My husband taught me this recipe, which is amazing because he can't cook anything that doesn't go in the microwave. This recipe is almost that easy, and is quite tasty to boot. This preparation excludes the mushrooms which are supposed to go into it because I'm retarded and forgot to get them at the grocery store.

In addition to what I've posted here, I've heard of some people adding wine to this. Mostly I hear people add a dry white wine, but my mother-in-law adds a red.


  • 2lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 18oz container of Sour Cream (Reduced Fat or Regular, doesn't matter)
  • 2 cans of Cream of Mushroom soup (I wouldn't recommend the reduced fat kind here)
  • White Pepper
  • 8 oz of sliced mushrooms (missing from photo)
  • White Rice (I think long grain works best)

1Ingredients mnemosyne.jpg


Preheat your oven to 350F.

Locate an oven-safe baking dish and dump the sour cream and cream of mushroom soup into it. 1Stepone mnemosyne.jpg

Sprinkle approximately 1/4 tsp white pepper on top. Add the mushrooms that I forgot to get. Now stir it together thoroughly. 1Steptwo mnemosyne.jpg

Now for the chicken. You can plop the chicken breasts in here whole if you like. I prefer to cut mine up for faster cooking. Either way, lay the chicken in the bowl. 1Stepthree mnemosyne.jpg

Now stir a little, basically pushing the chicken under the sauce. You want the chicken to be mostly covered with sauce. Cover the bowl loosely with foil and stick it in the oven. 1Stepfourjpg mnemosyne.jpg

Cooking time depends on whether or not you cut the chicken up. If you cut the chicken up, it takes about 40 minutes. Whole chicken breasts take more like 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes. When you suspect it might be done, just fish out the thickest piece of chicken and cut it open. If it's still pink inside, toss it back in. That should go without saying.

While the chicken is cooking, make your rice.

When the chicken and rice are done, lay a bed of rice down on a plate. Put some pieces of chicken on top and spoon the sauce over it all. 1Finishedproduct mnemosyne.jpg
