Recreate this retro meal with chicken thighs in fat free cream of mushroom soup, white wine, fresh mushrooms, scallions and Greek yogurt.
Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks is hosting a Retro Food Event so I whipped out the 1968 version of the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook to get some retro food inspiration and decided to experiment with my own version of the classic dish, Chicken Parisienne.
What is Chicken Parisienne?
Chicken Parisienne was popular back in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s as it was a really simple dish to make and was one of the more popular “canned soup” recipes of that time.
I remember eating something like this as a child, but since I was born in 1968, I don’t completely remember if this was the exact same way my Mom used to make it or not, but this was delicious!
How do you make Chicken Parisienne?
The original recipe calls for chicken (I’ve seen recipes for both boneless and bone-in), cream of mushroom soup, white wine and sour cream, but I changed it up just a bit.
My version of Chicken Parisienne uses skinless, bone-in chicken thighs, fat free cream of mushroom soup, white wine, fresh mushrooms and scallions, and Greek yogurt; then I sprinkled a little paprika on top to give it a little color.
Prep time on this dish is next to nothing too. Simply place your chicken in a casserole dish, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl, mix well and pour over the chicken; then bake until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is bubbling; approximately 1 hour.
Though I didn’t cook this in my slow cooker, I bet you could add all of the ingredients to the cooker and cook on low 6-8 hours or high 4-6 hours, but I would leave out the yogurt and add at the end before serving.
My family really liked this recipe for Chicken Parisienne and it makes enough sauce to pour over some rice or egg noodles as well. This recipe makes enough to serve 6-8 people; however, it freezes beautifully so go ahead and save some for another meal. ~Enjoy!
