Muenster Mushroom Chicken

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

    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 4 teaspoons butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup Marsala wine or 1/4 cup white grape juice plus 1/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

    My breading didn't stick to the chicken very well - maybe b/c I used egg substitute? But otherwise, very good!

    I baked the chicken at 375 for 30 mintes and put the cheese on and baked it until the cheese melted.

    This recipe is awesome. The chicken was so juicy. My husband hates chicken breasts. He says it's to dry, but he wants me to make this again. Just delicious. Thanks for the recipe.butterfly pie

    Try with SWISS CHEESE - should be tasty - also - use some of the melting kinds of italian cheeses - like PROVOLONE or ASSIAGIO or MOZZARELLA !!

    Thanks for this recipe.  I'm going to have to try it.  I have the meunster cheese, I have the mushrooms ~ in fact I have everything but the chicken!  But that is easily remedied.  Looking forward to this one.Lorraine
