Awesome Smothered Chicken

I went out to a local restaurant one day and ordered this, and it left me wanting more! I came home and about a week later, I decided to perfect it and it really came out just as good or better than the restaurant chef's recipe! (Well, that's my humble opinion!)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Robyn was accurate in naming this chicken recipe - it really is awesome! The flavor of all the fresh veggies cooked down with the chicken is fantastic. Melting your favorite cheese just brings this to a whole new level. We used pepper jack and loved the spice. But use your favorite. A great low carb way to prepare a plain chicken breast. An easy make-ahead meal.

Note: We opted to saute the veggies, remove them from the pan, cook the chicken and then put the veggies back into the pan to ensure the chicken was cooked through. The Test Kitchen

6
boneless chicken breasts
salt, pepper and desired seasonings to taste
cooking oil and a little butter
8 oz
fresh sliced mushrooms
1
green pepper, choped
1/2 c

a little minced garlic or garlic powder to taste

How to Make Awesome Smothered Chicken

Step-by-Step

  • 1Put a few tablespoons cooking oil (I use canola) and a couple of tablespoons butter into a skillet. Sauté the mushrooms, green pepper, onion, and garlic in butter/oil mixture until tender.
  • 2Flatten the chicken, if desired; sprinkle with desired seasonings.
  • 3Place the chicken into the pan.
  • 4Cover with the vegetables and let simmer until chicken is cooked through.
  • 5Note: You can also remove the vegetables while you're cooking the chicken and then when chicken is done, simply throw everything back onto the tops of chicken breasts. The choice is yours.
  • 6Add shredded cheese or large slices of cheese.
  • 7Cover with lid just long enough to melt cheese down through the vegetables and onto the chicken. (My favorite cheese to use is the pepper jack... mmm!)
  • 8Makes 6 servings. Do not freeze.
  • 9Serve with your favorite sides.

    Hint: To make this a little less fattening, try grilling your chicken on the outdoor grill and saute your vegetables in fry pan on top of stove as in recipe. Then continue with rest of recipe.
