I love casseroles and this one is one of my all time favourites. The kids love it, the husband thinks Im awesome and whenever friends come over its a crowd pleaser. Its tasty and healthy and the combination of capsicum/bell pepper, tomatoes and olives is so good. This is delicious nourishing food in one pot and its so easy to make.
The chicken in this casserole is a mixture of bone-in chicken pieces (such as legs, drums and thighs though breast works too). So work with your budget and preferences. Chicken legs are so much cheaper than breast and use any sausages of your choice. I chose gluten and preservative free beef sausages from my local organic butcher.
This gives you the flexibility to adjust the meat to whatever your family prefers – kids will only eat the sausages? Then throw in extra sausages, but make sure you still use some bone-in chicken pieces as well, because the bones and cartilage will impart gelatin, minerals and other good stuff to the sauce. If you’d like to make your own chicken broth (stock), its so easy and so good for you and will take your dish truly to the next level in taste and health. Here is a recipe.
