- Grill the Chicken
Pat the chicken breasts dry with a paper towel.
Heat your grill or skillet to medium high. Grill the chicken breasts for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through.
- Make the Condensed Soup
Mix the can of condensed soup with water in a small pot. Heat the pot over medium heat until the soup and water combine.
- Sauté the Mushrooms
Heat a saucepan over medium high heat.
Add vegetable oil and chopped mushrooms. Cook for 1-2 minutes until they begin to brown.
Add 1 tbsp of flour and toss with the sautéed portobello mushrooms. Don’t let the flour brown, or it will become bitter.
- Add Soup Mix
Slowly pour the mushroom soup mixture into the pan with the mushrooms. Stir while the mixture comes to a low boil.
- Season the Sauce
Add white pepper, salt, sugar and garlic powder to the sauce. Let the spices cook with the sauce for 2-3 minutes.
- Melt Cheese on the Chicken
While your sauce is simmering, set your oven to 400°F.
Place your chicken breasts on a parchment paper lined baking tray. Sprinkle shredded Monterey Jack cheese on top of each chicken breast.
Heat chicken in the oven until the cheese melts. About 1 minute.
- Cover Chicken with Portobello Mushroom Sauce
Remove the chicken from the oven and plate. Ladle the mushroom sauce on top of the chicken.
- Garnish and Serve!
Garnish your chicken breasts with freshly grated parmesan cheese, and freshly chopped parsley. Serve and enjoy!
We know chicken and mushroom go together, but beef and mushroom is another classic pairing. They’re most famously brought together in delicious dishes like mushroom beef stroganoff.
Since they pair so nicely, feel free to swap out the chicken for a juicy steak in this recipe. The beef is fattier than chicken, so it will add more flavor and richness to the sauce!
Fish (Salmon/Sea Bass)
If you’re looking for something leaner than chicken, try using fish like salmon or sea bass. These fish are low in fat and can be grilled the same as chicken.
Other firm fish with a steak-like texture will work too, such as halibut or cod.
Monterey Jack cheese is mild and melts well, so it doesn’t overpower the mushroom sauce.
If you can’t find Monterey Jack, you can substitute it for similar cheeses like Colby or white cheddar. Cheddar is more sharp tasting, whereas Colby cheese has more of a mild flavor.
What To Serve With Texas Roadhouse Portobello Mushroom Chicken
Juicy, sweet corn kernels are just what this rich dish needs! They add an element of freshness and taste delicious combined with the mushroom sauce.
A side of steamed rice will soak up all those delicious portobello mushroom flavors. Rice is an excellent side for saucy dishes such as this as it doesn’t overpower the flavor.
To lighten up this dish, add a side of either steamed vegetables or salad. It will help balance out the richness of the chicken and cleanse the palate.
Mashed or baked potato will warm your stomach and make this dish nice and hearty. Try serving this chicken on a bed of mashed potatoes to soak up all those delicious flavors!
Storing And Reheating Instructions
When storing leftovers, make sure the chicken and sauce are completely cooled. Placing hot food in the fridge will bring down the temperature and potentially spoil any other food.
Once the chicken is cooled, place it in an airtight container and store it in the fridge for 1-2 days. You can also store this chicken in the freezer, where it will keep for up to 6 months.
To reheat this portobello mushroom chicken, simply add it to a saucepan and heat it on the stove. It should take about 3-4 minutes on medium-high heat for the chicken to get hot.
Nutrition Tips and Advice
Although it’s intensely flavorful, this portobello mushroom chicken is low in fat.
Chicken and mushrooms are both incredibly lean sources of protein. That means that the majority of the fat content comes from the cheese and creamy condensed soup.
To make this recipe even healthier, you can opt for low-fat condensed soup. Low-fat cheese is also an option but I’d say the flavor of full-fat is worth it! – Kirsten Mae Magbanua, RND
