    Scandis chicken casserole:
    Ingredients:
    1 large shallow pan with lid
    One bottle of white - minus 2 glasses of white
    3 rashers of bacon chopped into bits
    Garlic butter
    1 onion diced
    Mushrooms sliced
    Chicken breasts cut in half - think I used 5
    Garlic butter
    Double cream - probably 300ml
    Dill
    Salt
    pepper
    Plain flour
    Fry bacon in garlic butter. After a bit add onions and mushrooms. Then add the chicken breasts. Brown for a bit. Add everything else. If sauce is thinner than you like, sprinkle over some plain flour ( I used 2dsp) and stir in. Leave to simmer for approx 35 mins. Your pan needs a lid!
    Serve with broccoli or whatever you've got in! Enjoy!
