Chicken Mozzarella

Recipe by highcotton
READY IN: 25mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • Melt 4 tablespoons butter or margarine in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Rinse chicken pieces with cold water and pat dry.
  • When butter has melted and begun to sizzle slightly, add chicken to skillet.
  • Cook chicken approximately 10 minutes, until nicely-browned.
  • Meanwhile, rinse and trim onions; slice thinly, including some green "tops".
  • Clean mushrooms and remove stems; slice caps.
  • 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.
  • Add mushrooms and onions to skillet, along with additional butter if necessary.
  • (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.
  • Place a slice of cheese on each piece of chicken.
  • Remove to a platter and cover with foil.
  • Allow chicken to sit about 5 minutes until cheese melts.
  • Spoon mushroom mixture over chicken before serving.
