Easy Papaya Chicken Casserole

Recipe by less2saw
READY IN: 1hr 25mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Cut up whole frying chicken into pieces, or chicken breasts into halves. I like to use bone in/skin on because I think the meat is moister. I remove the skin and bones before I put the sauce over it all.
  • Dredge the chicken pieces in flour, set aside. Sometimes I use chicken coating mix, just to spice this up a bit more.
  • In a roaster or large casserole dish melt butter, dip the chicken in the butter and place buttered side up.
  • Bake the chicken for one hour or until juices run clear and the chicken is tender.
  • Carefully drain the fat out of the roaster, discard the skin and bones if necessary.
  • For the sauce: Mix remaining ingredients in a saucepan (except the papaya) and bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling and thickened add the papaya to the chicken in the roaster.
  • Pour the sauce over all, and put back in the oven for 5 minutes.
  • Let this mixture stand for 5 more minutes before serving, so the papaya can heat through.
  • If you serve this dish with rice, double the sauce recipe.
