  RECIPE TITLE "Hearty Chicken Casserole with Rye and Raisin Bread Recipe"
Source: Chicken - Cooking with Style
courtesy of

yields 6 Servings time--- difficultyeasy



Rye and Raisin Bread:
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup rye flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cups cornmeal
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup chopped raisins
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup molasses
1 teaspoon malt vinegar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 lbs cut-up chicken pieces
2 onions, sliced lengthwise
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 lb speck or prosciutto
3 carrots, thickly sliced
2 stalks celery, thickly sliced
1 (14 oz) can tomatoes
1/3 cup tomato paste
1 cup chicken stock
1 (1 lb) can cannellini beans, rinsed, drained
1/3 cup chopped basil
2 tablespoons chopped oregano



Lightly grease 9 x 5 inch loaf pan, line the base with paper, then grease the paper.

Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl, then stir in the raisins, milk, molasses and vinegar. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and bake at 375 degrees F for about 50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Let stand for 5 minutes then turn onto a wire to cool. While the bread is baking, prepare the chicken casserole.

Heat the oil in a large wide pan, add the chicken pieces in batches and cook over a high heat until well browned all over. Remove the chicken to a plate. Add the onions, garlic, thinly sliced speck, carrots and celery to the pan and cook, stirring, until the onions are soft. Add the undrained crushed tomatoes, tomato paste and stock and bring to a boil. Return the chicken pieces to the pan and simmer, uncovered, for about 15 minutes, or until the chicken is just tender. Add the beans and herbs, and simmer until heated through.

Serve with slices of Rye and Raisin Bread and butter.

This recipe can be made a day ahead and is also suitable for freezing.

book coverBake until Bubbly: The Ultimate Casserole Cookbook
"Everybody who grew up on tuna noodle casserole or macaroni and cheese remembers that bubbling dish brought to the table with its top dappled golden brown, piping hot and inviting. My passion for casseroles was born from memories of my childhood and my mother's lasagna, thick and rich and gooey and delicious. But once I had three children of my own, casseroles were the solution to many frenzied nights. We all loved the simplicity, ease, and satisfaction of a well-baked casserole. One of my favorite dessert casseroles was the Pear Crisp my kids and I made in late August when our pear tree was groaning from the weight of those luscious orbs ripening. We'd cut them up and arrange them in a casserole with cinnamon and then blanket them with a streusel made of flour, butter, and sugar before baking until bubbly. Hey, what a great name for a book!"
