Ingredients for Ground Chicken Casserole Recipe

  • Chicken Mince 500 grams

  • Green Tomatoes 2 cloves

  • Black peppercorns 6

  • Clove 1

  • Dried thyme 1/8 teaspoon

  • Salt to taste

  • Onion 1/2 small

  • Green chillies 3

  • Green tomatoes 6 medium

  • Fresh coriander leaves 1/2 cup

  • Green capsicum 2 medium

  • Oil 2 tablespoons

  • Corn tortillas 6

  • Sour cream 1/2 cup

  • Cheddar cheese 3/4 cup


Step 1

Wash and drain chicken mince thoroughly. Peel and wash garlic. Grind one garlic clove, peppercorns, clove, thyme and salt in a mortar. Add this paste to chicken mince and mix well.

Step 2

Peel, wash and chop onion. Remove stems and wash green chillies. Wash green tomatoes. Clean, wash and roughly chop coriander leaves. Wash capsicums and wipe dry.

Step 3

Heat one tablespoon of oil in a pan, add onion and sauté till it turns translucent. Add chicken mince and continue to sauté over medium heat for ten minutes. Keep aside. Boil green chillies in half a cup of water for two to three minutes. Add green tomatoes and cook till they change colour. Drain and let cool. Transfer to a blender, add one clove of garlic, coriander leaves, salt and grind to a puree. Keep aside. Roast capsicums till outer skin is slightly charred. Remove skin and cut into strips. Preheat oven to 190° C.

Step 4

Heat remaining oil in a skillet and fry each tortilla on both sides for a minute each. Arrange three tortillas overlapping each other in a baking dish. Cover with a layer of mince, a layer of half the capsicum strips, a layer of half the sour cream and one third of the grated cheese. Repeat these layers. Cover with green tomato puree and bake in a preheated oven at 190° C for five minutes. Sprinkle remaining grated cheese and bake till cheese melts and turns slightly brown.

Step 5

Serve hot.
