Creamy Buttermilk Baked Chicken Thighs

"I have also made this using 4 large bone-in chicken breasts both will work fine for this recipe, if desired you may add in a can of very well drained sliced mushrooms to the sauce, use only buttermilk for this regular milk will not produce the same flavor ---serve with with cooked rice, this is very good!"

    Made this with mashed potatoes and green beans. It was ok. Not a big fan off all the cheese in it. And all the grease in the pan kinda turned me off to it. Just looks really unhealthy!!!! Sorry! Not to mention the calorie count.

    Kit you have another winner here, this is another one of my favorite chicken recipes, didn't change a thing, the sauce is so delicious, thank Kitty.

    I used low sodium soup, and followed the easy to follow directions. I did leave out the cayenne because my granddaughter was here and I was afraid she would turn her nose up if she tasted it at all. The chicken was nice and moist and real tasty, and we loved it with the sauce. You can bet this will be made often!!! Thanks Kitten!
