    Chicken Casserole Romaine Lettuce

    Well, let’s just say that this recipe is perfect for a family mid-week meal or any time when entertaining. It’s that versatile.

    In fact, a casserole like this works great for both lunch and dinner. And here is why:

    • You can make it beforehand
    • You can freeze it
    • Or you can make only parts of it beforehand and then bake or reheat them later

    It’s that simple. And the best part of it – your family will LOVE it!

    Lettuce Eat Healthy

    Speaking of healthy eating, it is actually lettuce that inspired me to make this recipe, even though it is not the main ingredient… That’s right!

    The thing is, it is very likely that you and me, we both include a lot less plants in our daily intake than we should. Let me know if I am wrong in the comments below. But if you are one of those eaters that don’t like plants a lot at all, using them with chicken is a small trick to make your nutrition just a notch healhier. Chicken will give you extra protein and lettuce will do the rest.

    Chicken Protein

    If you wonder what chicken to get, – chicken thighs, legs or even breast work best. The choice largely depends on what you prefer. Other than that, there is no bigh of a difference.

    Using Veggies to Add Color

    I used potatoes and carrots to add color (apart from making the dish even healthier). More color makes the chicken casserole even more inviting and guarantees one will finish the plate with ease (even if they don’t like lettuce). Verified.

    Oh, and if you don’t like the dill flavor, you can use parsley instead.
