  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup of long-grain white rice
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • 1 cup of sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup of diced onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Fresh parsley for garnish

One thing I love about this recipe is its simplicity. The ingredients are easy to find and the cooking process is straightforward, making it a perfect go-to meal for busy days without sacrificing flavor or satisfaction.


  1. Start by seasoning the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and a pinch of dried thyme.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat and add the seasoned chicken breasts. Cook until golden brown on both sides and fully cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add the diced onion, minced garlic, and sliced mushrooms. Cook until the onions are translucent and the mushrooms are tender.
  4. Stir in the cream of mushroom soup and chicken broth. Bring the mixture to a simmer.
  5. Add the uncooked rice to the skillet and give everything a good stir.
  6. Place the cooked chicken breasts on top of the rice mixture, cover the skillet with a lid, and let it simmer for about 20-25 minutes or until the rice is fully cooked and has absorbed the liquid.
  7. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley before serving.

One of my favorite parts of preparing this dish is the aroma that fills the kitchen as it cooks. The savory scent of mushrooms, garlic, and thyme blending together is simply irresistible.

Personal Touch:

While the recipe itself is fantastic as is, I often like to add a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese on top just before serving for an extra touch of richness. The cheese melts into the creamy sauce, adding a delightful savory note that elevates the entire dish to a whole new level.


In conclusion, cream of mushroom chicken and rice has become a beloved staple in my cooking repertoire. Its comforting and hearty nature makes it a regular feature on my dinner table, and the smiles and satisfied nods from my loved ones reaffirm its place as a timeless classic in my kitchen. I highly encourage anyone looking for a truly satisfying and flavorful meal to give this recipe a try – it’s a surefire way to bring joy to the table.
