    highcotton's Note:

    Back in the day, when life revolved around the kids' practices and games and other after-school activities, dinner usually had to be on the table in 30 minutes max. This recipe from Southern Living was one of our 'quick-and-easy' favorites. Prepare a package of long-grain and wild rice, throw some green beans in a saucepan to heat, chop up a few pieces of fruit (or open a can), and you'll have a very acceptable dinner in spite of your crazy schedule! :) Also, whether you're cooking for 1 or 4 or 10, this one is easily adaptable.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Melt 4 tablespoons butter or margarine in a large skillet over medium heat.
    2. 2
      Rinse chicken pieces with cold water and pat dry.
    3. 3
      When butter has melted and begun to sizzle slightly, add chicken to skillet.
    4. 4
      Cook chicken approximately 10 minutes, until nicely-browned.
    5. 5
      Meanwhile, rinse and trim onions; slice thinly, including some green "tops".
    6. 6
      Clean mushrooms and remove stems; slice caps.
    7. 7
      When chicken is browned on the outside and appears to be cooked approximately halfway through, turn the pieces over and sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper.
    8. 8
      Add mushrooms and onions to skillet, along with additional butter if necessary.
    9. 9
      (Note: The original recipe did not call for extra, but I sometimes have to add a tablespoon or two so that the veggies will sauté properly instead of sticking). Cook approximately 10 additional minutes, until chicken is thoroughly done.
    10. 10
      Place a slice of cheese on each piece of chicken.
    11. 11
      Remove to a platter and cover with foil.
    12. 12
      Allow chicken to sit about 5 minutes until cheese melts.
    13. 13
      Spoon mushroom mixture over chicken before serving.

      I agree that the flavor was a bit plain and should have added garlic. I added hot cherry peppers, but I think garlic would have been better. This was a very quick and easy meal.

      We really enjoyed this meal and DH rated it 5 stars. I did make a few changes/ additions. I butterflied 2 large chicken breasts, but left the rest of the proportions the same. (One can't have too many mushrooms!) I prepared this in an electric skillet and when I turned the chicken I added a sliced onion as I was short on green onions. I used Mrs. Dash instead of salt and sprinkled both sides. I also added 2 cloves of garlic when I added the mushrooms. The chicken turned out very flavorful, nothing plain here. I loved that it was quick & easy. We will definitely have this again. Thanks highcotton for another enjoyable meal!

      This was easy and turned out well. No muss or fuss, but the flavor is a bit plain.
