Chicken with ham sauce

4 chicken breast (about 2 pounds)
4 oz sliced cooked ham, cut into very thin strips
1 can cream of mushroom
8 oz sour cream
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
4 hot baked potatoes, or mashed potatoes

Put chicken in 9x13 pan and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Pour off any fat. Put the ham in the dish around the chicken. Stir the soup, sour cream, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, and pepper in a bowl. Spoon over chicken and bake for 30 minutes or until chicken is done. Remove chicken and stir remaining sauce to serve with the chicken and over the potatoes.

This was very good. The sauce was not as thick as I thought it would be, so next time I might put a small amount of flour in to help thicken it up. Also, for the ham, I just used luncheon meat ham, but next time I will try a ham steak cut-up to try and get a bit of the smoked taste in the sauce. But overall, it was very good. This recipe came from a Campbell's cookbook.


  1. Yum again!! I have a similar recipe, but you place the ham under the chicken, and you can also wrap each chicken breast in a piece of bacon (I use the pre-cooked kind). My recipe does not include sour cream, so I'm going to try this! Sounds great!

  2. This does sound really good. I'll have to try it some time when Russ is home.

  3. Lori, I made this yesterday for dinner and it was great! It's similar to another recipe I have, but the sour cream really adds a nice touch.
