8 oz
fresh sliced mushrooms
1/3 c
plain flour
1/3 c
1 c
marsala wine
1/4 tsp
1/8 tsp
boneless skinless chicken breast
1/2 c
shredded fontina or mozzarella cheese
1/2 c
grated parmesan cheese
1/4 c
chopped green onions
1/2 c
chicken broth


1Saute the mushrooms in 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet until tender and set aside.
2Cut each chicken breast in half lengthwise. Pound until 1/8 inch thick between saran wrap or wax paper.

Remove each batch and place the chicken in a 9x13 baking dish, over lapping if necessary. Sprinkle the mushrooms over the chicken.

Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to simmer for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. If you need to thicken add a tablespoon of cornstarch and a little chicken broth that is blended before you put it in the sauce. Stir in the salt and pepper, then pour over the chicken.
5Combine the fontina, parmesan cheese and green onions in a bowl. Sprinkle over the chicken and bake 20 mins at 375 degrees. Broil for 2 mins 6 inches from the heat source. . Leave the oven door open a bit
