I have frequently served this chicken to my single friends who don't like to cook for themselves. It always gets rave reviews.


  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-1/2 to 4 pounds), cut up
  • 2 cups sliced onions
  • 4 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash paprika
  • Hot cooked rice, optional


  1. Pour melted butter into an ungreased 13x9-in. baking dish; set aside. Place flour in a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time; shake to coat. Place chicken, skin side down, in baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 30 minutes. Turn chicken pieces; bake and additional 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, saute onions and mushrooms in a nonstick skillet until tender. In a bowl, combine next five ingredients. Drain and discard chicken drippings. Cover chicken with onions, mushrooms and the soup mixture. Sprinkle with paprika. Reduce heat to 325° Cover and bake 20 minutes or until juices run clear. Serve over rice if desired.

    Fantastic! Made my own homemade condensed mushroom soup and followed your recipe. Only used 3 thighs, and rice. There was nothing left so I thing I need to make more gravy. Flavor was outstanding and will be making again. Thanks

    Delicious! The chicken had a nice crispy coating, the gravy was very good over mashed potatoes!

    This is a simple recipe to make, I used chicken portions. My family loves it and I have served it to company. We like it with mashed potatoes
