Mushroom & Carrot Chicken Dinner

Today's recipe will use the most magical flavour of condensed soup you've ever set your eyes on... Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup! Its flavour is pretty diverse and can serve as a base in many sauces, which makes it perfect for what were going to cook up!

  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I'm down to 27 now!)
  • Carrots (2 large)
  • Mushrooms (1 small quart)
  • Rice (1 1/2 cup) or Pasta (match servings to number of chicken breasts)
  • Campbell's mushroom soup (1 can)
  • Oil (1-2 tbsp.)
  • Butter (2 tsp.)
  • Milk (1/4 cup)
  1. Chop your veggies. You want to cut the carrots into matchsticks (after peeling of course). Slice the mushrooms. Set aside.
  2. Put some oil in a LARGE non-stick frying pan. Turn heat to medium.
  3. Prepare a small pot with water for the rice / pasta.
  4. Spread the oil around when its hot, and put the chicken breasts in the pan.
  5. Start boiling the rice / pasta. Add 1 tsp of butter, and stir occasionally.
  6. Fry the chicken breasts, flipping every so often until they're cooked through. You can test by cutting them if you're not sure.
  7. When the chicken is 3/4 done, start preparing the sauce. In a medium/large sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Empty contents of mushroom soup can, add the milk, and add the carrots. Whisk every 3-4 minutes.
  8. When the chicken is done, you may turn off the heat, and set aside.
  9. Let the sauce simmer for 10 minutes or until carrots are beginning to become tender, then add the mushrooms and add the chicken breasts. Simmer for 4-5 more minutes.
  10. Check the rice. When it's finished, turn it off and remove it from the heat.
  11. Check the sauce, the carrots and mushrooms should be tender. Turn off the heat when veggies are tender, or at your desired consistency.
  12. Layer the rice on serving dishes, and place a chicken breast on each serving. Cover with sauce.
  13. Serve.
PS. I'm looking for a better name for this. If anybody can think of one I'd love to hear it...
