  • In a shallow bowl, beat the egg with salt, pepper and 1 teaspoon garlic powder. In a separate dish, mix bread crumbs with 1 teaspoon of garlic powder and Parmesan cheese. Set aside.

  • Mix together the melted butter and lemon juice. Pour about 2/3 of the butter mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Tilt pan to coat the bottom. Spread mushrooms in an even layer in the bottom of the dish. Dip each chicken breast into the egg mixture, then into the bread crumb mixture. Place on top of the mushrooms. Drizzle remaining butter over the chicken, and sprinkle with parsley.

  • Bake uncovered for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until chicken is golden brown and juices run clear.

This was just okay. I only had four breasts but used the original amounts for the breading as listed and just had enough. The chicken was very moist but almost too salty and the crust was mushy. I think next time I will brown the chicken a little first and not pour the butter/lemon juice over the top. Read More

This was really good and easy to make. I did take others suggestions and double the butter/lemon mixture and double the mushrooms. I will be adding this to my recipe book as a regular for meal time! Read More

This was a very good dish and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys chicken mushrooms and garlic. The only downfall is that it takes a bit of time preparing everything. Based upon previous reviews I made the following changes: used Italian herb bread crumbs instead of plain added 4 minced garlic cloves to the mushrooms served with fresh grated parmesan at time of serving. My friend and I both enjoyed the texture and overall taste of this dish. The calories aren't horrendous either (when served as a dinner meal). I recommend enjoying this dish with some steamed green beans. I plan on making this again. Read More

Really Liked the way this turned out. I did change a few things to suit our tastes. I added crushed garlic to the butter and lemon juice mixture on the bottom of the pan. I also baked as the recipe called for but added high moisture mozzarella cheese to top it for the last 5-7 minutes. It turned out wonderful. Can't wait to make this one again....thanks for the post.

My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe! I did make a few changes suggested by other users. I doubled the egg mixture bread crumb mixture and butter/lemon juice mixture and it worked out great. I also added shredded mozzarella during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Make sure you use a meat thermometer...the chicken was done in 35 minutes. I think 45 minutes would have made the chicken too dry. Read More

The chicken came out very moist and tender. I followed recipe exactly but think I will make a few changes for next time. I will double the butter sauce (not very healthy I know) becaue it seems to cook down to nothing. I will add some garlic to the bottom of the pan as another user suggested and add some sun-dried tomoatos. It was very delicious as is though. It goes VERY well with the spinach and orzo salad from this site. Read More

Since I made this the first time some months ago it has been our favorite chicken dish. I've served it to guests a number of times and cooked and served it in my motorhome. I wouldn't change a thing in the recipe but I do use boneless skinless thighs more than breasts (as they are a preference in our house). It is absolutely a delicious dish!! Read More

Hubs and I really really enjoyed this! I prepared this sticking reasonably close to the recipe except for using seasoned bread crumbs more butter and lemon and sprinkling the chicken with fresh dill along with the parsley. I also added some fresh garlic and shallots to the mushrooms. However I knew the cooking time would be too long. More and more I'm seeing that chicken breasts vary in size so the cooking time can only be a rough guide. Mine were done at about 25 minutes. The chicken is tender and moist with great flavor. Served with "Pasta with Swiss Chard " also from this site this dinner was a hit. Read More

The recipe was so easy to make and was totally delicious. I too doubled the egg mixture because 1 egg did not appear to be enough. My chicken was done in about 35 minutes and was perfect...45 minutes seems a little too long and may make the chicken dry. Read More
