Baked chicken legs with cream of mushroom is a delicious and comforting dish. Here’s a simple recipe for you to try:
Ingredients: 4 chicken legs Salt and pepper to taste 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 onion, finely chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced 8 oz (about 225g) mushrooms, sliced 1 can (10.5 oz) cream of mushroom soup 1/2 cup chicken broth 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1/2 cup heavy cream Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
Instructions: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Season the chicken legs with salt and pepper. In a large oven-safe skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken legs on all sides, then transfer them to a plate and set aside. In the same skillet, add chopped onions and garlic. Sauté until the onions are softened. Add sliced mushrooms to the skillet and cook until they release their moisture and become golden brown. Stir in the cream of mushroom soup, chicken broth, and dried thyme. Mix well to combine.
Return the browned chicken legs to the skillet, spooning some of the mushroom mixture over them. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for about 40-45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). Remove the skillet from the oven and stir in the heavy cream. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper if needed. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
Serve the baked chicken legs with cream of mushroom over rice, pasta, or mashed potatoes for a hearty and delicious meal. Enjoy!
