This is an easy mozzarella chicken recipe. Chicken breast halves are cooked in butter then broiled with a topping of mushrooms and cheese.
It's a fabulous entree to make for a special dinner, but it's easy enough for an everyday family meal.
4 breast boneless chicken breast
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste
4 ounces sliced mushrooms
4 slices mozzarella cheese
1 cup rice, optional for serving
8 ounces cooked pasta, optional for serving
Pound chicken breast halves until evenly thin. Dredge chicken with flour.
In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Cook chicken in butter for about 4 to 6 minutes on each side, until tender and cooked through.
Remove chicken to a shallow baking dish; sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
Add 1 tablespoon butter to the skillet and sauté mushrooms until tender.
Arrange mushroom slices on top of each piece of chicken; cover with a slice of cheese. Place the remaining mushrooms around the chicken.
Place chicken breasts under a hot broiler until cheese is melted.
Serve immediately with hot buttered pasta or rice.
Glass Bakeware Warning
Do not use glass bakeware when broiling or when a recipe calls to add liquid to a hot pan, as glass may explode. Even if it states oven-safe or heat resistant, tempered glass products can, and do, break occasionally.
