Classic comfort food gets a lighter lemony twist! This chicken and potato bake is creamy, comforting, and guaranteed to fill you up and put a smile on your face!
Classic comfort food flavors come together in this lemon chicken and potato bake… with the bright twist of adding lemon slices 🙂
Tis the season for comfort food… and to me nothing says comfort food more than a casserole! Casseroles or bakes remind me of sitting around the family dinner table as a kid.
I used my food processor with the slicing blade to slice my potatoes super thin, but a mandolin or some serious chopping skills would work too, just make sure your potatoes are thin enough to fully cook.
Yukon gold potatoes work really well here, but red skin potatoes would be good too!
Cover and bake for an hour, until the potatoes are tender. I wanted the top of my bake to be a little crispy, so I took the foil off and broiled on high for a few minutes.
I found that some chopped parsley really gave this a fresh taste 😀
