“I used to get something like this at a restaurant but they stopped serving it, so I made it up myself! You could cook the onion and mushroom in the same pan as the chicken if you'd like, but its easier for me to cook them seperately.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Onion and Mushroom Topping:.
  2. In a medium pan, fry the onion and garlic in 2 tbsp of butter until the onion is ALMOST clear.
  3. Add the mushroom and brown sugar.
  4. Add 1 to 2 tbsp of the bbq sauce you are going to use on the chicken.
  5. When the onions are clear and the mushroom soft and heated through, reduce the heat until needed for the chicken.
  6. Chicken:.
  7. In a large non stick pan, brown the chicken breasts on each side until they are nearly cooked through.
  8. Just before the breasts are done, pour equal amounts of bbq sauce over the chicken. Allow that to simmer until the breasts are completely cooked through.
  9. Reduce heat and top the chicken with the onion and mushroom mixture.
  10. Top with cheddar cheese, cover until just melted.
  11. Serve with a baked potato or your favorite sides.
  12. Enjoy!
