I love mushrooms and rarely pass up a recipe that has mushrooms in it. This chicken recipe is easy enough for a weeknight meal and I’d bet that most kids would enjoy it – I know mine would.  My kids love mushrooms, too.  I went a little light (about half) on the rosemary because I  find it to be overpowering.   If you’re a fan of skin-on chicken breasts (I am) you can substitute.




4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (11/4 pounds)

5 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp chopped rosemary

Freshly ground pepper

1 lb shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded and caps thinly sliced

½ lb cremini mushrooms, stems discarded and caps thinly sliced

1 small onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp chopped thyme

3 medium tomatoes—halved, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch dice




In a medium baking dish, brush the chicken breasts with 1 tablespoon of the oil and rub with the rosemary. Season with pepper and let stand for 30 minutes.


Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large skillet. Add the mushrooms and cook over moderately high heat until browned, about 6 minutes.

Add the onion, garlic and thyme and cook until the onion is translucent, about 4 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Cover partially and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are tender, about 10 minutes.


Light a grill or preheat a grill pan.  Season the chicken with salt and grill over moderately high heat, turning once, until cooked through, about 8 minutes.


Season the mushroom sauce with salt and pepper and spoon onto plates. Slice the grilled chicken breasts on the diagonal ½-inch thick. Arrange the chicken over the mushroom sauce and serve.

Serves: 4
