It doesn't get much easier than this! If desired you could add a can of whole or sliced mushrooms to the recipe. I like to add in 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese to the soup mixture, also if desired you can sprinkle grated cheddar cheese on top the last 5 minutes of baking, and brown the breasts in butter firstly and reduce cooking time slighty.

I think 1/2 cup of milk/water/or half & half is too much. I made this dish last night (with half & half) and it was delicious, but more runny than I would've liked. Also, I substituted the cream of mushroom soup with cream of broccoli (I hate mushrooms!)and it was so good! Pairs well with mashed potatoes or stuffing, and steamed broccoli.
Delicious and very very easy. The chicken was super-tender. Didn't have half & half, so I used buttermilk instead. I stirred chopped onions into the soup mixture before topping the chicken. Next time I'm going to try mixing in a little broccoli too. Yum!
Simplicity is the key here! You get a lot of tender, juicy chicken for a very little effort. I had all the ingredients on hand to make this dish. Even after a full day of putting away Christmas decorations and completely exhausted I was still able to put this dish on the table in a flash. Thanks for a quick and delicious supper, Kittencal!
