Tonight’s guest recipe comes from Susie at Susie’s Homemade [3].  She is a thriving stay-at-home mom of two wonderful girls (5 and 19) and a caretaker of my 67 year old live-in mother. On her blog, Susie’s Homemade [3], she shares her adventures in baking, cooking, gardening, homemaking and entertaining.

1 lbs Chicken Breast
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 Tbsp Olive Oil

2 cups of Water
1 Can (10 3/4 oz.) Cream of Chicken Soup

1. Pound chicken flat and season both sides with salt and pepper.
