This easy Lemon Chicken Piccata Casserole is a wonderful change from our classic chicken piccata recipe. An all in one dish including potatoes makes this an easy meal to serve to a crowd, with the classic flavors of lemon in the forefront.
Picatta originally comes from Italy, and there are quite a few variations, including those made with fish or veal, but our family prefers to use chicken.
We love simple casseroles to help stretch our favorite meals further.
Lemon Chicken Piccata has a unique flavor that everyone in our family loves, but the addition of the thinly sliced potatoes in this casserole makes it a perfect choice for me to prep in advance, pop into the oven, and enjoy with my family after a long day.
This casserole features many things we keep on hand all the time. That means at the last minute, I can grab things from my pantry to create a delicious lemon chicken piccata casserole that even my picky eaters will enjoy eating.
The classic combination of cream of mushroom soup and potatoes is a perfect base. Adding in well-seasoned chicken with layers of sliced lemons and the classic capers of a piccata recipe makes it an ideal choice for an upscale casserole dish.
Forget the casseroles of your childhood and embrace the delicious flavors of this casserole for a sophisticated, yet kid friendly, delicious meal.
