Chicken With Cream Of Mushroom Soup

When it comes to creating a hearty and delicious meal, chicken with cream of mushroom soup is one of my all-time favorites. The combination of tender chicken and rich, creamy mushroom sauce is both comforting and satisfying. In this article, I’ll share my personal recipe and tips for making this classic dish.


To make chicken with cream of mushroom soup, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup of chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil


Here’s how I make chicken with cream of mushroom soup:

  1. First, season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and dried thyme.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the seasoned chicken breasts and cook for about 5-6 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  3. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside on a plate.
  4. In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Cook for a few minutes until the onion is soft and translucent.
  5. Pour in the cream of mushroom soup, chicken broth, and heavy cream. Stir to combine and bring the mixture to a gentle simmer.
  6. Return the chicken to the skillet, spooning some of the mushroom sauce over the top of each breast.
  7. Cover the skillet and let the chicken simmer in the sauce for 10-15 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  8. Once the chicken is heated through and the sauce has thickened slightly, it’s ready to be served.

I love serving this dish with a side of steamed rice or creamy mashed potatoes. The savory mushroom sauce complements the chicken perfectly, and the aroma that fills the kitchen as it simmers is truly mouthwatering.
