Chicken Thighs Surprise

Recipe by  

"This recipe was one of those great surprises you invent by throwing everything you have in the house together. It is a very versatile recipe in that you can substitute any chicken parts for the thighs, use whatever vegetables and herbs you have in the house, or any cheese you prefer. I have used broccoli when I have no zucchini on hand, and added dill when I have some of that. Any way you make it, it is an easy weeknight meal that has a sauce that is delicious over rice."

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the squash, eggplant, mushrooms, onion and garlic. Cook and stir for about 5 minutes, until lightly browned. Transfer to a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the condensed soup, chicken broth, garlic salt and pepper. Pour half of this mixture over the vegetables. Place chicken thighs over the top of the vegetables, and sprinkle with Swiss cheese. Pour the rest of the soup over all.
  4. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.

This recipe really is versatile! I thought for sure that I was going to ruin the dish because I just used what ingredients I had on hand. I only used zucchini,onion, garlic, 1 can cream of chicken soup, 1 can cream of broccoli soup, beef broth, Italian herbs, salt, pepper, 13 thighs, and jack cheese. It was delicious! The only thing I would do different is to brown the thighs first. The sauce was wonderful over rice and I could see adding a bit of wine to the sauce next time too!

Made this in my slow cooker the first time - really bad idea, ended up with slop! Second time followed recipe more closely, i did add more vegies. I added 2 cans of soup (1 chicken, 1 corn) also added water, had no wine so didn't bother. Next time i will add the 2 soups but no water, mushrooms and zucchini release a lot of liquid so i feel it is not needed. I will add some thyme in the future for a boost, it needed a little something extra. Good over rice.

Simple and easy. You really can't go wrong with Cream of chicken.... fortunately or unfortunately, it's the same taste always. What made this recipe nice was the eggplant/squash. I added baby ears of corn which made for a different texture and was very tasty. Also some chopped red pepper for color. Very enjoyable meal and I would do it again.

Wouldn't you know, the day this recipe came my way, I had all the ingredients...well subbing chicken tenders for thighs, using fresh green beans,broccoli, mushrooms,and onions...and it was sooooo good! I also had leftover mashed potatoes for the gravy. I did try to thicken the soup mix with a little flour/water and it was still a little runny, but my husband and I loved it! I used cream of mushroom soup. I didn't use all the pepper it called for, and sprinkled the cheese (shredded mix of cheese)on top at the end of baking. Yum!

I sometimes crave this recipe. The chicken is nice and tender and goes well on top of rice. I add another can of soup though for a thicker consistency. Good for when you have leftover veggies that you're not sure what to do with.

Very good, very easy. I did not have eggplant or mushrooms, however I used some cream of musroom soup and I served it with some brown rice. We all loved it. I can imagine how much better it will taste with ALL the ingredients! Can not wait to make it again.

Excellent recipe! I didn't use mushrooms and subbed zucchini for the squash, it was delicious! We served it with angel hair pasta since it was nice and saucy. I will make this one again!

I did not care for this dish. I found it to be boring and not very tasty. The sauce was very runny and it didn't have much flavour.
