  1. Preheat oven broiler to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a broiler pan with aluminum foil. Place chicken on the broiling pan.
  2. Broil chicken breasts in preheated oven for 25 to 35 minutes or until they are cooked through and the juices run clear.
  3. Meanwhile, place mushrooms in a medium skillet, season with salt and pepper to taste, cover skillet and cook over high heat until the juices run. Once that happens, lower heat, remove cover and carry on cooking until liquid has evaporated. Add mushrooms to chicken and sprinkle shredded cheese on top.

I knew before I started this recipe, that I was going to have to jazz it up a bit, for our tastes anyway. I knew it would need more seasoning, so I made Traci’s Adobo Seasoning, also from this site, and seasoned the chicken with that – no additional salt and pepper. I also changed the cooking process quite a bit, which I believe simplified everything. First I sautéed my seasoned chicken in a little EVOO on the stove top until completely cooked through, but still moist (25-35 min. as indicated in the recipe, under my broiler, would have produced burnt shoe leather). I transferred the chicken to a baking sheet lined with foil sprayed lightly with non-stick cooking spray, topped with the cheese and popped under the broiler for just about 30-40 seconds – not too long or most of the cheese will melt off onto the foil. I kept the chicken warm while I sautéed the mushrooms in the same skillet I had used for the chicken, until nicely browned. Then I couldn’t help but add a splash of white wine to the mushrooms and let it cook off almost completely. When plating I topped the chicken with the mushrooms and served. I might also add that I never sauté mushrooms, or anything for that matter, covered – sort or defeats the purpose by creating condensation that will hinder the browning. A decent recipe, but nothing noteworthy. I do think the Traci’s Adobo Seasoning and my addition of white wine improved this greatly from the original recipe.

Really think you need to add butter and/or olive oil to the mushrooms to add some more flavor. This was good but just basic.

Wonderful Taste! Thank you for this easy and great way to have chicken cutlets from the BBQ!

This recipe includes 3 of my favorite ingredients: chicken, cheese and mushrooms. How can you go wrong. Simple yet wonderful. Thanks to you Lyn.

Tasty and easy to prepare. The cooking times are definitely too long though. Keep an eye on your chicken and don't cook as long as suggested. Otherwise, a great recipe.

We really enjoyed this recipe. I loved how easy & quick it is to throw together. I used chicken breast tenders, sprinkled with a little garlic salt. The mushrooms I cooked with a tablespoon of butter, then added a clove of minced garlic. When they were tender, I added parmesan cheese. Then once I added the mushrooms to the chicken, I used colby jack cheese. Great taste for so few ingredients! I will be making this on my late work nights!
