Mushroom Spinach Chicken

Chicken breast smothered with mushroom, spinach, onion, goat cheese, and parmesan. Pair this Mushroom and Spinach Chicken with green beans or mashed potatoes for a tasty dinner!

This one-pan chicken recipe is really good. It has sauteed onions and mushrooms mixed with spinach and goat cheese. If that didn’t sound good enough, I topped it all off with parmesan cheese. In total, this takes 40 minutes to make (15 of that is just it baking in the oven). I paired it with green beans for a light dinner.

This recipe was inspired by Ambitious Kitchen’s Goat Cheese & Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast. I’m not a huge fan of stuffing chicken, I feel like I get too much chicken and not enough filling. So I modified the recipe by using thinner chicken breast and placing the mushroom, onion, spinach, and goat cheese mixture on top of the chicken. But I couldn’t stop there and added parmesan on top of that.

Do you have questions?

Can I make this if I don’t have an oven-safe skillet?

If you don’t have an oven-safe skillet, do steps 1-6 in a large skillet, place the chicken on a sheet pan, top it with the vegetable mixture and sprinkle parmesan on top. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Watch how it’s made…
