Need a week night dinner idea that is quick and easy and won’t break the bank? Casserole recipes are a great way to save money and this chicken in white wine sauce is a really tasty, cheap and quick dish you can enjoy at any time of year.

This recipe serves four, but it’s really easy to double if you’re feeding a crowd or want to batch cook something you can freeze for future meals.
So give it a go today and you’ll have another delicious week night meal under your belt.
