Baked chicken legs with cream of mushroom is a comforting and flavorful dish that’s easy to prepare. Here’s a description of what you can expect:

First, tender chicken legs are coated in a creamy and savory sauce made with cream of mushroom soup. The soup adds richness and depth of flavor, creating a luscious coating for the chicken as it bakes in the oven.

To prepare the dish, the chicken legs are arranged in a baking dish and seasoned with salt, pepper, and any additional herbs or spices of your choice.

As the chicken bakes in the oven, the creamy sauce thickens and caramelizes, forming a golden crust on the outside of the chicken legs. The aroma of savory mushrooms fills the kitchen as the dish cooks, tantalizing your senses and whetting your appetite.

Once the chicken is fully cooked and tender, it’s ready to be served. The creamy mushroom sauce adds moisture and flavor to the chicken, making each bite irresistibly delicious.

Place chicken legs back in the pan.
Bring the chicken stock to boil, cover, and reduce heat to simmer on low-medium.
Simmer chicken legs for 25-30 minutes, until the chicken is completely cooked through and the juices run clear when chicken is cut in the middle.
Remove the cooked chicken legs to a plate and keep warm.
Turn the heat under the skillet to medium-high, and simmer the mushroom sauce for about 4 minutes until it is reduced by about a third.
Stir in the 1/2 cup heavy cream into the mushroom sauce and simmer for another 2 minutes on low-medium heat, constantly stirring and scraping from the bottom of the skillet, until the sauce gets thicker.
