Spanish Chicken Casserole

This particular casserole makes a great dish for family gatherings or when you have friends around.  The unusual flavours of this cassrole and somewhat reminded me of a tarjin because it had the citrus taste of the lemon juice.  I made this over a Sunday weekend and had it with crusty bread which was just nice to mop up the gravy.  I froze the remaining left overs.

Hello,

This recipe looks delicious! I have a question - when browning the chicken and cooking the onions, do we do it on the stovetop or in the oven?

Thank you.
