Take pleasure in making a delicious Chicken Casserole full of herbs, mushrooms, bacon, and a sauce so creamy it will melt in your mouth. This recipe is delicious and an excellent choice for people on a ketogenic or low-carb diet.

The great thing about this Chicken and Herb Casserole recipe is that it is simple to make and tastes great. This dish is about cooking soft chicken legs in white wine with smoky bacon, earthy mushrooms, and fragrant herbs. Adding creme fraiche to the food turns it into a velvety experience. This is the crowning glory of this one-pot wonder.

You could add crispy fried sage leaves to the dish as a garnish if you want to take it to the next level, but this is totally up to you.

People on a ketogenic or low-carb diet can use a tiny bit of xanthan gum to thicken the sauce. You can make a healthy and well-balanced dinner by serving this dish with steamed veggies and mashed cauliflower or celeriac on the side.

You’ll need the following things to make this dish realistic:

  • Bone-in and skin-on chicken thighs taste the best, but boneless and skinless chicken thighs are also great.
  • Our Smoked Streaky Bacon is the best pick if you want to add more flavor.
  • Onions and garlic are the aromatic ingredients that strengthen the primary tastes.
  • You can choose chestnut or small white button mushrooms to give your dish a quaint, country feel.
  • Certain types of white wine, like Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris, are dry and help improve the general flavor.
  • A cube makes it easy to make chicken stock, which is helpful for the customer.
  • Creaminess-wise, creme fraiche or thick double cream will give you a rich and smooth body.
  • Depending on your dietary needs, you can use either cornflour or xanthan gum to thicken this dish.
  • Herbs like fresh sage leaves, dried thyme, and bay leaves give the dish a pleasant smell and feel.

The intelligent people who changed the method added the choice of cooking on the stove or partially in the oven to make the cooking process easier. There are now more options available. This flexibility, the dish’s complex flavors, and its ability to work with various diets make it something every home cook should try.
