These tasty baked chicken breasts are stuffed with a mixture of mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, and other vegetables. The sauce calls for tomato soup but cream of mushroom soup or a seasoned bechamel sauce may be used as well. Or use a jar of prepared chicken gravy and omit the water.

Ingredients

  • 6 boneless chicken breasts

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 1 medium onion, sliced

  • 4 ounces sliced mushrooms

  • 1 stalk celery, thinly sliced

  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

  • 2 tablespoons fine dry breadcrumbs

  • 2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • Salt, to taste

  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 1 (10.5-ounces) can condensed tomato soup

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/2 teaspoon crumbled basil leaves

Steps to Make It

  1. Place chicken pieces between sheets of plastic or waxed paper and gently pound with a meat mallet to flatten evenly. Be careful not to tear or break through.

  2. In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil and butter; sauté onion slices, mushrooms, and celery until tender. Add egg, parsley, breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Stir to blend well.

  3. Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper; fill with even portions of the filling mixture. Roll up and secure with toothpicks.

  4. Arrange chicken breasts in a shallow 3-quart baking dish, spooning any extra filling around the chicken rolls.

  5. Mix soup with 1/2 cup water and the basil; pour over chicken. 

  6. Bake at 350 F, basting occasionally with sauce in the baking dish, for 55 minutes to 1 hour.

  7. Remove toothpicks and serve with hot cooked rice or potatoes.

Recipe Variations

  • Substitute the condensed tomato soup with cream of mushroom soup.
  • Omit the soup and 1/2 cup of water and make about 2 cups of seasoned white sauce or easy gravy.
