Chicken Lombardy

This is easy enough for a weeknight dinner, but elegant enough for company!

Chicken Lombardy

1 8oz. package sliced fresh mushrooms

2 T. butter, melted

6 skinned and boned chicken breasts

1/2 cup flour

1/3 cup butter

3/4 cup Marsala

1/2 cup chicken broth

1/2 t. salt

1/8 t. pepper

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

2 green onions, chopped

1. Cook mushrooms in 2 T. butter until tender. Remove and set aside.

2. Cut each chicken breast in half, lengthwise, flatten using a rolling pin or meat mallet to 1/8 inch thickness.

3. Dredge chicken pieces in flour. Cook chicken, in batches in 1-2 T. butter over medium heat, 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Place chicken in a 9x13 , lightly greased baking dish, overlapping the edges. Repeat procedure with remaining chicken and butter. Reserve pan drippings in skillet. Cover chicken with mushrooms.

4. Add wine and broth to skillet. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes. Stir in salt and pepper. Pour sauce over chicken. Combine cheeses and green onions; sprinkle over chicken.

5. Bake, uncovered at 450 for 12-14 minutes or until cheese melts.

I served this with a side of steamed green beans and pasta.

That looks SO good! Too bad we don't live closer because otherwise you would have had company for dinner last night.

Wow! Will have to try that when we get home. Sunset Beach was lovely. Thought of you and Christy. Glad you told me about BigNell's I may not have thought to try it. We'll see if we can fit it in. Our Inn has breakfast included. It has good choices and fruit loops for the kids. :) It is so nice and quite here = still the 'off season.' :) Just like me like it.

This is a recipe I will have to try out! We are trying to make new recipes, as the ones we have been making for almost thirteen years now are feeling rather repetitious about now! Thanks for the recipe! :)
