Baked chicken legs with cream of mushroom sauce is a comforting and flavorful dish that is easy to prepare. Here’s a simple recipe to make this delicious meal:


  • 6 chicken legs (drumsticks and thighs)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth or water
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme (or use fresh thyme if available)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish, optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Season the chicken legs with salt and pepper according to your taste.
  3. In a large oven-safe skillet or baking dish, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken legs and brown them on all sides until golden, about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken legs from the skillet and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add chopped onions and minced garlic. Sauté until the onions are translucent and fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add the cream of mushroom soup, chicken broth or water, dried thyme, and paprika to the skillet. Stir well to combine and bring the mixture to a simmer.
  6. Return the chicken legs to the skillet, nestling them into the mushroom sauce.
  7. Cover the skillet with a lid or aluminum foil and transfer it to the preheated oven.
  8. Bake the chicken legs for about 30-35 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through (internal temperature reaches 165°F or 75°C) and the sauce is bubbly and slightly thickened.
  9. If desired, broil the chicken legs for an additional 2-3 minutes after baking to brown the tops slightly.
  10. Remove the skillet from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes.
  11. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving, if using.
  12. Serve the baked chicken legs with cream of mushroom sauce hot, accompanied by your favorite side dishes such as rice, mashed potatoes, or steamed vegetables.
