bacon until it’s crispy in a big pan set over medium heat. Remove bacon from pan and set aside to drain on a paper towel-lined dish.

3. Saute the chopped onion in the pan until it becomes tender. Sauté the garlic for one more minute, or until it begins to release its aroma.

Step4: Set aside the garlic and onion, raise the heat to medium-high, and throw in the chicken breasts. Add paprika, pepper, and salt to taste. Get a beautiful brown crust by searing both sides for three to four minutes.

Cut the chicken into strips after taking it out of the pan. Toss in the diced potatoes and simmer in the same pan for approximately 5 minutes, or until they begin to soften.

In the baking dish that you made before, layer half of the potatoes. Arrange the asparagus spears on top, followed by the bacon and seared chicken strips.

Pour the heavy cream, chicken stock, and thyme combination over the ingredients in the baking dish after combining them in a basin.

8. Cover and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling and the top turns golden brown. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.

9. The sauce will thicken significantly if you let the dish sit for approximately 5 minutes before serving.
