Chicken with Mushrooms

I made this for dinner a couple of weeks ago and it was so rich and delicious. Brian and I both loved it. If you need a recipe that will mix up your chicken routine, this one will make you glad you did.

Chicken with Mushrooms
Adapted from

3 cups sliced mushrooms
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbs. onion, chopped
4 chicken breasts (you can pound them thinner for more flavor)
2 eggs + 2 tsp. water, beaten
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
Sprinkle of Oregano and Thyme
1-2 Tbs. Olive Oil
1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream or milk
Cooked Rice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine bread crumbs and seasonings in bowl (you can use whichever seasonings you like best, but you need enough to season all 4 breasts). Heat half of the oil in large skillet. Dip chicken into egg mixture and then bread crumb mixture til completely coated. Salt and pepper both sides. Brown chicken on both sides in skillet. Place in a 9 X 13 pan. Pour remaining oil in same skillet and saute the mushrooms with garlic and onions until they are softened, about 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and cream/milk to pan. Stir to combine. Pour mushroom mixture on top of chicken breasts and top with mozzarella cheese. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until juices run clear. Serve over fresh rice.
