Crazy Mother-In-Law Pleaser Cheesy Chicken

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by BigFatMomma

I made this for my MIL when I forgot to turn on the oven for the turkey roast...It was great!! This was a quick save, and the idea came from a dish she had prepared from a 60's vintage book. The original was more involved, but this tasted just as good.

This was so easy to just throw together. I made it exactly as the recipe states, and served it over rice with a salad. Comfort food. Thanks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Place chicken breasts in a glass 9" by 13" baking dish.
  3. In a bowl, mix the two cans of condensed soup with the can of chicken broth (I like to use the reduced fat/reduced salt type).
  4. Pour mixture into baking dish, around chicken.
  5. Sprinkle in the garlic powder, salt and pepper (or you can mix it into the broth mixture).
  6. Slice cheddar cheese 1/4 inch (or less) thick, and place slices over chicken breasts, covering as much as you can.
  7. Bake in preheated oven 50 minutes or until chicken is done (no longer pink).
  8. Prior to serving, (if desired) place slices of bread around the chicken to soak up the cheese/chicken sauce. Serve with rice, as suggested by the review--it's great this way!
