Chicken and lemon casserole

One of my favourite syn-free one-pot wonders- ideal for all the family

I love this recipe, it’s real home-cooked comfort food. It’s got lots of lovely speed veggies in it, there are no syns, and it’s really tasty. For me it’s a lovely Sunday lunch roast alternative, and the kids love it too.


My Recipe

Serves: 4
Syns: none
Healthy Extra: none


  • 6 boneless chicken thighs, or 4 chicken breasts, chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 sticks celery, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 large carrots, chopped
  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 1 unwaxed lemon, cut into slices
  • 200g green beans
  • handful fresh chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • Frylight
  • 12 new potatoes, halved, or 6 regular potatoes, chopped into chunks


  1. Spray a large non-stick casserole dish with low calorie cooking spray. Place over a high heat. Add the chicken pieces and cook until lightly browned on all sides.
  2. Add the onion, celery and garlic, and cook for a few more minutes until softened
  3. Add the carrots, chicken stock, potatoes and lemon slices, season well, cover with a lid, and simmer gently for 30 minutes, being careful not tp let it boil up. If the stock doesn't quite cover the veg then add a little more water so everything's immersed
  4. Mix in the green beans, place the lid on and simmer for a further 5-8 minutes.
  5. Check that the potatoes are cooked through, and serve sprinkled with chopped parsley (remove the lemon slices as you serve)
