This recipe is a great one to entertain with.  It looks hard to prepare, but it isn’t and it tastes great!


$3.37 – 4 chicken breasts
$0.49 – 4 oz. can of sliced mushrooms
$0.33 – Half of a medium sized onion sliced thinly
$1.75 – 1 cup of mozzarella cheese

TOTAL: $5.94

You will also need salt, pepper, garlic powder, butter, and olive oil

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

In a small skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Add onions and gently sautee for about 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms to the skillet and continue to cook for another 2 minutes.

Prepare a second larger skillet for the chicken. Warm to medium high heat. Clean chicken and pat dry. Sprinkle both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan right before you add chicken. Cook the chicken for 4 minutes per side or until lightly golden brown.
Once the chicken, mushrooms, and onions have cooked, it is time to start smothering! Place your chicken in a 9×13 glass pan that has been sprayed with some non-stick spray. Cover each chicken breast with the onion and mushroom mix. Top with the mozzarellla cheese. Bake in your oven for about 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Serve with a side of noodles, a salad, or some fresh steamed vegetables.
