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.

    This was so yummy. I added fresh baby spinach on top of each piece of chicken before topping with the 2 cheeses. This way I didn’t have to make a vegetable. I ate it with leftover linguine.

    1. Natasha says:

      Love that!! So glad it was a hit, Mary!

    Absolutely loved this recipe!! Do you think there is a crock pit option or an option to make a bigger portion?

    1. Natasha says:

      Hi Nicole! I’m thrilled you enjoyed it! I’d probably sear the chicken in batches then transfer it to a 9×13 casserole dish and you could fit more pieces of chicken in that way (increase sauce and cheese etc.), then finish it in the oven. I am not sure how you’d do it in a slow cooker as it would be a bit difficult to guess without testing – sorry!

    Delicious! I added some chopped shallots when I sautéed the mushrooms. Next time I might pound the chicken after slicing because I usually do that. A hit with my husband and son.

    1. Natasha says:

      Thank you so much! I’m so glad it was a hit! 😀

    I’ve made this several times and it has become a family favorite. I’m making it for my wife’s parents tonight, so we’ll see how it goes!

    1. Natasha says:

      Great!! Good luck with the parents. 😀

    Delicious easy weeknight meal. I used 1 split chicken breast and whole recipe of sauce. I skipped the Mozzarella to cut down on fat and Served over grilled eggplant sprinkled with a small bit of 3 Italian cheese blend before taking from oven. Husband said “Save this recipe.” Loved it!

    1. Miranda @ Salt & Lavender says:

      Happy you both liked it, Tas! 🙂

    OMG This was so good!! I love the Parmesan under the mozzarella, such a flavor!! I will double the sauce next time, it was SO good

    1. Miranda @ Salt & Lavender says:

      Awesome! Thrilled you enjoyed it, Doreen.

    I tried to post a picture but it wouldn’t let me. I added more seasonings and when I removed the chicken from the pan after searing it, I added mushrooms and onions and Caramelized them for about 20-25 minutes. I added more wine and chicken broth than called for and used a little flour to thicken the sauce – all done so we’d have extra sauce. My husband LOVED it and so did I.

    1. Natasha says:

      Hi Mary! Yes… my website doesn’t have the capability for readers to upload photos on here – sorry! But if you happen to be on Instagram and tag me, I will see it. 🙂 I’m thrilled you guys enjoyed it. Appreciate your review!
