Cream of Chicken Bake
One can of cream of chicken soup turns plain chicken into a perfect weeknight comfort food dish with this Cream of Chicken Bake. Tender chicken, sauteed onions, and black forest ham is covered and baked in a delicious sauce that is perfect for drizzling over buttery mashed potatoes.
When Michigan weather is giving us it’s best version of Frozen, to fight the cold I try to stay armed with comfort food classics like this Cream of Chicken Bake.
Since the sauce is made with a combination of cream of chicken soup and a few other ingredients, I thought that would be the best name for this. As the chicken bakes the soup, milk, garlic powder, and oregano make a delicious gravy that is perfect for topping on mashed potatoes, another comfort food favorite!
The melted cheese just tucks into every corner, the sweet onions, bites of ham all on top of tender chicken. I mean LOOK AT THIS! If this isn’t comfort food, I don’t know what it.
Speaking of cozy food, want more comfort food recipes to try?
How to make Cream of Chicken Bake:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Dice the ham and onions. Place the ham into a bowl and set aside.
Take some butter and add to a frying pan. Sautee until a light brown then remove them and place into a bowl.
While cooking the onion combine the flour, garlic powder and oregano to a plate. Split 3 chicken breasts so that they are now between 6-7 pieces.
To the same pan that the onion was cooked, add the olive oil. Dredge chicken in flour mixture then add to pan. Brown 2-3 minutes on each side. You will not cook these all the way through, this is just to brown the chicken so cook 2-3 minutes per side only.
Add the chicken to a greased dish.
Next, it’s time to make the sauce to pour over the chicken. In a bowl put the cream of chicken, milk, garlic powder, dried oregano, and Dijon mustard. Stir to combine completely.
Pour on top of the browned chicken in the prepared dish. Cover with onions and diced ham. DO NOT add the cheese at this time.
Cover with tin foil and bake for 30 minutes.
After the dish has baked for 30 minutes take it out of the oven and add the cheese.
Leave the foil off and put back into the oven for an additional 15 minutes.
Whip of some potatoes to pour the gravy on top of. And here you are…..
