I threw this together rather spontaneously tonight with things at hand. It’s a pretty simple thing, probably can be the basis for something even better-er.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. heat oven to 350&degF;

  2. cut up chicken into bite-sized pieces

  3. cut up broccoli into bite-sized pieces

  4. sauté chicken, sprinkling with monterey chicken seasoning, salt and pepper

  5. when chicken is part-way done, add drained can of mushroom pieces

  6. mix together cream of mushroom soup, thyme, sage, and dry mustard

  7. put broccoli, chicken, mushrooms, soup and spice mix, and half the can of french fried onions in a casserole dish

  8. add the parmesan cheese {-and white wine-}

  9. mix thoroughly

  10. cook at 350&degF; for 30-40 minutes, covered

  11. sprinkle remaining onion rings on top and cook uncovered an additional 15 minutes

Okay, this didn’t turn out quite as well as I’d hoped. Everyone agreed it tasted good, but it wasn’t very spectacular. It may have cooked too long as the broccoli was rather overdone. Next time I think I’ll try green beans instead of broccoli. Also, the spicing wasn’t quite right. Given the salt content of the canned soup and the onion rings, no additional salt needed to be added. The Thyme and Sage didn’t really work too well either, perhaps they needed more time to bloom effectively.

I think the wine is what made this recipe not work. Suggestion to omit from recipe and provide a wine sauce to add upon serving.

Variations

Here are the alterations I’d make:
