The Weekend Chef: Chicken with Mushrooms

This was a recipe that I had planned on making during the week.  My husband ended up being home though and ended up cooking dinner.  I love mushrooms.  Unfortunately, my kids don't.  This was a great dish for us because the kids could easily pick out the mushrooms (after they had their required one bite!). The kids love breaded chicken cutlets, which this basically was, kicked up a little notch with some melted cheese and mushrooms.  Simple and tasty for a quick and easy weeknight meal!
