Cream of Chicken Soup

Cream of chicken soup and a good book is the perfect recipe for a rainy day. Homemade cream of chicken soup is a lighter version of the bottled version served in most American homes. It’s simple to make, but you have to cook it long enough to reduce the broth and concentrate the flavors.

The Creamy Classic

Based on data from the USDA, on average Americans eat more than 64 pounds of chicken per person a year. If you’re eating chicken on a regular basis, you may always be searching for new and innovative ways to prepare healthy protein.

But sometimes nothing beats a classic recipe like baked chicken with cream of chicken soup. Campbell’s Kitchen features a version of the recipe using the cream of mushroom soup, which inspired this simple recipe.


  • 1 1/4 pounds of skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) of condensed cream of chicken soup


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Place chicken in a 2-quart baking dish.

  4. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cream of Mushroom Chicken Casserole

If you’re searching for a chicken recipe that feels more like a complete meal, then the cream of mushroom chicken casserole may be the way to go. This casserole dish combines chicken, rice and cream of mushroom soup to create this one-dish meal. All you have to add are the veggies.

This recipe is also inspired by a cream of mushroom chicken and rice recipe featured on Campbell’s Kitchen and takes about an hour from prep to table.


  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup uncooked long-grain rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 1/4 pounds of skinless, boneless chicken breasts


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine the soup, water, rice and pepper in a 11x8x2-inch baking dish.
  3. Place chicken over soup and cover the dish with aluminum foil.

Healthier Baked Chicken Dish

Baked chicken with cream of chicken soup is a simple and tasty meal. But the canned soup used to create the creamy flavor is high in calories, fat and sodium. According to the USDA database, one can of condensed cream chicken soup has 274 calories, 18 grams of total fat and 2,140 milligrams of sodium.

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends limiting daily sodium intake to 2,300 milligrams a day. That one can of soup contains almost your entire daily limit, so you’d get a quarter of your daily sodium in just one serving of the chicken dish. Getting too much sodium in your diet increases your risk of high blood pressure and stroke. Cream of mushroom soup has slightly less sodium, with 1,834 milligrams per can, but it’s still excessive.

Instead of a cream of chicken soup recipe with chicken breast, create a healthy mushroom gravy by sauteeing sliced button mushrooms in oil over medium heat until soft, then add low-sodium chicken broth, chopped green onions, salt and pepper and bring to a boil and remove from heat. Pour your mushroom gravy over your chicken after it’s been in the oven for 15 minutes, then bake for another 15 minutes or until your chicken has reached 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

Chicken Estimates for Recipes

Aside from tacos and tortilla soup, innumerable dishes call for shredded chicken. The possibilities include chicken enchilada casserole, pasta dishes, chicken gumbo, barbecue chicken sandwiches, chicken pot pie, chicken chili and chicken stir-fry.

When a recipe calls for cooked chicken, how do you know how much chicken to buy and prepare? A cup of shredded or cubed chicken is roughly one chicken breast or 5 1/2 ounces of deboned chicken, says Texas A&M Agrilife Extension.

When using a whole chicken, each pound of uncooked chicken will render 1 cup of cooked, deboned chicken. For example, a 3-pound fryer will provide approximately 3 cups of cooked chicken.

Many people will pick up a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket to save time when they plan to make a recipe that calls for cubed or shredded chicken. On average, rotisserie chickens weigh about 2 pounds. This will supply 2 cups of white meat, and 1 cup of dark meat.

  • Oil: we used olive oil, you may use any other oil
  • Chicken: using chicken breast would be the leanest option as far using chicken. You may use boneless chicken thighs, steaks, salmon, or shrimp.
  • Cream: This mushroom chicken is made without any cream. Light cream cheese works great for this recipe. For a keto-friendly option, heavy cream or coconut milk would work great. 
  • Broth: Chicken or vegetable broth. If you don’t have any broth you can just use water.
  • Mushroom: mushroom is the highlight of this creamy chicken skillet. Other veggie options are broccoli, green beans, spinach, and zucchini.
