Company Chicken

February 6, 2024 - Country Cooking

Company Chicken is the chicken dish to impress. So much flavor in every bite. Pan-fried and then covered in mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, chopped ham, and tons of mozzarella cheese. Finished in the oven, this boneless, skinless chicken breast recipe is wonderfully decadent.

How To Make Company Chicken

Saute the chicken. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts get coated in a flour, oregano, and Parmesan cheese mixture and then pan-fried until golden on each side.

Cook the topping. Next cook some mushrooms and onions in butter. Then add garlic, red pepper flakes, and sun-dried tomatoes. Pour over chicken.

Add ham and cheese. Sprinkle some chopped ham and shredded mozzarella cheese over the chicken. Bake 20 to 22 minutes to cook chicken through and melt the cheese.

How To Serve

This chicken dish is a super rich and filling meal. It goes well with steamed asparagus or broccoli or a garden salad with Creamy Italian Dressing or Creamy Balsamic Dressing and some Yeast Rolls.

Recipe Tip

You want to pound the chicken breasts out to get them even in thickness. If they are super large, go ahead and cut each one in half horizontally instead of pounding them.

Variations

Try using diced zucchini instead of mushrooms or in addition to mushrooms.

Leave the crushed red pepper flakes out if you don’t want it spicy.

Use swiss cheese or Colby Jack cheese instead of mozzarella.

Add 1/3 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese for more cheese flavor.

How To Store

Leftovers will keep for 4 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Reheats well in a microwave.
