Ginger Ale Chicken Casserole

Chicken in Ginger Ale has got to be the easiest, tastiest way to serve chicken pieces that is seriously delicious. The best thing about it is that you can make this for 2 people or 200 people without any problem and everyone will love it. This is the perfect holiday recipe. The sauce thicken up beautifully and over a nice pile of rice and a salad, there is no easier way to produce a delicious meal for the masses. (4 -6 people)

What you need

8- 10 chicken portions thighs, legs and breasts skin on
1 packet instant brown onion soup
1 packet instant mushroom soup
1 liter Ginger Ale

The process

Heat your oven to 130 Celsius

Take a large casserole dish that you can place a single layer of chicken pieces to cover the bottom or use more than one oven dish.

Mix together the soup powders and coat eack piece of chicken in a fine coating of the mixture, shake off the excess and the lay skin side up into the casserole dish.

Pour 3/4 of the Ginger Ale into the casserole and then pour the remaing Ginger Ale into whatever is left of the soup powders, give it a mix and then pour over the top of the chicken.

Cover your casserole and pop into the oven for 3 hours. If you don’t have a casserole dish with a lid, cover with foil.

That is that, a delicious meal without any fuss. Serve with rice and salad.

You can fancy it up a bit by adding a few mushrooms 1/2 way through the cooking process or mix in a tablespoon of apricot jam with the ginger ale and soup mix for those who like it a little sweeter.

On a side note, for those of you who make beer can roast chicken, try it with Coke or Ginger Ale for a change!

      Hi Lisa. You can get ginger ale in the UK. It is possibly called Dry Ginger or Canada Dry but I buy it often to go with my whisky!! Check out drinks shelves in Tesco etc!
      Good luck
