      if u bread and fry ur chicken breasts until there almost done, then put them in a baking dish and pour cambells cream of chicken soup over it then bake it on 450 for about 20 to 30 mins omg its to die for. u can steam rice and put the chicken over it and then add the cream of chicken soup as well. its soooo yummy :] but for people who dont eat fried foods, u can do the same, u just have to bake it for about an hour or so. serve it up with mashed potatos green beans and corn, and gaaaawsh its amazing lmao. i think ill be making this for dinner tonite now xD
