Chicken and mushrooms served on a bed of pasta

Creamy, Cheesy Chicken + Mushrooms

This hearty, savory dish is filled with earthy flavors and topped with a creamy sauce and tangy cheese. It is a symphony in your mouth. It is reminiscent of a mushroom stroganoff, but involved crispy chicken and swiss cheese. Yum.

This plate-full tastes delish on a bed of pasta, but is quite homey on a pile of mashed potatoes. Talk about comfort food at it’s finest! 

While it is a little more involved, the homemade mushroom cream sauce really elevates the dish. It is still simple to put together, and comes to the table in under an hour even with bake time. 

Sautéing mushrooms in a skillet

Sauté + Bake

PREP. Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.

SAUTE. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and garlic to the skillet, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms are soft.

COOK. Add the mushroom soup and chicken broth to the skillet, and cook until well combined and heated through.

FILLET. To prepare the chicken, cut the chicken breasts in half horizontally to form thin fillets.

WHISK. In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs and milk. In another shallow dish, whisk together the bread crumbs, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

DIP. Dip the chicken pieces in the egg mixture, then coat with the bread crumbs on both sides.

FRY. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the breaded chicken to the skillet and cook 3-4 minutes per side, until golden brown on both sides.

LAYER. Pour half of the mushroom sauce into the prepared baking dish, then layer the chicken pieces on top. Pour the remaining mushroom sauce over the top of the chicken, and cover with the slices of Swiss cheese.

BAKE & SERVE. Bake 35-40 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Serve hot with noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes.

Additional Recipe Tips

How to keep the chicken moist? You can keep the chicken moist if you avoid overbaking it! Make sure to use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the chicken and take it out when it reaches 165 degrees.

Kid friendly: Some kids don’t like mushrooms, just leave the mushrooms out and just serve the chicken with a creamy sauce.

Panko crumbs: If you prefer the taste of panko to traditional breadcrumbs, you can use panko.

Tips for dredging chicken:

  • Pour the eggs into a pie dish for easy dredging
  • Shake off any excess flour so you get a crisp cook. If your coating is too thick you risk a soggy coating and possibly under-baked chicken.
