  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Healthy Request® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, green beans, corn, peas), thawed
  • 1 cup instant mashed potato flakes
  • 1 cup fat free evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded (2% milk) low fat Cheddar cheese


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 350°F.  Stir the soup and 1/4 cup water in a large bowl.

  • Step 2

    Season the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, the onion powder and poultry seasoning.  Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook until well browned, stirring occasionally.

    I really liked this shepherd's pie. Great made with chicken. I added a clove of garlic to mine. I will be making this dish many times. I usually freeze leftover chicken since there is only 2 of us for soup or a recipe. It really came in handy for this recipe since it was already cooked. What can I say I just loved it! Super easy to prepare.

  • YUM

    Simple and easy to make. Fantastic to eat. If you want leftovers, sorry, there will be none.

  • This is not a Shepherd's Pie!

    I made this with Cream of Chicken soup and added a bit of garlic powder. Was very quick and very good! But I do have to make a correction here... A Shepherd's Pie is an Irish specialty and made only with lamb. Cottage Pie's are English and made with beef. For American's, chicken can be a good sub for Cottage Pie's. However, don't ever let Gordon Ramsay hear you call your dish a shepherd's pie if there's anything but lamb in it!!

    I made this tonight for dinner. I did make a few changes I put all spices( i added garlic to mine) and cream of mushroom in with the chicken and baked it. While the chicken cooked I made mashed potatoes (no the flakes!) . I made the rest of it as the directions says :) A keeper!

  • Haven't tried it yet, but....

    I have NOT tried this recipe yet, but will tomorrow.
    I rated it 4 stars because the recipe looks good but took away one star because it uses potato flakes when you have some good 30-minute recipes using real potatoes and chicken broth.
