  • 1 can (10.5 oz) cream of chicken soup
  • 1 package (1 oz) dry onion soup mix
  • 1 box (6 oz) Stove Top stuffing mix, prepared according to package directions

Instructions

Step 1: Prepare the Chicken

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Place Chicken in Baking Dish: Arrange the chicken breasts in a single layer in a greased 9×13-inch baking dish.

Step 2: Add the Soup and Onion Mix

  2. Sprinkle Onion Soup Mix: Sprinkle the dry onion soup mix evenly over the soup-covered chicken.

Cooking Notes and Tips

  • Chicken: If your chicken breasts are very thick, you may want to cut them in half lengthwise to ensure even cooking.
  • Stuffing: For added flavor, prepare the stuffing mix with chicken broth instead of water.
  • Soup: Cream of mushroom soup can be used as a substitute for cream of chicken soup if preferred.
