  • Place chicken in a large pot and cover with water; bring to a boil and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes. Drain.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir carrots, onion, and salt into hot skillet, cover the skillet, and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir Cajun seasoning into vegetables.

  • Sprinkle flour over vegetable mixture in the skillet; cook and stir until flour taste cooks off, about 1 minute. Gradually stir orange juice and broth, respectively, into vegetable mixture; bring to a boil.

  • Stir chicken, peas, 1/2 of the parsley, and dill into broth mixture; remove from heat and stir in buttermilk. Pour buttermilk mixture into a baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Stir corn flakes and remaining parsley together in a bowl. Sprinkle corn flake mixture over chicken mixture; bake until corn flakes are golden and casserole is bubbling, about 5 minutes more. Let rest 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

To make ahead of time, prepare the chicken mixture and refrigerate for up to 2 days. When ready to cook, transfer the mixture to a casserole dish and reheat, covered, in a 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oven for 20 minutes. Top with the corn flakes and continue to bake as directed.

It's sooooo nice to see a chicken casserole that doesn't include a can of creamed soup and the texture on this is perfectly creamy. I did cook my chicken breast whole and then cubed. This was just a little heavy on the O.J. for our personal taste but that citrus flavor is an important part of what makes this special. I drizzled just a little bit of melted butter on the corn flakes but otherwise followed the recipe. And for anybody who buys rotisserie chicken at the store keep this recipe in mind. There are so many layers of flavor you're gonna' be surprised and surprised in a good way. Donna Henderson Hopgood thanks for sharing your recipe it's a winner! Read More

It's pretty good. I made a few changes just because I had some fresh herbs brought to me so I added fresh oregano and omitted the dill. Next time I'll leave off the cornflakes and either top with phyllo dough or biscuits. I think the cornflakes combined with the oj made it a tad too sweet. Read More

Grabbed heavy cream and had it poured in before I realized my mistake. Casserole was still delishous. Will make with buttermilk as called for next time! Read More
