This very simple chicken and sauerkraut casserole is surprisingly delicious. Be sure to serve it with good dark bread and nice cold beer.

Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I am the recipe submitter. This recipe is meant to be made with raw cutup chicken. It's very tasty when made as written.

This was terrible. I chose one star because I had to to be able to submit my review. I would not suggest this to anyone. It tasted awful and will stink your entire house up while cooking.

I used real new potatoes instead of canned and it worked out great. My 4 year old loved it and it was incredibly easy to make.

This tasted great. It took way longer for mine to get done. Probably because my free range chicken weighed almost 6 pounds and I used fresh potatoes. Great recipe though!

This is the best moistest chicken you can imagine. I have been making this for years & now my children & Grand children are making it too. The only difference in the way I make it is... I use a whole chicken stuff the sauerkraut inside & around the chicken. Roast it until the chicken is done ( the juice runs clear when poked by the thigh) I serve it with mashed potatoes & mix the sauerkraut in( on my plate) You can;t get any better than this. ALL the flavors blend together to make a wonderful tasting meal.

I altered this a bit by using chicken thighs which I browned before adding to the casserole and adding chopped fresh cabbage along with a thinly sliced raw potato and the sauerkraut. I also added a little chicken broth and some water before baking since I didn't have any tin foil to cover it. It baked in about 70 minutes and tasted wonderful! It's definitely comfort food but also pretty healthy especially with the extra cabbage. The only thing I'd do differently when I make it again is double the garlic.

I love chicken and sauerkraut. The acid from the kraut marinates the chicken as it bakes making it moist and delicious. I am of German heritage so the smell of kraut doesn't bother me a bit. It reminds me of my grandmother's house. I changed the recipe a bit. I added a can of drained diced tomatoes 3 Tbsp of brown sugar celery seeds and a grated granny smith apple or two to the sauerkraut. Cover the chicken with the kraut and bake. Yum!!
