Skillet Herb Roasted Chicken is another example of the many things you can do with some chicken and a can of condensed cream soup!  Once you've made this you can use the same technique using other condensed soups and seasonings- it's a no-recipe recipe you can always turn to!  Coat the chicken in flour and herbs then saute in butter until browned.  Add the soup and some water to make a creamy pan sauce and you're done!  Serve over rice or noodles or with crusty bread to soak up the delicious sauce- Skillet Herb Roasted Chicken is a busy cook's best friend!


cost per recipe: $5.76

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast (4 small or 2 large cut in half lengthwise for thinner pieces)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup or Cream of Chicken Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1/2 cup water


  • Tips

    • Don't have chicken breasts or prefer thighs?  You can substitute 1 1/4 pounds skinless boneless chicken thighs for the chicken breasts.
  • Step 1

    Stir the flour, sage and thyme on a plate.  Season the chicken with salt and pepper.  Coat the chicken with the flour mixture.

  • Step 2

    Heat the butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook for 15 minutes or until browned on both sides and done (to prevent sticking make sure the skillet and butter are hot before adding the chicken).  Remove the chicken from the skillet, cover and keep warm.

  • Step 3

    Stir the soup and water in the skillet and cook until the mixture is hot.  Serve the sauce with the chicken.

    Very easy! Added garlic powder and pepper to the chicken while it was cooking. I cut the chicken into smaller portions before the flour mixture so it needed less cooking time and it was very juicy.

    I haven't made this for a while, but it is one of my go-to's. I bread the chicken in flour, salt, and pepper and cook it in the butter. I add the thyme and sage to the sauce. You could probably add garlic, paprika, parsley, and/or rosemary if you want to. This is a quick, easy basic recipe that is easy to modify and customize to your liking. It can be served with your side vegetable of choice. I will be making this for my family for dinner again asap.

  • Surprisingly good

    I didn't have any flour so spread the thyme and sage around and made sure each piece of chicken had some. I added minced garlic with the butter. I used brown whole grain rice...and had a side of green beans. Surprisingly good! I don't care for brown rice but am trying to eat healthier. The soup mixture took away the taste of the rice. I also, instead of taking the chicken out of the skillet, left it in when added the soup and water. I think this kept the chicken moist. I would make it again :)

    I am delighted to try this recipe tonight using FRESH HERBS gathered myself at my local Community Supported Agriculture farm share. We were able to join this year to enjoy fresh organic vegetables all summer. Members can also pick all the herbs and flowers they like, so I can use fresh herbs in this dish. More later!
