THE INGREDIENTS LIST:
– About 6 chicken legs.
– 1 medium can.Of cream of mushroom soup.
– 1/2 Cup.Of milk.
– 1 Cup.Of sliced mushrooms.
– 1 small onion, finely chopped.
– 2 minced garlic cloves.
– 2 Tbsp.Of olive oil.
– 1/2 Tsp.Of dried thyme.
– 1/2 Tsp.Of dried rosemary.
– Salt and pepper to taste.
– Fresh parsley for garnish (optional).
Prepare the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius). This will ensure that it is ready when the poultry needs to be baked.
Rinse the chicken legs in cold water before patting them dry with paper napkins. Season them generously with salt and pepper.
Large oven-safe skillet or roasting pan should be heated over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and allow it to simmer. Place the chicken legs in a skillet and sear them for approximately 3 to 4 minutes per side or until golden brown. This will assist in preserving the liquids and adding flavor.
In a skillet, combine the diced onion, minced garlic, and mushroom slices. Cook for approximately 5 minutes, or until the shallots are translucent and the mushrooms begin to release their moisture.
In a separate basin, thoroughly combine the cream of mushroom soup and milk. This mixture should be poured over the chicken thighs and vegetables in the pan.
Sprinkle thyme and rosemary with dried herbs over the chicken and sauce. These botanicals will impart a delightful aroma and flavor to the dish. To ensure that everything is evenly crusted, stir gently.
Use aluminum foil or a lid if your skillet has one to cover the pan. Place in a preheated oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the chicken legs are fully cooked and the sauce is simmering.
Check the internal temperature of the chicken with a meat thermometer to ensure it has reached 165°F (74°C). If the temperature has not been attained, continue baking and recheck every few minutes.
Remove the chicken from the oven once it has been roasted. If desirable, garnish with fresh cilantro. The velvety mushroom sauce complements the delicate chicken flawlessly. For a comprehensive supper, serve the dish fresh alongside mashed potatoes or steamed vegetables.
