This is revised from a recipe I cut out of a magazine ages ago. It's one of our favorites and this recipe makes enough for two nights plus a lunch or two. As with many of "my" recipes the ingredient amounts can be changed. Don't like mushrooms? Leave them out. Really like mushrooms? Go crazy and double the amount. Want more chicken? Add another chicken chest. Etc. Also, the tomato soup part of the recipe can be changed any number of ways - I've made it with diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste and water, condensed tomato soup and water, etc. Sometimes we like to eat this as a soup rather than over rice/noodles and thats when we use tomato juice for the liquid - and we add more than a quart (To make it "soupier".)
- 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped into bite-sized pieces
- 1 tablespoon olive oil or 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 large onion, peeled and sliced into rings about 1/3 inch thick
- 2 garlic cloves, peeled, smashed and diced
- 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
- 1 quart tomato soup
- 6 -8 zucchini, sliced into 1/3 inch rounds
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- In a large dutch-oven pan, heat the Olive oil over medium-high heat.
- Add sliced onion, stir and cook until onions become limp and translucent. Adjust heat so they don't burn.
- Add garlic and stir.
- Add chopped chicken and stir again.
- Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken looks mostly done.
- Add zucchini and dried basil.
- Stir in the tomato soup.
- Cook for approximately 30 minutes - until zucchini is soft (but still slightly crunchy) and chicken is done (Remove one of the larger chicken bites and cut to make sure it isn't pink inside.).
- Taste for seasoning and add salt if needed.
- Serve over cooked brown or white rice or pasta.
