"This casserole is the tastiest chicken dish that I have ever tasted. The sweet potato adds an interesting addition to the chicken, alternatively butternut squash can be used in its place. Everyone I have ever cooked this casserole for has loved it! Serve with rice or mashed potato with fresh, crisp green vegetables." — RACHEL

onion, finely chopped
sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - diced
dry white wine
half-and-half or light cream
I did tweak this recipe a bit - I left the wine completely out. I also didn't add any of the cream for the sake of keeping it lower fat and more casserole like than stew like. After putting everything into the baking dish I sprinkled a very generous amount of cinnamon and nutmeg on the top, stirred it a bit, then covered it and put it in the oven at the recommended temp and rec. time. It was FABULOUS!!! My kids who HATE sweet potatoes LOVED this dish!!! A definite keeper in my book.
I followed the recipe exactly, but it ended up like stew. It was ok, but it didn't have very much flavor. It was better the second day.
I prepared 2 servings. Left out the cream and white wine. I added one diced apple and 2 more carrots. I also increased the garlic to 2 cloves and it wasn't a bit overpowering. As other reviewers did, I added some spices - generous shake of pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg). By leaving out some of the liquid ingredients, I ended up with just a little nice sauce at the bottom. Adding the apple really mellows the taste of the chicken broth. We ate it all on its own; no rice or bread. Great fall recipe. My husband and I really loved it! With extra veggies & fruit and without the cream, it feels healthy too!
I was looking for a chicken casserole with something other than broccoli and cheese in it- boy, did I find it - this is outstanding!
This was terrible. My husband wouldn't even touch it and put a frozen pizza in the oven. As another said, it was a stew not a casserole. It was a featured recipe in the Acme Markets circular. I'm going to complain to Acme since I doubt they tested it first.
After reading the other reviews, I decided to consider this recipe a stew, rather than a casserole. I made the whole thing on the top of the stove and served it over rice. My husband and I both thought it was very good, with an interesting and unusual combination of flavors, and we would not object to having it again.
Yuk. The wine really stood out and there really wasn't that much flavor.
This was very good. Alot of prep work though.I spent alot of time dicing into small pieces, but could have stopped at just chopping. I would call it a stew rather than a casserole. It comes out very thick and is ideal with buttermilk biscuits. I'm going to try this in my slow cooker next time.
