    1 hour 50 minutes

    A very tasty, one pot casserole with a rich gravy. Comfort food and very moorish! You can brown the chicken in a frypan if its easier.

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Heat the oil in a large heat proof dish casserole over medium high heat on a hotplate.
    2. Mix the flour and salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Coat the chicken in the flour. Brown the chicken in the dish for 5 to 8 minutes, turning once, until brown on both sides.
    3. Place the potatoes, carrots and cabbage in the casserole. Pour the stock and stout over the vegetables and chicken. Add the sugar and cornflour and mix well. Cover and cook in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Uncover and cook for a further 30 minutes. Serve and enjoy!


    You can also try this recipe with beef - just use braising, stewing or chuck steak, which are great cuts for casseroles and slow cooking.

    Fabulous casserole, much cooked in this household! Only change we make is to add mushrooms  -  09 Feb 2010


    This was really easy to make and quite tasty. Next time I'll try adding onions, marmite instead of Guiness and the pressure cooker instead of the oven, if it works it would be the perfect quick fix.  -  09 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
