Instructions Checklist

    Advertisement
  • Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook chicken in the melted butter until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove chicken from skillet.

  • Cook and stir onion and mushrooms in the same skillet; add olive oil. Cook until onion and mushrooms are slightly tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Pour sherry and chicken broth into the skillet, and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon, about 2 minutes.

  • Return chicken to the skillet, cover, and simmer chicken and onion mixture until liquid is slightly reduced, about 15 minutes. Spoon onion and mushrooms atop each chicken breast and top each with a slice of provolone cheese. Remove skillet from heat; cover skillet until cheese melts, about 5 minutes.

We loved this chicken! I halved it (just two of us), and I used sherry rather than cream sherry---otherwise all the same. This is easy, delicious, and definitely a repeater! Thanks for this recipe! Read More

We thought this was just ok. Hubs made tonight & the only thing we did different was use regular sherry cause we didn't have cream sherry. Thought it needed "something" for a spice or herb but couldn't put a finger on it. He said it was easy to make & I did like the sauce. Read More

My family loves this dish. I use a cup of the sherry rather than open a can of broth for a half cup. Always have to make an extra pan of the onions and mushrooms so there's enough to go around. My daughter likes it over jasmine rice but I like it just on the plate with the sauce like a gravy over mashed potatoes. Read More

To those of you who aren't sure what cream sherry is it's a heavier sweetened version of regular sherry. Very good. Read More

We had this tasty recipe for lunch today because I had everything except the cheese. This was a delicious combination of flavors and fairly easy to prepare. I made only two very slight changes: I used a clove of fresh minced garlic added with the liquid and I sliced the onion vertically instead of chopping it. I picked up a nice provolone and it really sent the dish over the top. Thanks for the recipe Alisa! Read More

This was a huge hit at my house. I did make two small changes: I used garlic instead of garlic salt and a dry white instead of sherry because that's what was handy. Read More

We really liked this chicken. I cubed the breasts to serve it to the kids and stretch the meat. They were all starving so in my hurry to serve I forgot the cheese. It was sooo good I can only imagine how much better with the cheese on it. Definitely making this again. Read More

Delicious! I made the recipe as I had most of the ingredients and husband & I both loved it. I did add extra chicken broth but then had to thicken the sauce with cornstarch I don't recommend as it gets too thick very quickly. I did not have sherry so I subbed cooking sherry and it was good but probably would have been even better with sherry. This chicken & mushroom recipe is a keeper plus you feel like a great cook when it turns out perfect. Read More
