Smothered Chicken

2 servings

Ingredients:
2 chicken breasts weighing approximately 5 oz each.  Alternatively smaller pieces of chicken can be used weighing 10 oz total.
8 oz chopped mushrooms and green onions mixture
1 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
1 tbs olive oil

Directions:
Pound the chicken breasts till they are thinner – approximately 1/2 inch.  Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat.

When oil is hot, place chicken breasts in pan and allow to cook thoroughly on one side.  This usually takes approximately 6 minutes or so.  Turn the chicken when it has a nice brown color.

When chicken has been turned, spread the chopped mushrooms and green onions mixture over both chicken breasts.  Cover pan so steam will tenderize the vegetables.  Cook approximately 6 more minutes.

Sprinkle shredded cheese over vegetables.  Allow the heat to melt the cheese.  Remove from pan and let rest a few minutes before serving.

Notes:
Use pepper jack cheese, green peppers, and tomatoes for a more southwest flavor.
