Baked Chicken and Mushrooms

Posted by on Mar 5, 2013 in Chicken, Cooking, Dinner

This is a quick and simple dinner idea for those evenings you’re short on time and don’t know what to prepare.  You can make it with light or dark meat, just be sure to adjust cooking times if needed.   I served mine over mashed potatoes but it would be good with rice too.

Baked Chicken and Mushrooms

(about 4 servings)

4-6 chicken breast fillets

1 tablespoon of olive oil

1 tablespoon of butter

10 ounces of mushrooms, sliced

1 teaspoon of minced garlic (or 1 clove)

1/2 cup of chicken broth

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon parsley

2 tablespoons of flour

1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 9X13 baking dish with non stick cooking spray.  Lay chicken evenly in dish and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Meanwhile, heat oil and butter over medium heat in a large skillet.  Add mushrooms and garlic and cook until mushrooms are slightly translucent.  Add chicken broth and spices and heat.  Sprinkle flour over the top and stir until smooth.  Let mixture come to a low boil, then pour it evenly over the chicken.  Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until chicken is cooked.  Sprinkle cheese over the top and put back in the oven just until its melted.
