Here’s what’s for dinner tonight. A basic, home-cooked meal using that staple in the pantry of every 1950’s housewife — condensed soup.
A discussion on the Campbell’s Soups Facebook page gave me the idea of mixing the two flavors used in this recipe.
Creamy Onion Chicken with Mashed Potatoes
1 can Cream of Onion Soup
1 can Cream of Chicken with Mushrooms
2-3 skinless chicken boneless breasts
Combine soup in crock pot, throw in chicken breasts. Turn on crock pot to desired setting and let simmer all day.
For the mashed potatoes, you need
3-4 large russet potatoes
1 cup milk or cream
The secret to great mashed potatoes is to boil the potatoes until they are falling apart. Mash well with masher or potato ricer. Combine melted butter with mashed potatoes. While mixing, add in milk or cream (you may need more or less milk or cream.) Another secret to great potatoes is to add more cream or milk than you think you need. Keep mashed potatoes on stove on low heat and let the ingredients sit. The potatoes will absorb the milk.
Serve the chicken alongside the potatoes and use the ‘gravy’ on your potatoes.
This is a wonderful comfort food that I think you will enjoy.
Serve with some fresh bread and your favorite vegetables for a great, easy meal.
