Mushroom & Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts In Creamy Sauce

stuffed chicken breastsAre you searching for that perfect dish to impress your guests with this summer?  I know you want something that looks impressive but is fairly simple to make.  You just want them to think you spent hours slaving away  in the kitchen; but you really just want to pop something in the oven while you snuggle up to a good book.  Well I’ve go the perfect dish for you!  °

Well perhaps super easy is a bit of a stretch.  You do have to put some effort into making stuffed chicken breasts, but not a whole lot, really I mean it.  You probably have most of the ingredients in your kitchen already.  With just a little bit of prep time (before popping everything in the oven) and a few minutes to make the sauce you will have time to sit down and read a book or take a short nap while it’s cooking.

You can serve this dish with a side of pasta for a very satisfying meal.  Add a tossed salad and you’ve got a great meal to serve to friends and family!  Seriously your main ingredients are garlic, mushrooms, cheese, and chicken what’s not to love?
