Chicken Thighs Surprise

Chicken Thighs Surprise


"This recipe was one of those great surprises you invent by throwing everything you have in the house together. It is a very versatile recipe in that you can substitute any chicken parts for the thighs, use whatever vegetables and herbs you have in the house, or any cheese you prefer. I have used broccoli when I have no zucchini on hand, and added dill when I have some of that. Any way you make it, it is an easy weeknight meal that has a sauce that is delicious over rice."

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the squash, eggplant, mushrooms, onion and garlic. Cook and stir for about 5 minutes, until lightly browned. Transfer to a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the condensed soup, chicken broth, garlic salt and pepper. Pour half of this mixture over the vegetables. Place chicken thighs over the top of the vegetables, and sprinkle with Swiss cheese. Pour the rest of the soup over all.
  4. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.

Excellent recipe! I didn't use mushrooms and subbed zucchini for the squash, it was delicious! We served it with angel hair pasta since it was nice and saucy. I will make this one again!

Made this in my slow cooker the first time - really bad idea, ended up with slop! Second time followed recipe more closely, i did add more vegies. I added 2 cans of soup (1 chicken, 1 corn) al...
