Chicken and Veggies in Cream of Mushroom Soup

Easy To Cook Recipe For Busy Working Moms: Chicken and Veggies in Cream of Mushroom Soup

I’ve been sharing some of my recipes for a while. Though I am not that great with cooking and food presentation, I strive into trying new or experimental recipes. Those of which I don’t use instructions I usually find online.

This recipe are one those come what may dishes. Though I know there may be a lot of dishes out there with the same concept as this one, I am still happy that it turned out well.

I love chicken and I love creamy dishes! So I combined it and voila! Another successful cooking I may say. 🙂


I strive into making dishes that are hearty and healthy so that my almost 1 year old son can eat it as well. It saves me time and energy rather than preparing his food separately or opting for cerelac. Hehe. It’s just a personal choice.

For the mommies who are out of ideas on what to cook for dinner, you find my recipe helpful. Here’s what you need:

  • 2 to 4 pieces of Magnolia Boneless Chicken Breast, cut into cubes
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 to 4 cloves of garlic, diced
  • 1 can of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 medium-sized carrot, cubed
  • 1 medium-sized potato, cubed
  • 1 broccoli, blanched
  •  1 tbsp Basil Leaves
  • Salt and Pepper


In a wok, saute garlic, onion, potatoes and carrots. Then put the chicken breast cubes. When potatoes and chicken are slightly brown, pour 1 – 1 1/2 cups of water and let it simmer for 10-12 minutes.


Pour in next 1 cup of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup then let it simmer for another 5-8 minutes in low-medium heat. Salt and Pepper to taste. Sprinkle basil leaves for some finishing touch. Enjoy!


This dish yields: 2-3 persons.

Preparation time: 20-30 minutes

Creamy Pasta with Ham and Broccoli

There are days when I feel adventurous and energetic in the kitchen that I end up with experimental dishes. I cook with no recipes on-hand and step-by-steps to follow. I just think of what the output of the dish should be and get on with it.

Yesterday was one of those days. I cooked Creamy Pasta with Ham and Broccoli. What actually brought me into cooking this dish is the fact that I have to consume the broccoli already before it goes bad or rotten in our vegetable compartment. Broccoli has a short shelf life and I don’t want to be wasting money since it is expensive here in the city! 😦

Cream based pastas are actually easy to make. And I love creamy dishes that’s why I love how this experimental dish end up. I was tensed while cooking it. Good thing it went well.

How to cook Creamy Pasta with Ham and Broccoli

What you need:

500g pasta
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 tbsp of vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
4 slices of ham (I used CDO sliced ham for this recipe), cut into small squares
1 small brocolli, blanched and chopped
Salt and pepper
Chopped Basil Leaves
Chili flakes, if preferred
1 can of Jolly Cream of Mushroom


  1. Cook the pasta in boiling water with salt and a tablespoon of vegetable oil.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat another pan with 1 tbsp of olive oil.
  3. Cook the chopped onion for a minute then put in the ham. Let it cook for 5 minutes (or if you prefer it a bit toasted, you may do so) in medium heat.
  4. Pour a can of Jolly Cream of Mushroom and let it simmer for 10 minutes in low-medium heat.
  5.  Put the chopped broccoli florets into the sauce and cover for a minute or 2, then add in chopped basil leaves and chili flakes.
  6. Salt and Pepper to taste.
  7. Toss in the cooked Pasta on the creamy sauce. Serve while hot.


Simple and easy, right?

I overestimated the amount of serving and it is way too much for me and my husband, so I shared it also to my in-laws. This recipe serves 3-5 pax already. Happy cooking and eating! 🙂
