Luscious Lemon Chicken

The following is a super quick and thrifty recipe that I quite enjoy. Yes, it involves cream of whatever soup. On the other hand, very easy, nice warm fall meal without being too much. I generally serve with white rice. From a recipe card in my great grandmother’s box. I confess that after browning, I toss it in the oven and bake at 350 instead of cooking over low heat. I am much better at baking than simmering on the stovetop. This a little saucy but not so much that the children look at it with suspicion.

Luscious Lemon Chicken

2 pounds chicken parts
2 tablespoons shortening
1 can Campbell’s Cream of Chicken Soup
1 tablespoon lemon juice (I tend to use 2 T. just because I like the extra lemony flavor)
1/2 teaspoon paprika

In skillet, brown chicken in shortening. Pour off fat. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover cook over low heat 45 minutes or until tender. Stir occasionally. 4 servings.


  1. Looks nice and simple and tasty. Great for a fast meal night!

  2. I don’t mind using soups when coking. It makes life easy so well worth it. I do try to use low-sodium.

    How long in the 350 oven? 45 minutes?

  3. My mother used to make something very similar to this and I always loved it!

  4. Probably around 45 minutes Vered. It depends on whether the oven is warm already.

    Thanks Janine and Kalyn.
