Chicken with white wine and mushrooms is a great combo, but I decided to take it up a notch with this recipe. Behold this cheesy delight. This recipe reminds me a bit of French onion soup… like you get the broth and then the melted cheese. Different ingredients but you get the idea. Hopefully. 😛 The lighter (but fabulously buttery) sauce is the perfect complement to the cheeses.

This is a mushroom chicken bake of sorts… we start it in the skillet and then finish it in the oven.

Recipe notes & tips:

  • I don’t have a brand preference for the white wine, but for cooking I tend to buy sauv blanc or pinot grigio.
  • Feel free to swap the cremini mushrooms for another kind (e.g. baby bellas or white mushrooms).
  • I highly recommend getting an oven-proof skillet if you don’t own one already. It’s so handy to take it from the stove to the oven without having to transfer the food to a baking dish. This is the skillet pictured in the photos.
  • To make this (and many other recipes) hassle-free, I love using kitchen tongs to quickly and easily flip the chicken, and I love my splatter guard to make clean-up easier.
  • I prefer to grate my own parmesan cheese – I always keep a block in my fridge. The flavor and texture is just so much better than the pre-grated stuff.
  • If you’re ever unsure about whether chicken is cooked, always use an instant read meat thermometer to ensure it’s 165F in the deepest part.

What to serve with this recipe?

Rice, mashed potatoes, or pasta. Veggies (try my Easy Roasted Green Beans) or a salad if you’re looking for something lighter works too.

Mozzarella Mushroom White Wine Chicken

Melty mozzarella and parmesan cheeses make this mushroom white wine chicken extra delicious!
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 25 minutes
Total: 35 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 2 large chicken breasts cut in half lengthwise
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Flour for dredging
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter divided
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 dash Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped finely


  • Cut the chicken in half lengthwise to make 4 thinner pieces. Sprinkle the chicken with garlic powder and salt & pepper on both sides, then coat the chicken in flour.
  • Preheat the oven to 400F.
  • Add the oil and 1 tablespoon of the butter to a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, cook the chicken for 4-5 min/side until golden. Transfer chicken to a plate. I like to chop the mushrooms while the chicken cooks, but feel free to prep ingredients beforehand.
  • Add the remaining butter to the skillet and once it melts, add in the mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms release their water and then get a nice sear (about 5-6 minutes).
  • Stir in the wine, chicken broth, and Italian seasoning. Let the sauce bubble for about a minute, and scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the chicken back into the pan and spoon the sauce and some mushrooms over top. Take the pan off the heat.
  • Top the chicken with the parmesan, followed by the mozzarella. I like to sprinkle the majority of the cheese over the chicken, but also sprinkle some on the sauce if you wish.
  • Place the skillet in the oven and cook for 5 minutes, then turn the broiler on and cook for an additional few minutes or until the cheese has browned a bit. If you don't want to broil, I recommend leaving it in the oven for 7 minutes or so.
  • Take the pan out of the oven and sprinkle the fresh parsley on top. Serve immediately (spoon the juices over rice or mashed potatoes or whatever you're serving it with).


  • If you don't have an oven-proof skillet, transfer the skillet contents to a baking dish for step 7.

    I have made this several times for two. Always delicious, followed recipe exactly. I served it, tonight, with rice pilaf and peas. Nice week night dinner.

    1. Natasha says:

      I’m thrilled to hear that, Deborah!

  3. Linda says:

    Followed the directions exactly but next time I will double the sauce ingredients and try adding spinach. Delicious. I will definitely be making again. Thanks for sharing.

      You’re very welcome, Linda!

    I am making for Christmas. Because my oven will be used do you think this can made in slow cooker that has stove top & baked feature. This is one of our very favorite meals.

    1. Natasha says:

      Hi Faith! I’ve only tested it as written – sorry. 🙁 You’d have to experiment a bit, but I don’t feel comfortable guessing without testing.

    I cut pockets it the breast and stuff cheeses, (Gruyere and mozzarella) and some mushrooms and thyme then sew the pocket. I sear my chicken in clarified butter for about 2 to 4 minutes aside depending on thickness. I try to attain 155 internal temp and then set on plate and they’ll raise to about 160 and then 170 once finished. Very tender and juicy.

    Your’s is a lot less work intensive and turned out excellent. Thank you for posting. I did toast the cheese under the broiler.

    How can I attach a picture of the finished product?

    1. Natasha says:

      So glad you enjoyed it, Mike! You can’t attach a photo on here, but if you post an Instagram story and tag me in it (and your account isn’t private), I’ll see it and repost. 🙂

    Thanks for making an easy chicken and mushroom with white wine dish NOT using cream of mushroom soup! Too many recipes that calls for it, when Googling, since it’s easy. I love easy, but we have to stay away from cream of any sort in this house.

    I followed pretty closely with a few modifications. For the spices, I used Montreal Chicken Seasoning by McCormick (we love it on chicken when grilling).

    The butter, I only used in some bowtie pasta to go with the chicken, then spooned the white wine, seasoning broth (what was left after cooking) on top of the pasta.

    I just used more olive oil with the chicken and mushrooms (a household member doesn’t like the smell of sauteed butter otherwise I would have followed the instructions).

    First time we used the broiler in the newer oven, and it was worth it! Very browned melty cheese!

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it! 😀

    We have made this multiple times since we found this recipe. Always fantastic! We make more than we can eat in one sitting so we can seal and freeze the leftovers. Then just throw the frozen packet in boiling water for 15 mins and it’s just as good as fresh! Super easy quick after work dinner.

    1. Miranda @ Salt & Lavender says:

      Thrilled to hear it, Mike! Thanks for that freezer tip. 🙂
