Muenster Mushroom Chicken Recipe

Muenster Mushroom Chicken Recipe

This savory entree has been a longtime favorite with my family. Topped with cheese and Marsala-seasoned mushrooms, the breaded chicken breasts seem anything but light. I often bake them in the oven, but the stovetop make them fast. —Elaine Anderson of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania
