Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min. + freezing
- 8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 3 tablespoons olive oil

- Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Brown chicken in batches, uncovered, on both sides until a thermometer reads 170g;. Remove chicken; keep warm. Add mushrooms and onion to skillet; cook until golden, 8-10 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.

Simmer, uncovered, until heated through. Serve with noodles or rice. If desired, sprinkle with halved ripe olives and parsley.
- Freeze option: Using a slotted spoon, remove four chicken breast halves and half of vegetables to a greased 2-1/2-qt. baking dish. Pour half of wine mixture over chicken in dish. Cool and freeze for up to 3 months. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Bake, covered, at 350° until heated through, 35-40 minutes. Serve with noodles or rice, adding olives and parsley if desired.

Really enjoyed this dish. I started the veggies before adding the chicken because boneless chicken doesn't need to cook as long as the total time listed. I thought the bisque was a little too sweet, but hubby and I definitely liked this dish. Will make again, thanks for sharing!

A most awesome dish , nice rich sauce and lots of flavor . I don't rate many dishes 5 star but this is one of them

Excellent. I have made this dish for company twice and everyone raves about it. I also like the fact that it can be made in advance and frozen. This recipe is a definite keeper.

I found the sauce rather sweet so I added a bit of balsamic vinegar to cut the sweetness. Also my husband suggested adding a little cream to it to mellow out the taste. The overall effect was wonderful. Everyone of my picky eaters went back for seconds!

I generally do not use soups in recipes but in the case of this one, especially if you don't like sweet soups, use Amy's Organic Chunky Tomato Bisque (and if you can find the low sodium variety, so much the better). The soup is intensely flavored and not at all sweet, perfect for this recipe and much healthier.

the bisque is about the same as regular tomato soup except that it has small pieces of tomato in it. Tastes pretty close on the amount of sugar

Can anyone tell me if condensed tomato bisque soup is sweet, like regular tomato soup? This recipe looks good, but I dislike sweet tomato sauce. Thanks!

I have made this 3 times so far and even have batch in the freezer. I just brought this to the home of a relative who had just had surgery. The whole family including two picky teenagers devoured it! Success. Super easy but tastes like it took hours and freezes very well. If frozen, add fresh parsley and the sliced olives just before serving.
