The ultimate in simplicity, this recipe calls for chicken and cream of chicken soup. Pair it with a salad, or roasted mixed vegetables for a colorful dinner. Even better, 2-step around the kitchen while it is heating up, getting some physical activity while you cook!

  • 2 Boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup (10 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup water

  3. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
  4. Stir the soup and water together in the skillet and heat it to a boil.

My family loves this - I put it in the crock pot and add carrots. Yummy served over brown rice.
