Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms with Ground Chicken and Cheese

A perfect meal in itself along with a green salad. These can also be made if you're on a keto diet.

  • cooking spray

  • 4 large portobello mushrooms

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 small yellow onion, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced, or more to taste

  • 1 pound ground chicken

  • 1 ½ cups shredded Gouda cheese, divided

  • 1 small tomato, seeded and chopped

  • 4 ounces spreadable goat cheese

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • ½ teaspoon minced fresh rosemary

  • ½ teaspoon minced fresh basil


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Spray a casserole dish large enough to hold the mushrooms with cooking spray.

  2. Remove mushroom stems; chop and set aside in a medium bowl. Use a spoon to carefully remove gills, making sure you don't tear the mushroom caps; discard gills. Invert the mushroom caps and place in the prepared dish.

  3. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; saute for 5 minutes. Add ground chicken and cook, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon, until crumbly and no longer pink, about 10 minutes.

  4. Add chicken mixture to the chopped mushroom stems. Stir in 1 cup Gouda cheese, tomato, goat cheese, parsley, rosemary, and basil. Fill the cavity of each mushroom with the mixture, mounding it slightly.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup Gouda over the mushrooms and bake until cheese melts, about 5 more minutes. Serve hot.

Cook's Notes:

You can use ground pork for ground chicken, and lactose-free Gouda for regular.

I use goat cheese made from goat's milk, not regular milk.
