During the winter months, many of us live off of casseroles. They are my go to when all else fails. I have even made casseroles for Family Dinner Night and every one leaves happy and full. And sometimes with a little bit of leftovers.

Breadcrumbs are never a bad thing, right?

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
In a 10-inch cast iron skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic; stirring occasionally, until vegetables are just tender, about 3 minutes. Whisk in flour; cook, whisking constantly, for 1 minute. Gradually, whisk in stock and cream until smooth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; stir in 1 cup cheese, salt, poultry seasoning and pepper until cheese is melted and sauce heat; stir in chicken, rice, peas, and parsley.
In a small bowl, stir together remaining 1/2 cup of cheese, melted butter, and bread crumbs. Sprinkle onto casserole. Bake until topping is lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with parsley, if desired.


  • I didn't add the parsley.
