Categories: chicken, dinner, not tried


  • 4-5 chicken breasts or 12 chicken breast tenders
  • fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 1 whole lemon
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup milk (whole or lowfat)
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt (I like Morten’s)
  • Salt to taste (especially with low sodium soup)


  1. In non stick pan, saute cleaned sliced mushrooms on medium heat in butter about 5 minutes, then set aside.

  2. Brown chicken in pan about 3 minutes on each side on medium low heat.

  3. Meanwhile, mix cream of mushroom soup, milk, oregano, celery salt and the squeeze of an entire lemon in a large bowl or Pyrex measuring cup. It helps to squeeze the lemon over a sifter to catch the seeds.

  4. Stir well and pour over chicken.

  5. Simmer on low for 25 minutes, then serve over rice, penne pasta or linguine.
