2-Step Cream of Mushroom Chicken

So growing up, one of my mom's staple recipes, as well as one of our family's favorites, was her "Chicken and Rice" dinner.  I can remember the warm smell of the chicken broth simmering in the crock pot all day.... oh the good 'ole days! 

Well to put it simply, "chicken and rice" is a simple dish.  As I'm told by the chef herself, chicken breasts are put in a crock pot, along with canned cream of chicken soup, then served with white rice and the chicken "gravy" that simmers along with the chicken all day.

Anyway, the other day I re-vamped Mom's traditional chicken and rice recipe by making it in a skillet!  and I used cream of mushroom soup instead of chicken.  It was so easy and so yummy and tasted just like my mom's home cooking- right in my little apartment in Provo. :)  (Not to mention this it is a healthy, low-fat meal full of protein!)
