My recipe serves 2 hungry people or 3 less-hungry people.
You will need:
* 3 thin chicken breasts
* 2 little packets of Knorr Quick Sopa mix: we chose the cebola (onion) flavor (not pictured), but you can choose whatever you want, I suppose:
*2 big potatoes... this kind:
*Some chopped up green onion (optional)
*1 Knorr potinho de caldo
(In case you haven't noticed, I'm totally addicted to anything involving Knorr and chicken stock. These are new. I love them.)
*About 1 tablespoon of potato flakes (batata desidratada em flocos).... this can be optional if you don't have it, but it makes the recipe way better
*A tablespoon of butter or margarine
What to do:
1. Wash and chop up the potato in big-ish pieces. Jamie Oliver says not to take the skin off of these potatoes, so I don't.
2. Add the potatoes to at least 600-700ml of water and boil them.
3. While the potatoes are boiling, use a napkin to spread a thin layer of butter around the dish that you're going to use to cook the casserole. The butter prevents everything from sticking to the pan and burning.
4. Peel and chop up your onion into small-ish pieces. The size doesn't really matter.
5. Throw the onion into the buttered dish and spread it around.
6. Once the water is boiled and the potatoes are softer (not soft enough to be mashed potatoes, just a bit softened.... should take about 10-15 minutes) use a strainer to take the potatoes out of the water while saving the water. Save the boiled water!
7. Mix the potatoes in with the onion in the buttered casserole dish.
8. Measure out 500ml of the boiled water. (If you don't have potato flakes, add only 300ml.) Put the 500ml (or 300ml) of boiled water back on the stove to continue boiling. Add in 1 packet of the Knorr Quick soup and the 1 Knorr potinho de caldo. (If you have potato flakes and 500ml of water, add in the 1-2 tablespoons of potato flakes.) Mix this and continue to boil this to make your sauce.
9. Lay out the chicken breasts on top of the potatoes and onions on the casserole dish. The chicken breasts should be defrosted but uncooked.
10. Get the other packet of Knorr Quick soup and sprinkle the powder directly over the chicken, onions, and potatoes (focusing on the chicken).
11. Pour your boiled Knorr sauce over the everything in the casserole dish.
12. If you want, sprinkle some green onions on top of everything.
13. Stick your casserole dish in the oven at 230 degrees Celsius and bake it until the chicken is ready (for about 20-30 minutes).
14. Take it out, wait for it to cool a bit, and enjoy!!

It isn't necessarily the healthiest meal, but it sure is tasty.
Remember that if you don't have the Knorr spices and mixes, you can make your own sauce/broth to cover the chicken, potatoes and onions. This recipe can be easily modified.
I hope you like it as much as we did! We licked the pan a bit, because when you eat at home with your loved one(s), you can do that.
