Every cook needs a go-to casserole recipe, and this one is a winner. The brightness of lemon pairs perfectly with chicken and potatoes in the recipe below. The cream of chicken soup makes an effortless, creamy sauce to blanket the roasted potatoes and chicken.
One technique used in this dish that you may not have seen before is roasting the lemon along with the rest of the ingredients. This adds a lovely sweetness to the usually bitter and sour lemon, which brings even more richness and complexity to the final dish.
