The bottom line
Cooking chicken breast recipes with mushroom soup helps you in more ways than one.
Not only do you get to cook faster, but you also add loads of flavor to your chicken breast, not to mention help keep it from drying out quickly.
However, this doesn’t mean you can let it cook for extended periods (except when you use a slow cooker).
You still need to be conscious of how long your chicken breast cooks, even if it’s submerged in broth or mushroom soup.
It still tends to dry on the inside if overcooked, so some care still needs to be exercised when using this cooking method.
