This Country Captain Casserole recipe has been around for years. Not sure of its origins or how they came up with the name for this recipe. But I finally decided to make it, with a few tweaks, and I was surprised at how good it was.

There’s tons of flavor in this casserole thanks to the apple, curry, and raisins. If you like curry, then I would suggest you give this one a try.

Don’t you hate it when raisins get stuck together in a big clump? To unstick the raisins, wet your hands with a little water then work the raisins apart.

An alternative to using chicken broth is Better Than Bouillon. I often use it when I don’t have broth on hand.

Now while the Country Captain Casserole recipe below has you cook the chicken ahead of time, you could easily use pre-cooked chicken (like you would find at Costco). You just won’t need to do step 1.

How to Handle Raw Chicken

  • Leave the chicken in the fridge until ready to use.
  • Be careful of dripping juices. Clean up immediately.
  • Do not wash raw chicken (prevents cross-contamination).
  • Wash all utensils and cutting boards.
  • Wash your hands after handling raw chicken.

I’ve made this recipe both ways and it always turns out great. You can serve this dish on a bed of white rice like we did this time, or alone, on noodles or even use it in a Burrito! It doesn’t really matter how you enjoy this recipe, the flavor is just awesome.

    My son loves chicken so I decided to make this recipe. This was a great hit especially since he is a picky eater. Very tasty and flavourful.
