Don’t fear the pan roast!  Quick Mushroom Chicken Bake is basically pan-roasted, which is cooked both on the stove and in the oven.  Why?  Because the stovetop browns the outside of the chicken for the best flavor, but the even heat of the oven cooks it the rest of the way so it stays moist and tender inside.  It doesn’t take any longer- this creamy chicken cooks in just 30 minutes!  The condensed cream of mushroom soup and Parmesan cheese bake into a delicious sauce on top, making Quick Mushroom Chicken Bake one of the best ways to prepare chicken!

  • Step 1Heat the oven to 350°F.   While the oven is heating, season the chicken with salt and pepper.  Heat the oil in a 12-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook for 6 minutes or until browned on both sides (to prevent sticking- make sure the skillet and oil are hot before adding the chicken). Remove the chicken from the skillet.
  • Step 2Add the mushrooms and garlic to the skillet and cook for 2 minutes or until the mushrooms are lightly browned.  Stir in the soup, milk, 1/4 cup cheese and the thyme.  Season to taste.  Return the chicken to the skillet (if the chicken released any juices, add those, too).  Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  • Step 3Bake for 20 minutes or until the chicken is done.  Serve with hot cooked rice, if desired.

Chicken Casserole

Remember those classic casserole recipes we ate as kids? You know those ones where mom would open up a few cans of good ol’ Campbell’s creamy soup, mix it up with some chicken and noodles in a casserole dish and bake the whole delicious mess together? It was simple cooking and everyone always loved it.

I rarely make these types of recipes…they probably are not the healthiest. But every now and then I crave a throwback comfort meal. Even more so, I crave a one dish dinner that takes little thought and effort and that the whole family gobbles up. This recipe has all the charm of an old-fashioned favorite without all the cream.

Watch how fast this comes together!

Place 6 boneless chicken breasts in a casserole dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss in a pack or two of sliced mushrooms. I love mushrooms so I use 2 packs of baby bellas.

Top it with 1 can of Campbell’s Golden Mushroom Soup and some water mixed in the soup can. If you desire a bit more sauce, try doubling the soup. You can’t go wrong!

If you are indulging and feeding a hungry crew, go ahead and try this with some egg noodles or even a baked potato. The sauce is so tasty, warm and comforting!

Our pieces of chicken are so enormous tonight so I’m pairing them with a little brown rice and some steamed asparagus. Pretty sure the kids all had a spoon in hand ready to scoop up the sauce.

A bowl of chicken and mushroom soup on a table with fresh herbs

There’s nothing quite like a warming bowl of soup in the cooler months. And this chicken and mushroom soup with cream is a real belly-warmer! With a rich aroma and bold mushroom flavourthis is a soup you will want to eat all winter long.

There’s not a lot of prep work involved in making this dish and everything is ready in just 30 minutes (and that’s mostly hands-off time!). Perfect for busy nights or when you need something cosy and comforting with minimal effort. A complete meal on its own, you can also pair it with some fresh crusty bread, grilled cheese sandwiches or savoury scones or muffins for an extra filling meal.

Mushrooms are one of my favourite ingredients to cook with. Their flavour is so rich and earthy and they add a powerhouse of flavour and depth to recipes like this chicken and mushroom risotto or pasta dishes, as well as this deliciously creamy soup.

And if the cooler weather has hit and you need more warming soup recipes, try this broccoli and cauliflower soup or potato and leek soup or basically anything from this collection of soup recipes!


  • Quick and easy – made in 30 minutes from start to finish, it’s so quick, easy and a great recipe to use up leftover chicken in your fridge.
  • So creamy – made with thick cream, it has a lovely creamy and silky texture.
  • Great for meal prepping – you can make this ahead of time for weekday lunches or to reheat for dinner. You can also freeze it in batches.
  • Filling – the perfect meal for hungry bellies. Serve it as a starter, or as a main with crusty buttered bread if you’re extra hungry!


  • Browning the mushrooms well in the pan before adding the stock gives the soup plenty of flavour.
  • You can use any kind of mushrooms. If using dried mushrooms, they need to be soaked in hot water first, before cooking as normal.
  • The easiest and fastest option is to use rotisserie chicken from the supermarket. But if you don’t have any, you can poach 2 large chicken breasts to add to the soup.
  • To poach chicken breasts, remove the chicken from the fridge 30 minutes before using. Place enough water in a saucepan to cover the chicken breasts and bring to the boil. Once boiling, add the chicken. Cover with a lid and bring back to the boil. Once boiling, remove the pot from the heat and set aside for 30 minutes, with the lid on. Then, use 2 forks to shred the chicken before adding it to the soup.
  • Add more or less cream to your liking.
  • Topping suggestions – top the chicken and mushroom soup with some crunchy homemade croutonsshaved parmesan cheese, a few drops of olive oilfresh parsley or thyme and/or some extra browned mushrooms.
  • Storage – store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. This soup can also be frozen – see FAQs.


Can I freeze this chicken and mushroom soup?

Yes! This soup freezes and reheats beautifully. Be sure to cool the soup completely before freezing. Then store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months in either individual serves, or as a whole batch. Thaw and reheat as needed.

Should chicken be cooked before adding it to soup?

To ensure that your soup remains safe to eat, I recommend using ready-cooked chicken like rotisserie chicken or poached chicken. Add it to the soup at the end, and cook until it is fully heated through. If you don’t have cooked chicken, see my notes on poaching above in Expert Tips.
