How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°. Melt butter in oven in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish (about 3 minutes).

Step 2

Meanwhile, dip chicken in 1/2 cup buttermilk; sprinkle with pepper, and dredge in flour.

Step 3

Remove baking dish from oven. Add mushrooms and thyme. Arrange chicken, breast sides down, in baking dish.

Step 4

Bake at 425° for 25 minutes. Turn chicken, and bake 10 minutes.

Step 5

Stir together soup and remaining 1 cup buttermilk. Pour over chicken, and bake 10 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 165°, shielding chicken with aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning, if necessary.

Step 6

Transfer chicken to a serving platter. Whisk soup mixture in baking dish until blended, and drizzle over chicken.

Good solid recipe

I've made it several times for my family and have even taken it to families during a troubling time and receive many thanks a good compliments. I usually don't add the extra mushrooms just to make it a little more kid friendly, but it's wonderful. I serve with mashed potatoes and green beans and you've got some great comfort food. Thanks Southern Living! Got this out of one of your cookbooks years ago.

Absolutely one of our family favorites - and we often make this for guests as well. S.Living added mushrooms to this recently - we make it without and it's dreamy. No suggestions on additions or changes - it's wonderful & easy!

This is really good. I do not like the qualification given to the number of stars on this site. Something can be fantastic and yet still not appropriate for a "special occasion" or whatever. This is yummy, solid comfort food. It's not going to impress guests with a sophisticated palate, but that doesn't mean it's not delicious.

Easy everyday recipe but lacks on flavor. Needs some spicing up. Will make it again, with some alterations.

This is one of my go to recipes. It's soooo good I can't believe others haven't rated. I serve over whole grain pasta to soak up the sauce.
