Because there's something about potato that makes every dish feel so cozy.

I'll be honest with you: I really love a meal where I can just set it and forget it. Pop it in the oven and make sure my kitchen is nice and clean when it comes out. Those are the best, because then you're not going to bed knowing your kitchen looks like it's the first battleground for a new world war.


And dishes like these, where there's honestly as little prep as possible, only make it all the better. I made this mostly from scratch (barring the canned peas & carrots), but you could just as easily use canned chicken or rotisserie chicken if you don't want to waste a whole pan cooking it up, and maybe you can throw the onions in with the potatoes on the first bake, too. (You'll see what I mean when you see the directions.)


There was a question asked recently about whether or not canned, frozen, or boxed foods are still magical, and I say absolutely! In fact, I talk a bit about it on my YouTube here. So long as the food in question is still actually food (as in, not artificial food product), I can't see any reason it would be any less magical. (And even if it is artificial food product, I mean... color magic still applies, at least. Make that Red 40 work!)


But without further ado, let's dive into the recipe—one that's perfect for enriching your love life with the carrot, pea, and the fenugreek and cardamom in your curry spice mix!

Magic in Chicken & Potato Casserole

Curry powder is such a game changer for magic. Each brand makes their blend of spices a little bit different, but trust me when I say that if you get one that has the good stuff in it (fenugreek, cardamom, turmeric, ginger, anise, so on and so forth) then you quite literally have a dozen different magical combinations in one little glass jar. That makes switching up the magic in your dish so much easier than if you had to go grabbing all those spices separately every time! Same idea applies with Italian seasoning mix or any other spice blend.


And when it comes to this here meal, that concept once again shines through. This is one of those dishes that's perfect for nights where you want to just plop something in the oven and forget about it without sacrificing the magic. And this magic, with earth, fire, air, and water all here, as well as the planets, Mercury, Venus, and Mars, makes it a great dish for attracting wealth, love, and luck. It's especially good at helping you achieve all these things in harmony and balance with that elemental spread, too!

  4. Bake for at least 30min, or until starting to get crispy.

  5. When the onion is translucent, add chopped chicken & fry until almost cooked through.

  6. In a separate bowl, combine Greek yogurt, salt, pepper, & spices, then mix until combined

  7. Once potatoes are pre-baked, mix in chicken, onion, drained peas & carrots, and fold into the yogurt mixture., then add a layer of cheese on top.

  8. Bake for another 20min. Broil on high at the end for another 5min.

I don't know what it is about potato, but it fills me up a lot more than noodles or rice does, and so a good bowl of this leaves me feeling so satisfied at the end of a long day. If you've got a few taters and some chicken on hand, try it out! ♥
