Place enough cooking oil in oven-proof skillet to cover the bottom of pan and maybe a little extra. Heat the skillet to hot enough to brown a sprinkle of flour when added to it. Be heating oven to 350.
Pat the chicken dry, dip the chicken in the flour, coat well on both sides, add salt and pepper. Place chicken in hot skillet and brown on both sides.
When chicken is golden brown on both sides, add canned mushrooms and soup. Cover skillet and place in oven for about 1 hour. Comes out beautifully tender and with an amazing mushroom gravy. Serve with potatoes, rice, or noodles.
