A very comforting recipe. I don't remember where it came from but I have been making it for several years.

Oh my gosh! So delicious. I will serve this to company proudly. I substituted olive oil for butter -- a little healthier and still just delicious. This is, indeed, comfort food, but it's comfort food with class. Thanks a million.

  1. Cut each breast half into 2 cutlets. Pound each to 1/8 inch thick.
  2. Mix salt with 3 tbsp flour and coat chicken with this mixture.
  3. In skillet, melt 3 tbsp butter, add cutlets a few at a time and saute until lightly browned on both sides, adding more butter if necessary.
  4. Remove cutlets from the skillet.
  5. Arrange cheese slices on 6 cutlets; top with remaining cutlets and skewer layers together with toothpicks. Set aside.
  6. In the drippings, melt 2 tbsp more butter. Add mushrooms and cook until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in pepper and 1 tbsp flour; blend well. Gradually stir in water, milk, wine, and bouillon. Heat to boiling, stirring to loosen brown bits from bottom of skillet.
