I love this baked chicken recipe because it is so fast and easy to put together. With only a few ingredients, that are always on hand, I can have dinner in the oven in only a couple of minutes.

 

Ingredients:

4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs or breasts
1 can (10 3/4 oz.) cream of chicken soup
1 soup can of water
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
freshly ground black pepper

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350° F

  1. Place chicken in baking dish.
  2. Whisk together condensed soup, water and seasonings; pour over chicken in baking dish.
  3. Bake until chicken is cooked through. Chicken thighs will take approximately 40 minutes, chicken breasts will need about 60 to 75 minutes depending on how big they are.

 

It is important to know how long to bake chicken in order to eliminate any chance of foodborne illnesses. Chicken should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165° F. I always use an Instant Read Thermometer, even though there are other methods of checking for doneness. The benefit of an instant read thermometer is you get a fast and accurate reading which lets you know that your meat has reached a safe temperature, but it is never overcooked. Over cooking chicken and other meats  will result in dry, tough meat that is certainly not appetizing.

I love the versatility of this chicken recipe. You can choose to have either baked chicken thighs or baked chicken breast, whichever you prefer. In fact, baked chicken recipes like this are meant to be adapted to suit your own family’s tastes and preferences. Try substituting cream of celery or cream of mushroom soup for the cream of chicken soup and you will get an entirely different taste. Experiment with your favorite seasonings and make the dish your own.

I usually use two cans of condensed soup and mix cream of chicken with cream of celery. This gives us enough of the gravy/sauce to put over mashed potatoes or rice. You can also mix a little of the soup mixture (after it has been combined with the spices and water) with some rice. Place the rice in the bottom of the baking dish, place the chicken on top and then pour the rest of the soup mixture over the chicken. This bakes up into a delicious and simple chicken and rice casserole.

One of our favorite ways to serve these creamy baked chicken breasts is with fingerling potatoes. We’ve added homemade foccacia and steamed broccoli to this dinner as well.
