Mama Silva's Mesquite Chicken
I hope you enjoy this little recipe. Looking for something different to make, I happened to throw this together on a whim and it turned out to be a big hit!
- butter flavored cooking spray
- 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
- 1 (10 ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms
- 2 tablespoons dry mesquite flavored seasoning mix
- 4 slices mozzarella cheese
- 1 cup ready to serve soup with baked potato, bacon and chives
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1. Set a skillet over medium-high heat, and coat with cooking spray. Add the mushrooms, and 1 tablespoon of mesquite seasoning; cook and stir until almost done. Remove the mushrooms the pan using a slotted spoon, and coat with more cooking spray. Add chicken and brown on both sides. Return the mushrooms to the pan, and season with another tablespoon of mesquite seasoning. Cook, turning as needed, until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes.
- 2. Once the chicken is done, remove it from the pan, leaving the juices and mushrooms in the pan. Place slices of mozzarella cheese on top of the chicken. Stir the soup into the mushrooms, and bring to a simmer. Season with oregano and salt. Pour over the chicken, and serve.
