Baked Mushroom Chicken
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min.
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 pound)
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons butter, divided
- 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/3 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
- 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup sliced green onions
- Flatten each chicken breast half to 1/4-in. thickness. Place flour in a shallow bowl. Dip chicken in flour to coat both sides; shake off excess.
- In a large skillet, brown chicken in 2 tablespoons butter on both sides. Transfer to a greased 11x7-in. baking dish. In the same skillet, saute mushrooms in the remaining butter until tender. Add the broth, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced to 1/2 cup, about 5 minutes. Spoon over chicken.
- Bake, uncovered, at 375° until chicken is no longer pink, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with cheeses and green onions. Bake until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes longer.

Made this the other night and it was delicious! I had a bit of Chardonnay that I added in. My husband liked it and the chicken was very moist. You really don’t need any added salt because of the cheeses. Great recipe!

This chicken is a hit with my family and for anyone I prepare it for. It is so very good.

*I made this last night for our girls' game night dinner and everyone loved it! Doubled the mushrooms and butter they were sauted in and used 1/2 cup chicken broth and 1/2 cup sherry for more sauce on the chicken. Served it with steamed broccoli and rice. Excellent! I will definitely make this again!

I added a small halved and sliced Vidalia onion to the mushroom saute. I used the entire container of sliced Baby Bella mushrooms, maybe 2 cups. Rather than dirty an 11 x 17 pan I added the chicken breast back to my heavy saute pan, spooned the lovely mushroom and onion sauce over and baked. Moist and perfectly done at 15 minutes. Oops, I forgot to add the grated cheese but didnt miss it..

Excellent, fast and easy! Used extra mushrooms and instead of pounding chicken, just sliced into two thin breasts. Very flavorful and moist. Keeper!

I've made this several times. Delicious and like the idea of dry sherry instead of broth...will definitely try that next time.

Omit the salt and use low or no sodium broth. Plenty of salt in the cheese. Your ankles will thank you.

Last night was the first time making this dinner' It was fast due to the light browning on both sides of the chicken which comes out juicy after it's baked. It's easy since I prepared this before hand letting it sit in the broth until my family all arrived. Then 20 mins later at 350 degrees I removed it to add the 2 toppings along with spinach for iron then cooked it 5 more minutes and it was absolutely delicious! Even the kids loved this!Thank you Barbara for sharing ur great tasting recipe!
