How To Make chicken in a creamy mushroom-havarti sauce

  • 1
    Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces, and cook in the hot butter, turning occasionally, for about 7 minutes or until chicken is browned on all sides. Season with dill weed, salt and pepper.
  • 2
    Add onion to skillet, and continue cooking and stirring until onion is clear, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, and cook another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 3
    Reduce heat to low, stir in sour cream and cheese, and cook about 2 minutes more or just until cheese melts.
  • 4
    Sprinkle the breadcrumbs and parsley on top, and stir just enough to incorporate the breadcrumbs into the cheesy mixture. Serve immediately.
