  • ·
    4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • ·
    1 egg
  • ·
    1 cup butter flavored cracker, crushed (about 25 crackers)
  • ·
    3⁄4 teaspoon salt (or use seasoned salt for extra flavor)
  • ·
    1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
  • ·
    1⁄2 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • ·
    1⁄2 lb fresh mushrooms, sliced

How to Make Swiss Mushroom Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. In a shallow bowl, lightly beat the egg. Combine cracker crumbs and salt and pepper in another shallow bowl. Dip chicken in egg, then roll in crumbs; set aside.
  2. In a large ovenproof skillet, saute onions and mushrooms in 1 tablespoon butter until tender; remove and set aside. In the same skillet, cook chicken over medium heat in remaining butter for 3-4 minutes on each side or until no longer pink.
  3. Top each chicken breast half with a ham slice, onions, mushrooms and a cheese slice. Broil 4-6 inches from the heat for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
