23 Easy Recipes Using Cream of Chicken Soup
1. Creamy Herb Chicken
Tender chicken cutlets covered in a blanket of creamy white sauce is pure decadence.
Just looking at this dish, you can already tell it’s phenomenal.
The sauce – a combination of cream of chicken, sour cream, and milk – is undeniably rich and creamy.
Herbs, spices, and a splash of lemon juice are added to dial it down a little, resulting in a well-balanced flavor and perfect consistency.
As the sauce is thick like gravy, this dish is best chased with starchy sides, such as rice, pasta, and mashed potatoes.
2. Creamy Chicken Bake
If you’re allergic to dry chicken breasts, I feel you. I refuse to take a bite of sad, dull, and rubbery meat!
Thanks to this chicken bake recipe, you’ll never have to worry about tough chicken breast again.
Baked in a creamy sauce, this casserole turns out tender, juicy, and moist 100% of the time.
3. Creamy Chicken Enchiladas
Give classic enchiladas some extra oomph with cream of chicken soup!
This recipe is perfect if you’re not too fond of spicy food.
Instead, the thick soup does a fine job toning down the salsa’s heat, resulting in a nice balance of flavors.
The best part? This recipe only calls for six ingredients, and I’m pretty sure you already have all of them on hand.
