Mum's Beef or Chicken Casserole

This was mum's basic casserole recipe. I made it with chicken tonight and it was a lovely old fashioned style casserole. I also cooked it on the cooktop as I was in a hurry and it only takes half the time. Update: 12 Oct 06 I have just posted a photo of the beef casserole that was cooked in the oven.

Hubby, who couldn't wait until dinner and had a pre-taste, said: Now THIS is how food should taste! No namby pamby, just honest food. This is what every man wants to come home to. When we sat down for dinner all I heard was contented grumps, mmmmm, and noises alike. This is just wonderful. Good comfort, very tasty casserole. Used skinless, boneless chickenthighs. Did not need any extra salt and just added a little ground pepper. Your Mum could sure cook. I am extremely pleased to have found this recipe and you can be assured that it will be made many many times. Don't change a thing, Hubby said, and I won't. Thanks so much for posting.

I put it in for the amount of time it stated but the potatoes were still hard!

This was superb. My husband and kid loved it. I made few changes, used 2tbs worcestershire sauce. I had no beans so I added a can of mixed vegetables. Also used beef stock cubes, not sure if it's the same as bouillon cubes. Deffinately a keeper. Thank you so much for posting.
