Ingredients

cost per recipe: $5.50

  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast (4 small or 2 large cut in half lengthwise for thinner pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Mushroom Soup or Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1/2 cup water (for creamier sauce, use milk)

Instructions

  • Tips

    • Try Italian-Style Chicken!  Add 1/2 cup chopped Italian plum tomatoes, 1 tablespoon each fresh parsley and basil leaves or 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves, crushed, with the soup.
    • Try Chicken Dijon!  Use Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Celery Soup and stir in 1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard.
  • Step 1

    Season the chicken with salt and pepper.  Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook for 6 minutes or until well browned on both sides (to prevent sticking- make sure the skillet and oil are hot before adding the chicken).  Remove the chicken from the skillet.

  • Step 2

    Stir the soup and water in the skillet and heat to a boil. Return the chicken to the skillet.  Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is done.  Season to taste and serve over hot cooked rice, if desired.

    I tried this for the first time today. It is very easy to make and that helps when getting out of work late. Thank you

    I have made something like this for years, but I make a complete dinner with it. I peel and slice potatoes and onions and add this to the recipe.
    1) Spray bottom of 9x13 in. casserole dish
    2) peel potatoes and slice them ( I use 1 baking potato for 2 members of the family) place into sprayed casserole dish, add a little salt and pepper and sometimes I will put garlic powder on
    3) peel and slice onions and place on top of potatoes
    4) add the chicken and season with whatever seasons you want
    5)mix 2 cans of the soup with about 1 can of water, pour soup and water over all
    6) cover with foil and bake until chicken is done. 45-60 min. depending on oven

    Sometimes I will mix a can of peas or mixed vegetables (drained) on top of the onions.

    I have been making this for the family for years and have mixed up the meat, we will have pork chops instead of the chicken.

    So fast and so easy. I add an additional can of Mushroom soup to make extra gravy for my side dishes including: egg noodles (no yolks), mash potatoes, or rice pilaf. Then serve with green beans, cole slaw or a salad.

    I really enjoyed this recipe, not only was it very easy it was very tasty!! It's a great thing to whip up when you aren't in the mood to cook. I served mine over brown rice, I want to try it over quinoa or mashed potatoes next time.
