This creamy chicken and vegetables recipe is so easy to make you will want to make this one of your family favorites. All you need is a chicken and your favorite veggies.

Chicken leg quarters with mushrooms, carrots, and cauliflower!
The Chicken

You can use any chicken you have on hand. I usually have a lot of leg quarters in the freezer, but you can use chicken breasts, legs, thighs, and even wings. Just remember that wings cook faster than the other parts of the bird.


the vegetables

What are your favorite vegetables? Add them to the pan! You can use frozen or fresh veggies; again, it is what you have on hand.

Cauliflower, mushrooms, and carrots.

If you don’t know where to start, try a few of these:

  • onion
  • bell pepper
  • broccoli
  • cauliflower
  • carrots
  • mushrooms
  • brussel sprouts
The sauce

I have a love affair with cream of mushroom soup. It goes well with so many dishes, and I love the flavor. You already know what I’m going to say; what do you have on hand? If you don’t have cream of mushroom try these:

It is so much easier to stir the cream of mushroom, evaporated milk, and my seasonings in a bowl and then pour it over my vegetables.

Make sure when you pour your mixture, you get it over all your vegetables and stir thoroughly.

Add your chicken pieces back into your pan, and put them back in the oven for another 25-30 minutes. This succulent and savory entree goes well with rice,  cornbread dressing, mashed potatoes, or biscuits.

The finished masterpiece!
