How to make chicken and sausage casserole
I use a cast iron casserole pan with a lid that’s hob and oven safe to make my sausage and chicken dish, if you don’t have one brown the sausages and chicken in a frying pan and then transfer to a casserole dish with a lid for the oven cooking.
- Heat the oven – preheat the oven to 180C / 350F / Gas Mark 4
- Brown the chicken and sausages – add a splash of olive oil to the pan and brown the sausages and cook the diced chicken breast until it turns white coloured on the outside.
- Add the vegetables – throw in the chopped onions, celery and carrots.
- Add the beef stock and tomato puree – pour over the beef stock and add the tomato puree, season with salt and ground black pepper and give everything a gentle mix and stir around. Then put the lid on.
- Cook in the oven – put the chicken and sausage casserole into the oven and cook for 1 hour 30 minutes. When it’s cooked thoroughly remove the chicken sausage stew from the oven – if the gravy needs thickening do this with a couple of tsp of cornflour mixed into a paste with cold water and then stirred through the gravy to thicken.
Make chicken and sausage casserole your way
- Bulk it up – need your casserole to feed more people, then bulk it up. Add extra sausages or vegetables or try adding a can of butterbeans or brown lentils.
- Go spicy – fancy a kick of heat? Stir some harissa paste through the gravy or add a pinch of chilli powder.

Can I make chicken and sausage casserole in the slow cooker?
Yes – you totally can make our stewed sausages and chicken in the slow cooker – here’s a few cooking tips to make sure it turns out tasty!
- Always brown your sausages before adding to slow cooker stew – otherwise they look awful!
- Reduce the amount of liquid added – slow cooker stews do tend to be quite watery if you add to much extra liquid – I’d use only 400ml for a slow cooker stew.
- If you need to – you can thicken your stew by mixing a couple of tsp of cornflour into a paste with some cold water and stirring through the stew.

What to serve with chicken and sausage casserole
I usually make this chicken and sausage dish as an easy Sunday dinner recipe, so I tend to add traditional Sunday dinner type side dishes…
- Yorkshire puddings – I’m usually lazy and buy the Aunt Bessies Yorkshire puddings – I like my Sunday’s to be less cooking more family time. I sometimes add some Aunt Bessie stuffing balls too, because they go so well with chicken and sausage!
- Mashed potatoes – you can’t beat a big bowlful of creamy mashed potatoes alongside a delicious chicken stew recipe. And if you fancy mash with a kick – try our mustard mash recipe here – it’s great with sausages.
- Green vegetables – add a side of green vegetables – broccoli or some frozen vegetables from the freezer work great here.
