My parents’ friend Judy made this chicken for them several years ago, and they loved it, so much that my mom made it when I was home from college for a break. I fell in love with it as well. It reminds me of a dish I made in a French cooking class at our local grocery store many years ago. Although this recipe is much more Americanized, it’s still delicious. Plus, it’s super easy to make.

I know some people have issues about cooking with canned soup, but I don’t! For lack of a better name, we call it Judy’s Chicken, even though I’m sure she acquired the recipe from someone else. I usually halve this recipe and make 2 chicken breasts. Sometimes I’ll make the same amount of sauce for the full recipe to have a bunch left over for rice – I love sauce! I served this over brown rice and with Haricots Verts.
