Chicken and Forget It!

After the fantastic steak dinner, slave thought you might like another wonderful tasting meal that is so easy to fix, it is nearly illegal! The beauty of this creation is that you make a different dinner every time by choosing different cans of condensed soup, depending on what strikes your fancy.

For this evenings feast, slave chose Cream of Chicken soup with mushrooms (mushroom soup works just as well) and Tomato Bisque, (tomato also works). Just stand in front of the soups at the store and pick two. Even chicken noodle soup will work, it is your choice. Can slave make it any easier?

About 2 lbs of chicken (slave used 1.5 lbs of skinless thighs) Again Your choice
2 medium yellow onions, sliced thinly
2 cans of condensed soup (Chicken with Mushrooms & Tomato Bisque)
½ can of half & half (milk will also work)
seasoning to taste if you like

Pre heat the oven to 300 degrees. (called a “slow oven”)
BE sure to place a large pan on a rack below to catch any drips or messes.

Peal the onions and carefully slice on a mandolin, using the handle!
Put them in a big bowl and fluff them with your fingers.

Spray the oven proof baking dish and spread the chicken on the bottom.

Distribute the onion over that.

Now in the same bowl you had the onion in, use a wooden spoon to dish out the two soups, why dirty another bowl? Slowly add the half & half.

Notice how slave laid the whisk on its side and twisted it to blend the soups without slopping it over the sides.

Give it a taste test and add any seasonings you feel would improve the mixture, like some sage, or herbs de Provance, or smoked red pepper flakes, whatever.

Pour this down the center of the dish, it will flow to both sides. If it needs any help - smooth with that wooden spoon. Cover tightly with foil and let bake for 1 and a half hours. Remove the foil and continue to bake for another 30 mins. Or so. You can check the chicken with an instant read thermometer. It should read at least 150 degrees.

Remove the dish and let sit for about 7 minutes. This gives you time to zap a nice green vegetable to go as a side. Or if you like: fix some mashed potatoes, or rice, or even noodles, the gravy is fantastic!

At the last minute slave decided to serve this over angle hair pasta.

Here is some great music for the night.
Just love to serve my Master Indy!
