"Chicken thighs dipped in a creamy mushroom mixture and bread crumbs, then baked until nicely browned. I like to serve this with mashed potatoes or buttered rice, with broccoli as a side dish." — TWINKLES0303

1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of mushroom soup
dry bread crumbs
This chicken was delicious! The golden brown crust was crunchy and sealed the juices into the chicken. I prepared this using 10 chicken legs, which I first seasoned with Fiesta brand Chicken Rub (available in Texas). Because of cross-contamination concerns with the raw chicken, I changed the method of preparation. In a shallow bowl, I mixed the 1 cup of dry bread crumbs, the ½ tsp of onion powder, and the 1 tsp of dried parsley. In a separate bowl, I added ½ can of the mushroom soup only. I rolled my seasoned chicken into the mushroom soup then rolled into the dry crumb mix. This allowed the crumb mixture to adhere to the chicken resulting in a delicious crust. I drizzled with the 2 TBLs of melted butter, and baked as instructed. I used the other ½ can of the mushroom soup and a ½ can of milk to make gravy, which we served over white rice. My husband loved this meal! Thank you Doris!
Skin on or off the chicken??????????????
My husband and I loved this dish! I used boneless and skinless chicken thighs. I also added fresh cracked pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. As for the concern of using the soup mixture after the raw chicken had been in it, I set aside about 1 1/2 cups before dipping the chicken. We will be having this again!
Great recipe! Here's what I did: I took 1/4c can mushroom soup and a cup of milk and whisked them together. I also added garlic salt for flavor. I trimmed the fat off the chicken thighs (which I think are better than chicken breast b/c the bone holds in all the flavor). In a separate bowl I mixed a packet of onion soup mix and a 3/4c breadcrumbs. Dipped the thighs in the soup mix then rolled it in the dry mix. I placed them on a wire rack over a pan and sprayed it with spray butter. Cooked it at 375 for 45 mins. Was cooked perfectly. I took the remaining soup, whisked in a cup of milk (added more garlic salt to taste), and about 2 tsp of cornstarch. I did everything to taste/look. I cooked rice and some steamed asparagus with it. Great meal no leftovers!
I was searching for an easy and tasty dish using chicken thighs, and I was very pleased with this recipe. I recommend removing the skin from the thighs as the crumbs will stick better. I used reduced fat cream of mushroom soup and 8 oz of skim milk for a light version. I also recommend Italian seasoned bread crumbs for extra flavor. This is a nice dish served with flavored couscous and pinto beans. I highly recommend.
This was really good! Everyone liked it. The only thing I did differently was to add some onion soup mix (dry) to the bread crumbs to punch up the flavor. YUM!
This recipe is simple and delicious. To the mushroom soup, I added garlic powder along with the onion powder. I also added some Mrs. Dash because I didn't have any dried parsley. I seasoned the bread crumbs with salt and pepper, and still didn't find the end product too salty. I decided not to make the sauce, because I don't like the thought of eating a sauce that I previously used to dip raw chicken pieces in...even if I am going to boil it! All in all, my family loved this and I'll add this to my rotation. Thanks Doris.
Incredibly yummy comfort food recipe, very easy and minimal work - great for busy weekdays when you just want to throw something in the oven and relax after coming home. I usually put on the rice cooker while popping the chicken in the oven and voila! Dinner is ready within an hour, and mama has time for a glass of wine and an episode of something while it cooks. Thanks for sharing this!
