Smothered Chicken

I love to have a few recipes to fall back on when you need something quick and that you have the ingredients on hand. This recipe is one of them. I hope you give it a try soon!!

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
garlic powder & seasoned salt
2 T. oil, divided
4 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced (see NOTE)
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1/2 cup bacon bits

Flatten chicken to 1/4" thickness.  Season with the garlic powder & seasoned salt.

In a large nonstick skillet, over medium heat, saute' the sliced mushrooms in 1 T. oil for about 3-4 minutes.  Remove from skillet.  Add the remaining tablespoon of oil & brown the chicken for about 4 minutes.  Turn & top with the mushrooms, cheese, green onions & bacon bits.  Cover & cook until the juices run clear and cheese is melted, about 4 minutes.

Makes 4 servings.

NOTE:  You can sub canned mushrooms for fresh and omit the sauteeing part.  However, fresh are so much better!
