Diane's Chicken Dish

Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars

"This has been a family favorite of ours for many years and is a sure way to make sure my teenage girls make it to the dinner table. Worth any prep time! Serve over rice. If your family are hearty eaters like mine, this will only serve 4."

  1. Whisk together the vinegar, olive oil, water, and Italian dressing mix in a bowl. Stir in the chicken; allow chicken to marinate while preparing the remaining ingredients.
  2. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion and bell pepper; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove the the chicken from the marinade using a slotted spoon, and transfer to the skillet; reserve the remaining marinade. Cook and stir the chicken until no longer pink in the center, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the mushrooms; cook and stir until they begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Add tomato and reserved marinade, then sprinkle cheese on top. Do not stir. Cover and simmer on low heat until cheese is melted and chicken is tender, about 20 minutes. Allow the dish to rest for a few minutes before serving.

Diane your chicken dish recipe is delicious. My family loved it, even my 15 yr old daughter who is a very finicky eater love this dish. I served it over angel spaghetti noodles. Thank you.

I was looking for a healthier version of "italian dressing packet + cream cheese", which I love. This is simple, healthy and yummy! I used drained, canned diced tomatoes.
