    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.
