Aunt Teresa's Chicken Casserole !

After a heavy Indian meal at noon, the idea of a light, but  also delicious, however  fuss free dinner  turns out to be a challenge for  me.  At such times bread turns out very convenient but am always at a loss for ideas as  the few I know  all end up on lines of subs which gets boring .  So was very delighted to come across this recipe which combined veggies ( abhit  happy) and chicken ( joy happy)  and at the same time turned out very very delicious. Truly a hearty dish, it went very well with Panini. A no fuss dish (me happy) , you only need to have ample time  to bake . The yellow streaks u see on the top, is a very small spoon of butter added by yours truly... not there in the recipe at all and so skip it by all means.  The link to the original recipe is at the bottom. The following proportion is just right for 3 people.  Incidentally, I used boiled chicken. 

Ingredients : 
6 chicken thighs
1 large green capsicum sliced
2 large carrots shredded 
2 onions sliced.
2 cans condensed cream of mushroom soup.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees centigrade. Butter a 9 by 13 inch baking dish lightly (minimal butter) . In it , layer in  the following  order -- onions, pepper, carrots, chicken. Pour the soup over the chicken. Going by other users's recommendations, I also sprinkled some chopped garlic, pepper and  pizza topper (since I had it at home )-- u may add oregano. The next time I plan to layer the chicken with sliced mushrooms before pouring the soup. Cover with aluminium foil and bake at 180 degrees  for 45 minutes.  Remove the foil and bake for another  15 minutes...The pic below shows the layer -- onions cant be seen, capsicum at the very bottom , followed by carrot, followed by chicken and topped by the soup. The pizza topper and pepper giving a dark appearance to the top.

Bon appetit!!!!!
