Mushroom Muenster Chicken

This is one of those recipe names that you pretty much know what the dish is… the 3 main ingredients in this dish are mushrooms, muenster cheese, and chicken. And a good combo that is!!! Really, how could you go wrong with those ingredients.

This recipe was in my pile of loose recipes. It’s clipped out of a Country Woman magazine, I don’t know what year or month. It was on page 51… I guess you don’t need to know that, unless you want to go thro’ your stack of Country Woman magazines and look up all the page 51s. 😉 In the italic print with the recipe, it says it won 1st place in a festival contest.

Mushroom Muenster Chicken

2 eggs
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs (I used crushed Town House crackers and mixed in a bit of Italian seasoning and seasoned salt.) 
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1″ cubes
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 tsp. Cajun seasoning
1/2 lb. sliced fresh mushrooms
10 oz. Muenster cheese (I have a little scale, so I dutifully weighed the cheese and guess what! 10 oz was exactly 10 slices!)

In a shallow bowl, beat eggs. Place breadcrumbs in a large resealable plastic bag. Dip chicken in eggs, then place in bag and shake to coat.

In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Cover and bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.

Yield: 6 servings. Serve with a mixed green salad or steamed fresh green beans. I served it with California blend veggies (cauliflower, broccoli, and carrots) and crescent rolls. And to serve the chicken, I just put a serving spoon in it and we dished it out like you would a casserole.

This tastes great and is easy to throw together, but we thought it was a little greasy. I want to try it with grilled chicken to see if the greasiness was from frying the chicken in oil. If it’s still greasy w\ grilled chicken, I’ll assume it’s because of the muenster cheese and try mozzarella or provolone instead.

    This sounds like it would be really good with bacon on top! I’ll have to try it, we love to eat chicken!

    This looks really yummy, but as usual I’ll have to make a seperate dish made with soy faux chicken for my vegetarian son. The cheese he’ll eat though. Thanks!

    My mouth is watering- 3 of my favorite foods here. Unfortunately, I’m about the only one in my family who enjoys mushrooms. As a side note, have you ever tried tallying nutritional information with any of your recipes (calories, fat, etc)? I’m not sure how to do it, but it’d be interesting to see how some recipes pan out.

    Angela, I actually do tally calories pretty often, I don’t do the other info though, like fat grams etc. I don’t really wanna put it on here because it would kinda wreck it for some people… “Oh, yum, that looks good! I oughta make it! Oh no, it has 640 calories per serving, guess I won’t.” (This dish isn’t 640 cal per serving, but those caramel pecan pancakes from awhile ago were close to 1000!) 😉

    We tried this recipe with a blended colby cheese and Adobe seasoning (what we had on hand). It was DELICIOUS; definitely make again. Thanks for sharing such a simpl, yet tastey dish

    Congrats on this, my mouth was watering as i read it. My mind was thinking, a bit greasy, and then i saw that you wrote that the family also thought the same. Maybe after covering the chicken in bread crumbs, roasting them off in the oven to brown as oppossed to frying? would certainly cutdown on the grease.
    Must try this at home, reckon the family will love it.

    Greetings from portugal.

    Much love,
