Whenever I need to feed a big group of people and do not want to spend too much time in the kitchen, I go to this recipe. It is very easy to make, the only work involves pan frying the chicken, and some cutting. Everything else is then poured into oven-safe casserole and bake till you are ready to serve.
Who knows that milk and chicken can give you such satisfaction.
The only thing to take note is frying the chicken. The last time I gave my sis this recipe verbally, I told her to pan-fry till it brown. So she skipped this step at her discretion. It ended up her dish has a thick layer of yellow liquid floating on top. Quizz her further than realised that's the chicken fat that should have been take off after pan-frying.
The photo was taken during my recent vacation in UK, cooking for my friend's family. The original recipe uses whole chicken but I used thigh which is relatively cheaper there! :-)
Also, I added vegetables (whatever I can find in the fridge which happen to be carrot and fresh mushrooms) to make the meal complete.
