This recipe is called after my husband Michael as he made this dish with me sharing instructions from the couch.....it is a recipe inspired by several recipes (paprika chciken with sour cream sauce on cookidoo and Lala's Creamy lemon chicken) I tend to have chicken stock in the freezer but can easily use water with stock concentrate and also recommend this stock powder for a great flavour. https://cookidoo.com.au/recipes/recipe/en-AU/r496926
This recipe could easily be doubled or trippled, just adjust cook time of onions and use more casserole dishes
