Baked Mushroom Chicken Recipe

Here's a way to dress up chicken breasts for a family dinner or party, using fresh mushrooms, green onions and two kinds of cheese. It's a recipe I can count on to yield tender and flavorful chicken every time. —Barbara McCalley, Allison Park, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 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


  • 1. Flatten each chicken breast half to 1/4-in. thickness. Place flour in a resealable plastic bag; add chicken, a few pieces at a time. Seal and shake to coat.
  • 2. 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 for 5 minutes or until liquid is reduced to 1/2 cup. Spoon over chicken.
  • 3. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Sprinkle with cheeses and green onions. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 4 servings.

"This was super easy and really delicious. I didn't have fresh mushrooms so I used two small cans. I wasn't sure about that because we love fresh mushrooms, but when they were sauteed in butter and added to the recipe, they were great. My husband asked me to add more cheese and more green onion the next time. When we heated it for leftovers I would add a handful of shredded cheese on the chicken. I'll also try chicken tenderloins, as I almost always have them on hand. Just have to watch the cooking time. Fabulous! Good enough for a company dinner."
