This was something out of a dream. No, I’m completely serious. I woke up at 3 in the morning breaking into a sweat dreaming about this chicken. 

As I mentioned above, there are a couple of options with this recipe.

First, you are going to make the most irresistible buttery garlic mushrooms. Once they get stuffed inside your chicken breasts, you are going to COOK them IN THE REMAINING GARLIC BUTTER that by this stage is filled with beautiful pan juices left over from the mushrooms. Also, I should note that by this stage, your butter begins to brown and turn into a mushroom browned butter. After this is when you can make a decision based on preference, diet, hunger, and whatever else you base your decisions on.

Creamy sauce? Or no creamy sauce? THAT is the question.

Decisions decisions. Because said sauce is NOT just any sauce. PARMESAN GARLIC CREAM SAUCE. Yeah. There’s that.

Personally, I can’t decide, and I can’t help you, because both ways were just as good as each other. I tried both with pasta and rice, pouring both butter AND cream sauce on the two different options to help me choose, and BOTH WON. HOW DOES THIS EVEN HAPPEN?

Then, if that’s not enough of a flavour bomb, the CHEESE oozing out of these Cheesy Garlic Butter Mushroom Stuffed Chicken breasts is.just.too.much!

Ingredients

Mushrooms:

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces (250 grams) brown mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Chicken:

  • 4 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
  • Salt and pepper, to season
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 8 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese

Garlic Parmesan Cream Sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 large cloves garlic minced or finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1-1/2 cups half and half or use reduced fat cream or evaporated milk*
  • 1/2 cup finely grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to your tastes
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch cornflour mixed with 2 teaspoons of water (OPTIONAL FOR A THICKER SAUCE)
  • 2 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley

Instructions

Chicken:

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C or 400°F.

  2. Melt butter in a large (over 12-inch or 30 cm) oven proof pan or skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant (about 1 minute). Add in mushrooms, salt and pepper (to your tastes), and parsley. Cook while stirring occasionally until soft. Set aside and allow to cool while preparing your chicken.

  3. Pat breasts dry with a paper towel. Season with salt, pepper, onion powder and dried parsley. Rub each piece to evenly coat in seasoning. 

  4. Horizontally slice a slit through the thickest part of each breast to form a pocket. Place 2 slices of mozzarella into each breast pocket. 

  5. Divide the mushroom mixture into four equal portions and fill each breast with the mushroom mixture (leave the juices in the pan for later). Top the mushroom mixture with 1 tablespoon of parmesan cheese per breast. Seal with two or three toothpicks near the opening to keep the mushrooms inside while cooking.

  6. Heat the same pan the mushrooms were in along with the pan juices (the garlic butter will start to brown and take on a ‘nutty’ flavour). Add the chicken and sear until golden. Flip and sear on the other side until golden. Cover pan and continue cooking in preheated oven for a further 20 minutes, or until completely cooked through the middle and no longer pink.

  7. Serve along wiht the pan juices with pasta, rice or steamed vegetables.

  8. (To make the optional cream sauce, transfer chicken to a warm plate, keeping all juices in the pan.)

Sauce:

  1. Fry the garlic in the leftover pan juices until fragrant (about 1 minute). Reduce heat to low heat, and add the mustard and half and half (or cream). 

  2. Bring the sauce to a gentle simmer and add in the parmesan cheese. Allow the sauce to simmer until the parmesan cheese has melted slightly. (If the sauce is too runny for your liking, add the cornstarch/water mixture into the centre of the pan and mix through fast to combine into the sauce. It will begin to thicken immediately).

  3. Season with a little salt and pepper to your taste. Add in the parsley and the chicken back into the pan to serve.
