Ingredients

chicken & marinade-

Cream Mixture-

  • 26 oz cream of chicken soup can, family size
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp table salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground paprika
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Toppings-

  • 8 oz bacon, 1/2 pack, cooked
  • 6 oz mushrooms, sliced and sauteed
  • 6 oz shredded cheese, four cheese or mozzarella
  • oil for frying

Instructions

  • Cut chicken breast into medium pieces (About 6-7 pieces per chicken). 
  • Prepare the marinade. Combine the milk, eggs and salt. Place the chicken pieces into the mixture and let marinade 4 hours (or overnight).The longer it marinades, the softer the chicken will become.
  • Combine the ingredients for the flour mixture; the flour, paprika, pepper and salt.
  • Take the chicken from the marinade and coat generously in the flour mixture. (Discard of the marinade.)
  • Add enough oil to the skillet to completely cover the bottom of the skillet, turn on med/high heat. Once the oil is hot, fry 6-8 minutes, until chicken is crispy, turning as needed. Don't crowd the skillet. (Using two skillets works quicker.)
  • While chicken is frying prepare the cream mixture; combine cream of chicken soup, sour cream, water, salt, paprika and pepper.
  • Once chicken cooks, transfer onto a plate lined with paper towel. 
  • Cover the bottom of a 9"x13" dish with some of the cream.
  • Add the chicken pieces to the casserole dish. 
  • Completely cover with the remaining cream. (If preparing the night before and will be cooking it the following day, wait for the chicken to cool before covering with the cream.)
  • Add half of the cheese. Add the cooked bacon and sauteed mushrooms. Sprinkle remaining cheese. 
  • Bake 350° for 30 minutes, covered with foil. Remove foil and continue baking another 15-20 minutes until cheese melts and cream bubbles everywhere.
