Some days you just want a meal that isn’t fancy but is more comfort food. A meal that brings the whole family to the table, where you can enjoy each other and the meal as well. Not having to worry about what else needs to be prepped. I love the combination of meat with potatoes and cheese here. It’s fantastic! The meat becomes so tender and delicious, yummers!

The way you season the meat can differ from mine if you don’t have coriander or don’t like it. Just salt and pepper is fine too or adds your favorite spices. If any munchkins in your family don’t like mushrooms just leave one end without mushrooms and load up for yourself on the other side.

Place the mushrooms atop the meat.
Combine the heavy whipping cream, sour cream, mayonnaise, salt, pepper and Lawry’s seasoning salt for the potatoes. Mix.

Slice the cleaned potatoes very thin. If any pieces are thicker than the rest cut in half so all the potatoes are cooked evenly. Place the sliced potatoes in a bowl.

      Hi Natasha,
      You most definitely may use chicken, it will taste just as wonderful. Have you also seen this chicken CASSEROLE? It’s a favorite of our family’s.
      Hope your family will enjoy this dish. Happy cooking:).
