It’s also low in carbs, Keto-friendly, with enough protein to keep you going and going.

Mushrooms and Onions in a Skillet


  • We start with cooking onions and mushrooms in a skillet for 5 minutes. 
  • In the meantime, grab a meat mallet and pound the chicken down to about 1/4-inch thickness. 
  • Transfer half of the cooked mushrooms mixture to a baking dish; set aside the rest because we will use those to top the chicken.
  • Season chicken breasts and add to the skillet where you cooked the mushrooms; cook each chicken breast for 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
  • Remove chicken breasts from skillet and arrange over mushrooms in the baking dish.
  • Return skillet to the stove; add chicken broth and scrape up the browned bits. Bring mixture to a boil and cook for 5 minutes, until liquid is reduced.
  • Top chicken breasts with the rest of the mushrooms mixture, add cheese, and pour in the prepared liquid.
  • Pop in a 375F preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and cheese is melted.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley and serve. 

Mushrooms and onions overs chicken breasts.

Serve this Mushroom Baked Chicken with a big green salad, or over a bed of rice, pasta, or Zucchini Noodles. It is a total crowd pleaser, and a great choice for a satisfying meal.


  • Chicken breasts need 20 to 22 minutes of bake time in a 375F degree oven. However, cooking time also depends on the thickness of the chicken breasts – thicker breasts will need more time to cook. Use a meat thermometer to check that the internal temperature of the cooked chicken is 165F.

If you follow my brined oven baked chicken recipe, you can bake thicker chicken breasts in a 425F-degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes. 


  • A 3-ounce boneless, skinless, chicken breast has around 140 calories, 3 grams of fat, and only 1 gram of saturated fat.
  • The healthiest way to eat chicken breasts is to bake in the oven or have it grilled. Calories do increase when you add fats and other ingredients to the chicken.

    Absolutely amazing! My husband said he felt like he was at a restaurant. I served this dish with garlic/olive oil spaghetti and a fresh salad. It was out of this world!

    Made this tonight and it was amazing. Except for using swiss cheese, I followed the recipe as written. Even my “I don’t like chicken” husband loved it!!! Will make again soon

  7. Marcie

    I cook almost every night so it becomes difficult to find new recipes. This was so amazing. I cannot wait to make it again. I loved the onion juice/gravy it made. Make sure to serve over pasta or rice so you can use up all that gravy. Yum!!

  8. Jenn

    Sounds delicious! Making this tonight. Would it work to also add a little sautéed spinach to the dish? If not, I’ll just serve it on the side. I feel like my family is more apt to eat the spinach if it’s part of the dish.

  9. David Coolwater
