Chicken Georgia by Paula Deen from What's Cookin?
4 tablespoon (1/2 stick) butter
4 skinless boneless chicken breast
1-2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms, (or canned if you don't have fresh on hand)
1 onion, diced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 ounce grated mozzarella cheese (or 8 oz if you like it smothered)
This dish can be done as a one pot meal, but I preheated the oven to 350 and let the cheese melt till bubbly. Melt butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms and onions and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook 10 minutes. Add chicken and cook 10 minutes on each side, or until tender. Transfer chicken to platter and sprinkle with grated cheese. Top with mushroom mixture. Cook and let stand 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
Review: I cut the butter to 2.5 tablespoons. The chicken was very moist. Remember to season chicken before placing it in the pan. My two year old loved the chicken! We added extra cheese and mushrooms! Great weeknight meal!On the food network sight it was suggested to add some white wine so I'll have to try it next time!
