The combination of juicy and tender chicken with a savory mushroom filling creates a dish that never fails to impress. I love to prepare this dish for special occasions or when I want to treat myself to a delicious homemade meal.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 8 oz of mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat and sauté the onions until they are soft and translucent.
  3. Add the mushrooms and garlic to the skillet and cook until the mushrooms are browned and the liquid has evaporated.
  4. Stir in the chopped spinach and cook until wilted. Remove the skillet from the heat and let the mixture cool.
  5. With a sharp knife, carefully cut a pocket into the side of each chicken breast.
  6. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then stuff each breast with the mushroom mixture and a generous amount of mozzarella cheese.
  7. Place the stuffed chicken breasts in a baking dish and sprinkle the grated parmesan cheese on top.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is golden and bubbly.
  9. Let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving.

I love how the earthy flavor of the mushrooms pairs perfectly with the tender chicken. The melted cheese adds a delightful creaminess, and the spinach infuses a pop of color and added nutrients. This dish never fails to impress my guests, and I always receive compliments when I serve it. The aroma that fills the kitchen as it bakes is just irresistible.

I often serve this mushroom stuffed chicken breast with a side of roasted vegetables or a fresh garden salad. The combination never disappoints, and it makes for a well-balanced and satisfying meal. Plus, the leftovers, if there are any, are just as delicious the next day.

The versatility of this dish is also worth mentioning. While I typically use a mix of button and cremini mushrooms, you can get creative with the mushroom varieties and adjust the filling to your preference. It’s a recipe that allows for experimentation and personalization, making it a staple in my kitchen.
