This is another of my mom's chicken recipes that we really love. She called it "Chicken Surprise" because when she created it, the finished product came as a surprise to her. It's easy to put together and my kids always loved when I made it.

How to Make Mom's Chicken Surprise

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2Sprinkle half of dry onion soup mix in the bottom of a roasting pan. Place chicken pieces on it, pressing down. Sprinkle remainder of soup mix on top of the chicken.
  • 3In a separate bowl, whisk together the tomato soup and water, and then add the canned mushroom pieces with their liquid. If using fresh mushrooms, add 1/2 cup dry white wine. Add diced tomato and stir gently. Pour mixture around the chicken pieces being careful not to wash away the dry onion soup on the chicken.
  • 4Season everything with the garlic powder and oregano. I always add a bit of Penzey's poultry seasoning and their Sunny Paris spices. You can get them at www.penzeys.com or look for a store near you. No, I don't work for them.
  • 5Cook for approximately 1 hour. You'll have a lot of sauce, which I usually serve over rice or bow tie pasta.
