Recipe Collection: Stuffed Mushroom Chicken

admin April 13, 2020

I have a tiny obsession with mushrooms.  (And I’m okay with it.)  They are delicious in sauces, pan-fried, and stuffed.  I’ve made stuffed mushrooms many times and just love the flavors, no matter what they’re stuffed with.  I’m partial to the Cheesecake Factory version with lots of cheese and a wine sauce.

That’s what I had in mind when I also decided that I needed to make stuffed chicken.  So…why not combine them?

It’s the flavors of a stuffed mushroom, with small breadcrumbs and cheese and wine…added to some delicious chicken.  Served alongside garlic mashed potatoes and garlic green beans…uh, yes please.

Recipe Collection: Stuffed Mushroom Chicken

This is actually fairly quick and easy to make.  It can be on the table in under an hour, with maybe half of that being active time.  Maybe not a busy weeknight meal, but certainly a casual, stay-at-home Friday meal.  And it’s fancy enough that you could serve it for company, too.

A note on the stuffing: if I’m making regular (not gluten-free) stuffing, I make this bread recipe, then slice it and cube it and then dry it in the oven at 250 for about an hour, until the cubes are completely dry.  Then, for every 2 cups of dry bread cubes, I add 1 tsp. dried onion, 1 tsp. sage, and 1/2 tsp. parsley.

This time, I wanted it to be gluten-free, and I didn’t want to take the extra step of making my homemade gluten-free bread recipe (which I haven’t posted yet), so I just used Aleia’s Gluten-Free Stuffing Mix (you can find that HERE).  Feel free to choose whatever stuffing mix you prefer, but read the ingredients on it and choose a clean one.

Ingredients:

  • 4 large chicken breasts, slit to create a pocket
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 16 oz. mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 4 – 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 2 oz. Romano cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups gluten-free stuffing mix (or regular bread cubes)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • Sprinkle black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. green onions

Step 1: Carefully cut your chicken breasts through the middle, but not all the way, to create a pocket for your stuffing.  If it doesn’t stay all the way closed, and there are holes in it…it will be okay.  Set them aside.

Step 2: Melt butter in a large skillet on medium heat.  Add the chicken, sprinkled with salt and pepper, and cook on each side for about 5 min or until golden brown.  It won’t be cooked through, but that’s okay.  Transfer chicken to a baking dish, and set aside.

Step 3: Add the butter, onion, and mushrooms to the skillet.  Cook for about 5 minutes, or until veggies are softened.  Preheat oven to 350.

Step 4: Add the garlic and cook for another minute.  Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.

Step 5: Add the wine and stir to get any bits of the bottom of the pan.

Step 6: Add the stuffing mix, green onions, and cheese and stir it all together.

Step 7: Scoop the stuffing mix into the chicken pockets.  Get as much in as you can.

Step 8: Bake the chicken for about 25 – 30 min, or until cooked through.  Serve immediately, or it can be refrigerated or frozen until later — it reheats well!  (I made a bunch and portioned it out for meals later.)

Enjoy!
