What is a casserole?
A casserole could be a cooking vessel or a casserole could be defined as the ingredients. In this case I am referring to a casserole as it relates to ingredients. A casserole can include meat, vegetables, beans, rice or anything else that when combined would be delicious. For added texture and flavor, often a casserole is topped with cheese or bread crumbs. The possibilities are endless!
What type of dish can be used to make a casserole in?
When making a casserole, the vessel you bake it in needs to be oven safe. The cooking vessel can be glass, metal, ceramic or anything that is safe for the oven. Look for a container that comes with a tight fitting lid as some casseroles need to be covered. Also handles on the casserole dish can be helpful for removing the dish from the oven.
What type of chicken can be used in chicken casseroles?
Casseroles are great for using up leftover chicken but depending on the recipe, canned chicken, rotisserie chicken, fresh cut chicken, ground chicken, chicken breast or other cuts of chicken can be used. Be sure to check the recipe for what type of chicken should be used.
