This mushroom chicken recipe is the perfect way to dress up a standard weeknight dinner. It's a recipe I can count on to yield tender and flavorful mushroom chicken every time. —Barbara McCalley, Allison Park, Pennsylvania
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min.
  • Makes
    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


  • 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.

    We love this recipe! I will put it in my meal rotation. I loved the fact that I could clean up each step while the next step was cooking as well as preparing a tossed salad. I had a clean kitchen when it came out of the oven. I served it with the salad and roasted Yukon gold potatoes. Delicious!

    My husband took one bite and said "this is good!". He expected the typical dry chicken breast. it is so moist and tasty, We loved it. Yes, we added about 3 times more mushrooms and some more green onions, want to try next time with spinach.

    Family loved it. I am diabetic so I altered the recipe by using almond flour instead of regular flour. Deglazed the pan with white wine then sautéed shallots, garlic and fresh spinach along with the mushrooms. Calculated one serving @ 196 calories. 8 carbs is respectable without the math.

    This is a fan favorite in our house. My kids ask for it all the time. It's a very simple recipe with a lot of flavor. The only things I do different is use a lot more mushrooms and a little bit more of the mozzarella cheese because my family loves both. I love to serve this alongside some fresh steamed or roasted asparagus and smashed redskin potatoes.
