In this quick and delicious weeknight dinner recipe, chicken breasts are lightly browned and then baked with mushrooms, sliced tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese.​ Wine adds extra flavor, but chicken broth will work as well.

What You'll Need

  • 4 to 6 chicken breast halves
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • garlic powder to taste
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter (divided)
  • 8 ounces mushrooms (sliced)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons Marsala wine (or white wine or use chicken broth)
  • 1 tomato (medium or large, sliced)
