Chicken Breast With Portabella Mushrooms

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Shannon Fernekes

I got tired of the typical chicken dinners, so I found this in an "All Chicken" cookbook. Although, I did make a few minor changes. If you like mushrooms, this is a great recipe for you. Pasta works as a great side dish.

This is a great recipe, it just isn't for me. I should have omitted the parmesan cheese. I did use onions instead of shallots. My servings were half of a breast, so this would serve eight people. I also added garlic to the onions and mushrooms. I used 1/4 slice of provolone cheese on each serving and a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese.
