Roasted Chicken Stuffed with Cream of Mushroom

Here’s a very easy recipe for roasted chicken that you can try for your Media Noche tomorrow.  It is adopted from the recipe of the same title that I found while browsing through the Assumption Cookbook (Pearl Edition), prepared by the High School Class of ’79.

Two (2) things love about this roasted chicken recipe:  (1) you need only 4 ingredients to prepare it, and (2) no overnight marinating!

We used Bounty Fresh young chicken for this, and to prepare it for roasting, we seasoned it with:

  • 2 teaspoons rock salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • Olive oil mixed with McCormick dried rosemary leaves and dried thyme leaves  (prepare just enough to cover the whole chicken) – this is our own addition; the recipe called for only salt and pepper

Place chicken in a baking dish and tie the legs together.  Stuff the cream of mushroom (we used the Campbell brand) inside the chicken cavity.  Bake in preheated oven at 350-degrees Fahrenheit for about an 45 minutes or until chicken tender and brown.   If you are using a convection oven (like us), baking time will stretch to another 30 minutes, making it a total of 1 hour and 15 minutes.

One modification we made in this recipe is the use of Campbell Cream of Mushroom, instead of the Cream of Mushroom Soup.  Because it’s cream-based, we found it easier to stuff inside the chicken.  Make sure to leave some of this for the gravy that you will make later.

Here’s our chicken after 45 minutes of baking.  It smelled really great because of the rosemary and thyme.


Make sure to turn the chicken once in a while for all sides to roast evenly.

Grabe, sulit na sulit talaga itong Asahi convection oven namin!  We have already baked cookies, cakes, brownies, fish and chicken here.


The finished product:


If you want more creamy mushroom flavor for your chicken meat, you can try this trick that we did: open-cut the cooked chicken (breast portion) and pour some of the sauce inside.  Bring it back to the oven and roast for another 5 minutes.

Serve immediately!  After all, nakakatakam talaga sya hehe!


For an instant gravy sauce, whisk together the drippings of the roasted chicken (minus the oil)  and the remaining cream of mushroom.

You can pour the sauce over the chicken pieces or serve it on the side.


I guarantee you, this chicken recipe is for keeps!

    hi there! would love to try this over the weekend 🙂 by the way, I was really inspired with your blog so I decided to buy the same oven. I’ve tried broiling chicken yesterday and the result is great! my family loves it so much. The thing is, I want to ask if you followed the instruction in the manual? did u left the oven door partly opened? do I really have to do that? kasi my husband says parang ang malakas daw sa kuryente. Just want to know if it’s ok to broil or roast it even if the oven door is closed..just a thought..para tipid din next time I cook your chicken recipe. Thanks in advance!

    Hi, we had the same brand of Asahi marami na rin ako nabake pero palaging may konting sunog? Di ko lam use nung selector after the thermostat? Ung parang may fan? Need ba un adjust kapag may bake ka? Also with this chicken recipe that you posted since convection oven ilan degree sa Celcius?

    I would really appreciate your help.

      Hi Salve, you should use the bottom selector for baking – the one with the fan. When tryi this recipe, turn your temperature to around 180 celsius

    Hi Ms Leah,

    Yung upper dial po ng Asahi oven, for temperature. Tapos yung sa middle, kung pipili ka kung upper part lang ng ilaw yung gagana or yung lower na light bulbs or both po, tama ba? Tapos sa pinaka ilalim yung timer? Please let me know po, never pa po kasi ako nakagamit ng oven na convection cooker. Thanks a lot.

  7. Patricia says


    I was inspired to how your Asahi can bake and cook so many food, but upon checking po, the oven’s highest temp is only 250C, and some of your recipe po is at 350.

    Note that I haven’t tried baking pa po, please enlighten me.

    Thank u.
