This easy chicken bake recipe makes your everyday dinner a great moment better and comfy.
4 large chicken breast filets, skinned and deboned
1 garlic clove, smashed (or 1tsp garlic powder)
½ tsp sweet paprika
2 tbsp white wine
3 tbsp unsalted butter
1 medium onion, chopped
8oz/210g fresh cremini mushroom, or mushroom of choice, sliced (or can)
1 can condensed chicken soup (10 ½ oz/298g, or homemade)
1 can condensed mushroom soup (10 ½ oz/298g, or homemade)
½ cup heavy cream or half-and-half
4 tbsp chives, chopped
Salt and pepper
Butter to grease baking dish
1 – Preheat oven to 420ºF/medium/200ºC for about 10 minutes.
2 – Meanwhile, arrange chicken breasts on a baking dish. Season it with half garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, and wine rest for about 10 minutes.
3 – Bake chicken breasts uncovered for about 20 minutes until firm outside, but not completely cooked inside.
4 – In the meantime, heat butter, stir in garlic, onion, salt, and pepper. When fragrant, add mushrooms and mix until liquid evaporates. Add both condensed cream soups and the double cream, stirring constantly until it boils and thickens. Add chives, season again with salt and pepper. Rest aside.
5 – Pour sauce on chicken breast and bake for about 30 more minutes, until chicken is cooked through (insert a knife blade to test for doneness or use a cooking thermometer – 165Fº/ Cº) and cream thickens, bubbles, and lightly browns.
You can make this easy creamy chicken bake recipe with thicker cream sauce, BUT in this case, you don’t need to add water.
