How to make baked mushroom chicken breast recipe
This chicken breast recipe contains a handful of ingredients so it’s quick and very uncomplicated. I used a super easy method to make this recipe. Simply blitz the mushrooms until crumbly (see photo below), combine with the rest of the topping ingredients and spread the mixture over the chicken pieces. Then pop in the oven for 30 minutes. And that’s all there is to it! Then simply tuck in and enjoy.

Healthy Mushroom Chicken Recipe
For me an ideal family meal should not only be easy to make and delicious but also healthy. This recipe is!
I used only 2 tablespoons of butter in this recipe. Apart from the chicken breast (very low in fat) the recipe also contains a bit of breadcrumbs, some seasoning and lots and lots of mushrooms. So it’s lean and full of goodness.
Despite the low fat content in this baked chicken recipe the meat is juicy and tender and absolutely delicious! The mushroom topping is light and fluffy, and the whole thing has a melt-in-your-mouth quality.

Baked Mushroom Crusted Chicken Breast
- 3 large chicken breasts, cut in half lengthways, skinless
- 200 g mushrooms
- 2 tbsp butter, melted
- 2 tbsp breadcrumbs
- 1/3 tsp onion granules
- Sea salt and pepper to taste

- Chop the mushrooms roughly, then place in a blender and blitz for a few seconds to obtain a crumbly mixture (do not puree the mixture, it shouldn't be mushy). Do this in batches if you have a small blender.
